  6. 5 CHARACTERISTICS OF INSPIRING LEADERS My observations of the leaders I met
  7. 5 characteristics of inspiring leaders 1. Great leaders have a clear purpose, they are “up to something”, and excite others about that purpose 2. They focus on context not content to choose how they behave 3. They mindfully manage their energies: spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical 4. They’re obsessed with customers and customer-centred growth 5. Every great leader commits to being at their best: personally and for their teams #TipsFromTheTop
  8. 1. Great leaders have a clear purpose Their purpose extends outside their immediate occupation: they were all involved in charity work, community work or non- exec roles in other companies
  9. 2. They focus on context not content to choose how they behave “My job is to create an environment that people can be at their best most of the time”
  10. 3. They mindfully manage their energies 4 Leadership Energies: Spiritual, Emotional, Intellectual & Physical The more senior you get, the bigger is the manifestation and impact of your emotions Leaders need to signal, explain in what mode they are in so people know what to expect You need to contribute and engage in the meetings you are in. If you are not doing that, DON’T GO!
  11. 4. They’re obsessed with customers and customer-centred growth Winning companies translate what customers want into customer value Marketing’s role is to champion this across the company. “If Marketing doesn’t drive the customer agenda. Who else will?” Learn to love customers problems. They can be the source of future growth
  12. 5. Every great leader commits to being at their best Leaders… …are authentic and transparent …have personal humility and professional will …are committed to their team’s success …listen with intent
