Why everything you know about leadership may need a revamp!
Are you a leader who is still following leadership principles from decades ago? Believe it or not, having an open door policy or treating the star performer on your team the same as the guy who is always late and never hits his sales targets may not be a good thing — for you, your team, and innovation! The dynamics of our teams have changed, but the leadership rules have not. Thankfully, Kevin Kruse recognized the need for new principles to guide leaders, and today we’re digging right into his insights.
Kevin is the founder of several successful startups, CEO of LEADx (world’s first executive coach built with IBM Watson AI), and the author of the book Great Leaders Have No Rules: Contrarian Principles to Transform Your Team and Business.
Most of the leadership rules we as leaders follow are outdated, antiquated, and sometimes just plain wrong. Kevin shares more about some of the old mindsets that he’s completely turned around, including why you should be crowding your calendar and scheduling every minute of your day, and why you need to close your open door policy and set fixed office hours for your team! He also has some great insights into the importance of understanding your own personality in being a good leader instead of depending on 10 random principles, and how AI can help leaders. Remember: Leadership starts with yourself because you can’t give what you don’t have.
