Today we are talking about the 6 Principles to be a world class leader.

What separates the good leaders from the great? From the great leaders to the world class leaders?

This episode will explore my 6 principles that will allow you to be a world class leader.

First you need to effectively lead yourself, then you are in a position to lead other people. Refer back to the first 3 phases of Breaking The CEO Code – Foundation, Performance & Influence for ways to lead yourself effectively. Secondly you need to be prepared to leading where everything is not about you!

To be a world-class leader you need to develop 6 leadership principles.

  1. PURPOSE Create A Ripple Effect
  2. PEOPLE Serve People Who Matter
  3. PERFORMANCE Productivity Starts With Happiness
  4. PERSONALITY Unlock Your Limiting Beliefs
  5. PASSION Influence From The Heart
  6. PIONEER Life Is An Experiment

We introduce each principle in this active CEO Podcast episode and then will take a deep dive into each principle over the next 6 episodes.

PURPOSE Create A Ripple Effect – We dive into your own personal WHY, mission, vision and values. The most successful leaders have absolute clarity on their vision.

PEOPLE Serve People Who Matter – People are our greatest assets so it is important that you serve those who matter, through a coaching leadership approach where you create a growth and learning environment.

PERFORMANCE Productivity Starts With Happiness – Enjoyment is the greatest recruitment and retention tool in the world. Productivity and performance increases when people feel happy and enjoy what they do.

PERSONALITY Unlock Your Limiting Beliefs – people have subconscious beliefs that hold them back from achieving their potential. Lets unlock your personality and mindset so you can lead effectively.

PASSION Influence From The Heart – be the calming influence and emotional epicenter for the people you work with. When it comes from your heart you are genuinely authentic in the way you lead.

PIONEER Life Is An Experiment – Foster innovation and creativity through creating a learning environment where mistakes and failures are considered experiments and opportunities to grow and evolve.
