Good to Great

Key Concepts:

  1. Level 5 Leadership - Level 5 leaders have a mixture of personal humility & strong will. They're incredibly ambitious for the business, not themselves. A level 5 leader motivates with inspiring standards rather than an inspiring personality.

  2. First Who, Then What - Get the right people on the bus in the key seats before deciding where to drive the bus. You can't predict what will happen, so get people who can perform brilliantly no matter the circumstance.

  3. Confront the Brutal Facts - Stockdale Paradox: You must maintain an unwavering faith that you can & will prevail regardless of the difficulties, & at the same time, have the discipline to confront the brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.

  4. The Hedgehog Concept - A simple concept that comes from the intersection of 3 circles; What are you deeply passionate about, what you can be the best in the world at, and what drives your economic or resource engine?

  5. The Flywheel - The process from good to great resembles relentlessly pushing a giant heavy flywheel, turn upon turn, building momentum until a point of breakthrough, & beyond.

  6. Culture of Discipline - Disciplined people who engage in disciplined thought & take disciplined action - operating with freedom within a framework of responsibilities - result in superior performance.
