Operate at the top of your game

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Like all leaders, sometimes you’re at the top of your game and sometimes you’re not.

To tip the scale toward excellence, you don’t need to replicate other leaders or buy the best-selling business book du jour.

Instead, enter a “fundamental state of leadership,” in which you instinctively know what to do, and you’ll perform at your best.

How? Prep yourself before every crucial conversation, decision or meeting by asking yourself these four questions:
  1. What result do I want to create?

  2. What are my core values, and is my behavior aligned with them?

  3. Have I committed to the collective good in my organization?

  4. What signals am I seeing that suggest the need for change?
—Adapted from “Moments of Greatness: Entering the Fundamental State of Leadership,” Robert E. Quinn, Harvard Business Review.
