As leaders, it is enough to instruct, motivate or even inspire people to meet a list of yearly targets? Or is there a different kind of leader? Someone who breaks through what was previously considered possible? I frequently talk about elite leadership; the idea that there is a special kind of leader, called to make a remarkable difference in their teams, organizations and communities A life of distinction implies you are constantly looking to break the 4-minute mile; to do the impossible; the things everyone says can’t be done. To change the world forever. Strive to raise the bar, to disrupt the status quo. Being a leader of distinction requires tremendous strength and the ability to weather the constant fight. Adopt agile mindsets and habits, and apply them to your daily life. Similarly, seek to break habits that keep you bound to the status quo. Challenge conventional thinking and routines. Teach your teams to examine their habits too, and to break 1 new bad one and integrate one new good one each month.
