On this episode of the active CEO Podcast, Craig Johns speaks with Ron Carucci about Rising To Power With Influence, organisational honesty, navigating the bonds of transformation with Navalent, and how can leaders say no more than they say yes?

We also delve into why Ron considers Satya Nadella (Microsoft), Hubert Joly (Best Buy) and Andy Stanley (Patagonia) exemplary leaders; why many leaders fear disappointing people; and the four recurring patterns of what set leaders apart.

Ron Carucci – Rising To Power With Influence

He is a dad of 2 amazing kids, who is passionate about leaving the world better than he found it and helping people on the journey of “Rising To Power”.

He studied communications at New York University and has a thirty-five plus year track record helping some of the world’s most influential executives tackle challenges of strategy, organization and leadership. His career has focused on roles in leadership, organisation development, culture change and capability at companies such as PepsiCo, New York Power Authority, ADP and was a Partner for Mercer Delta Consulting Group.

Since 2004 he is the owner and managing partner of Navalent working with CEOs and executives pursuing transformational change for their organizations, leaders, and industries. His 2017 TEDx Talk on Power delved into the exertion of our will on others, where power comes from and who gets to use it, and explored the mysterious force of human nature and how it can be used to create a more connected and compassionate community.

Ron talks about:

  • Engaging people in their story was fascinating to me.
  • 3 key characteristics in leadership – reluctance, their who and desire to serve.
  • Why it’s important to get better you need to understand the gaps.
  • I desire to influence the influencers.

  • What are the 3-4 things that differentiate us that we need to be world class?
  • Rising To Power With Influence.
  • Many leaders fear disappointing people.
  • Leadership is the ability to disappoint people at a rate they can absorb you.
  • People will like you for saying yes, but will respect you for saying no.
  • Keeping people in their lane is the success of a leader.
  • Courageous leader will step back and engage own leaders in the design.
  • Scaffolding approach to strategic leadership in a healthy manner.
  • Needing a team of people around you who can hold you up.
  • You cant be true to yourself before you understand the truth about yourself.
  • Why are we so committed to our polarization?

Influence Collaborative Leadership

How to provide a collaborative LEADERSHIP style through consistent influence & direction.

What is collaborative leadership? It is all about how people interact across functional and organizational boundaries.

It requires cognitive diversity as collaborative leadership will not be successful if you are collaborating with a team of individuals that think the same, have similar backgrounds and experience, or even occupy the same hierarchical positions.

Collaborative leadership is a powerful way to inspire creativity and innovation, which requires divergent thinking and conversations.

Trust, reliability, integrity and honesty is so important for collaborative teams as it isn’t just about people working together.

It is important to create a psychological safe space were people feel secure, valued and trusted.

As a leader your role is a connector who has the ability to link people, divergent ideas and resources that wouldn’t normally converge with one another. Connectors are critical to collaboration.

To be a collaborative leader, there are 7 qualities to be prepared for:

  1. take risks
  2. be an active listener
  3. show passion for what you do
  4. have an optimistic mindset
  5. simplify for your people
  6. actively manage tension and strong personalities
  7. have the confidence to share credit
