Copying what works for one leader and applying it in your own workplace can bring poor results. For example, benchmarking—the leadership approach that worked for Jack Welch—doesn’t work in every organization.

Most notably, Ford’s failed experiment with benchmarking ended with a $10.5 million settlement of two class-action suits. The CEO at the time, Jacques A. Nasser, sent the company reeling because he’d acted without building the right foundation.

Moving from good to great means knowing who you are and what you are meant to do.
