      • Leaders & Workers
        • All good-to-great companies had a “Level 5” leader at the time of their transition
    •  
    • Level 5 Leadership
      • Concern for the success of an institution is more important than individual riches or prominence (successors)
      • Leaders are still ambitious but it is directed towards their organizations and not themselves!
      • Blend Humility & Will
        • Both modest & determined; humble & fearless
    • Level 5 Training

        • Clock Building, Not Time Keeping
    • First WHO…Then What GET THE RIGHT PEOPLE ON THE BUS!
    • First Who…Then What
      • If people join the bus because of where it’s going what happens when it needs to change directions?
      • Great vision without great people is pointless
      • Hire outstanding people when you find them, even without a specific job in mind
      • Get the best people, build the best managers, and accept their recruitment
    • David Maxwell (Fannie Mae)
      • “I don’t know where we should take this company, but I do know that if I start with the right people, ask them the right questions, and engage them in vigorous debate, we will find a way to make this company great.”
    • First Who Then What
      • Focusing on “what” before “who” = L-4 Leadership
      • 1 Genius with 1,000 workers  Does not work!
      • It’s not how you compensate your executives, it’s about which executives you have to compensate in the first place
      • Compensation therefore is only important in the sense that it help attract and retain the “right” people, and should not be used to get the “right” behaviors from the wrong people
      • People are NOT the most important asset;
      • The “right” people are
    • Be Rigorous not Ruthless
      • Apply challenging standards at all times and at all levels (especially upper management)
      • If people are not going to work on the bus they shouldn’t be kept
        • acquisitions
      • The way to reward people who do achieve is by not burdening them with the people who are not achieving
      • If they’re not going to make it on the bus, don’t let them suffer (ruthless); deal with it right up front and let people move on (rigor)
    • How to Be Rigorous
      • When in doubt, don’t hire but keep looking
        • Disciplined hiring practices
      • When you know you need to make a personnel change, act
      • Use your best for big opportunities, not problems
    • The “RIGHT” Person
      • More about character traits and innate capabilities than their specific knowledge, background, or skills

    • Good to Great Companies
      • Confront the Brutal Facts
      • There is no worse mistake in public leadership than to hold out false hopes soon to be swept away .
      • -Winston S. Churchill
    • Distinctive Decision Making Process
      • Great Companies did not stumble upon good decisions - Disciplined thought process
      • Entire process infused with the brutal facts of reality
    • Truth Seeking
      • When you start with an honest and diligent effort to determine the truth of a situation the “right” decision often becomes self-evident.
    • Create a climate of truth
      • Lead with questions, not answers .
      • Socratic- Why?
      • Argyris and Schon- double-loop learning
    • 2. Engage in dialogue and debate, not coercion
      • Encourage raging, passionate discussion aimed at finding the best answer.. NOT just letting people “have their say” in a predetermined decision.
    • 3. Conduct Autopsies, without blame
          • Dive into the situation, find out what went wrong, take responsibility, learn from the mistakes, and move on.
    • Build “red flag” mechanisms
      • Real time information that can not be ignored.
    • The Stockdale Paradox
      • Retain faith that you will prevail in the end, regardless of the difficulties.
      • Confront the most brutal facts of your current reality whatever they might be.
      AND
    • Great Companies “ N ever confuse faith that you will prevail with the discipline to confront the brutal facts of your current reality.” Admiral Stockdale

    • The Hedgehog & The Fox
      • Isaiah Berlin – “The Fox is cunning and good at many different things. The Hedgehog is a simple dowdy creature that knows one big thing.”
    • The Three Intersecting Circles
    • Key Points
      • Understand what your organization can be or is the best at
      • If you cannot be the best at your core business, then your core business cannot be the center of your Hedgehog Concept
      • You may be competent in one area but not the best in the world at it-the converse may also be true
      • To understand what drives your economic engine, search for the one denominator that has the single greatest impact
    • The Council
    • Key Points
      • A process to help understand important issues concerning the organization
      • The Council is put together by the leading executive and usually consists of 5 to 12 people
      • Encourages debate & respect for all members and their points of view
      • Members come from all parts of the organization
      • Each member has an in depth knowledge of some aspect of the organization and/or the environment it operates in
      • The Council is a standing body-not an ad hoc committee assembled for a particular project or task
      • Meets periodically
    • “ A Hedgehog Concept is not a goal to be the best, a strategy to be the best, an intention to be the best, a plan to be the best. It is an understanding of what you can be the best at. The distinction is absolutely crucial” Jim Collins, Good to Great
