You Gotta Want It

I talked to an expert in executive education and organizational learning this morning; her depth of knowledge was impressive - her respect and love for people was extraordinary.  She said something to me that is worth repeating.  As we discussed a CEO she admired she said:

"He is an extraordinary person.  He really wants to be a good leader.  He works so hard at improving himself that he is constantly in a state of transformation." 

It is not surprising that his organization has been recognized for its progressive culture, community involvement, and business leadership.  If the CEO is evolving - the company has a chance to evolve.  This is the best kind of leadership by example.

  1. Being a leader sounds really cool. But it's not necessarily easy. The CEO she mentioned really has a good sense of excellence. He believes that he is under a constant process of transformation. That thought drives him to improve on areas where he is lacking.
