A Tribute: Leadership Lessons From Dad
In this episode of the Peak Performance Selling podcast, Jordan shares a few lessons he learned from his father about good leadership. The lessons that Jordan focuses on are not directly related to revenue. Instead, they focus on treating employees and subordinates with respect, living with an attitude of gratitude, and creating a work environment that makes people want to stay for the long haul.
- Treat every person with dignity, compassion, kindness, and grace
- It's always better to assume positive intent
- Live with an attitude of gratitude
- Celebrate the small wins
- Maintain a childlike passion for ambition
- Make it a habit to congratulate someone for a job well done
- Jordan: "Regardless of who they are, or why we should or shouldn't be kind, what they can do for us, how do we treat these people with kindness, with dignity, with compassion, and give them grace with every interaction? It's not hard."
- Jordan: "I've found it so easy over the years to assume the negatives. And it usually doesn't do me very much good. Especially then when I just pick up the phone and talk to somebody versus what I may assume over slack or over email. In this digitally disconnected world, assuming positive intent can help us find more solutions, better, more easily, more effectively."
- Jordan: The most successful in the world, the sense of appreciation for everything that they have right now, and this concept that there's so much more out there, there's so for all of us to go around, so many of us feel entitled that tomorrow is going to come and we should just slog or grind through the day."
