Consider the following for your Leadership Style:

  • Being visionary while still paying attention to the smallest of details
  • Having a willingness to sacrifice short-term outcomes for long-lasting results
  • Being willing to pitch in and help get a job done, regardless of how menial the task
  • Possessing an unrelenting work ethic—especially when focused on a difficult challenge—and a commitment to anyone or any task, always going all-in
  • Setting high expectations for themselves and those working with them
  • Being 100 percent authentic and not forgetting where they came from
  • Always following through on commitments
