A few months ago, I was a guest on the Groco ‘American Dreams‘ program.
‘Groco’ is Greenstein, Rogoff, Olsen & Co., LLP — a Certified Public Accounting firm located in the Silicon Valley region of the San Francisco Bay Area, serving high net worth individuals. Alan Olsen is managing partner at Groco, and has hosted the ‘American Dreams‘ show since 2011, where he interviews business and technology professionals to learn about their path in life and what it took for them to build their success.
We started out by discussing some of my military and business history, and from there we moved into discussing an overview of The Big 6 Leadership Principles®.
Going further, let’s dive in a bit to some of what else we discussed:
- Change takes time.
- You can’t really build leadership development in a week or 30 days.
- Leadership principles can be seen as really the interlocking components of building towards a world class leadership model.
- A team can move maybe from level three to level four, very few of us will ever be level five. Persistence is vital.
- Leadership coaching workshops.
- Try to build an enduring relationship — where teams can grow together, and they’re invested in each other.
- Workshops must be practical, application focused, and outcomes based.
- Have measurable goals so progress can be checked on along the way.
