  35. 35. Leadership in a Data-Dense World<br />19 July 2011<br />
  36. 36. July 11<br />Leadership<br />27<br />What I Just heard <br />
  37. 37. There seems to be:<br />Unlimited potential – Let’s expand everywhere<br />Too many choices<br />Overwhelming data, but not enough clarity <br />July 11<br />Leadership<br />28<br />
  38. 38. July 11<br />Leadership<br />29<br />Preliminary Survey<br />How many of you are CEOs?<br />How many of you have can itemise a clear set of 5 key Performance Indicators?<br />Do you track these Monthly?<br />Can you specifically state what your business boundaries are? What do you do, and what you do you not do?<br />
  39. 39. Common problems for CEOs<br />Lack of vision – in the name of being “Flexible” or “Opportunistic”<br />Struggle for Control – failure to delegate in the name of “Quality”<br />Avoidance of making choices – thinking we can have it all<br />Uncomfortable with missing out – stretch too thin<br />Sweating the small stuff (or possibly sweating the wrong stuff!)<br />July 11<br />Leadership<br />30<br />
  40. 40. July 11<br />Leadership<br />31<br />What are the scarce resources?<br />Management Bandwidth & Energy<br />Teamwork<br />Timely decision making<br />
  41. 41. July 11<br />Leadership<br />32<br />What are the scarce resources?<br />Management Bandwidth & Energy<br />Teamwork<br />Timely decision making<br /> Let’s protect & preserve these attributes religiously<br />
  42. 42. July 11<br />Leadership<br />33<br />The Long & Winding road – Leadership needs to blend & decide<br />
  43. 43. Fact 1<br />Numerous studies have shown that decisions made under time pressure and without data, generally suffer little in quality from those decisions with ample time & data. Instincts are an amazing feature of human learning.<br /> Moreover, there are clear benefits from timely decisions only part correct, versus late decisions more correct<br />
  44. 44. Fact 2<br />The human mind tends to over-estimate the pain of a possible mistake.<br /> Then, the mind under-estimates the time needed & ability to bounce back from a mistake.<br />Result: Caution, dwelling on failures, and low risk taking; a perfect survival strategy for a Neanderthal<br />
  45. 45. What are some lessons from success stories?<br />Learn to love the word “No” – it will save you a lot of wasted time and money chasing situations with little prospect<br />
  46. 46. What are some lessons from success stories?<br />Learn to love the word “No” – it will save you a lot of wasted time and money chasing situations with little prospect<br />Seek to find a “fit” with others, rather than sell them on something they may or may not really want<br />
  47. 47. What are some lessons from success stories?<br />Learn to love the word “No” – it will save you a lot of wasted time and money chasing situations with little prospect<br />Seek to find a “fit” with others, rather than sell them on something they may or may not really want<br />Fearless & curious – ask Why, rather than What from your Partners & Mentors<br />
  48. 48. What are some lessons from success stories?<br />Learn to love the word “No” – it will save you a lot of wasted time and money chasing situations with little prospect<br />Seek to find a “fit” with others, rather than sell them on something they may or may not really want<br />Fearless & curious – ask Why, rather than What from your Partners & Mentors<br />Leaders empower others, and stream line to reduce barriers<br />
  49. 49. What are some lessons from success stories?<br />Learn to love the word “No” – it will save you a lot of wasted time and money chasing situations with little prospect<br />Seek to find a “fit” with others, rather than sell them on something they may or may not really want<br />Fearless & curious – ask Why, rather than What from your Partners & Mentors<br />Leaders empower others, and stream line to reduce barriers<br />Decide to decide! Timely matters more than Perfection.<br />
  50. 50. July 11<br />Leadership<br />41<br />What does great Leadership look like?<br />
  51. 51. July 11<br />Leadership<br />42<br />It’s not like this!<br />
  52. 52. Set the agenda for your team<br />Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisibleinto the visible. <br />~ Tony Robbins<br />July 11<br />Leadership<br />43<br />
  53. 53. July 11<br />Leadership<br />44<br />Focus the Team via a “Dashboard” based on Critical KPIs<br />
  54. 54. Great Leadership maps out:<br />July 11<br />Leadership<br />45<br />Vision – what we do, and equally, what we don’t do!<br />Priorities<br />Delegates - Accepts mistakes of others are a cost of doing business<br />
