When Leadership Doesn’t Matter

Leadership doesn’t matter if…

  • You don’t need to innovate
  • No one competes with your group
  • Everything is automated
  • There is no turnover in staff
  • Everyone knows what your company does

Congrats to those of you who don’t need leadership in your organization.

That’s really neat.

Organizations that don’t value leadership won’t be here in a couple years to need it.  Interesting how that works…

For the rest of us, it’s time to innovate, strategize, recruit, and envision.

Nevertheless, I’m continually surprised by how many managers don’t lead, how many companies cut down their leadership ranks to save money, and how many leaders don’t bother to lead themselves higher first.

Difficult times call for stronger leaders.  We need you tonight.

Have a leadership night,

Aaron@Biebert

Love What Hurts

It’s common to hear mentors advise young people to do what they love. I’ve offered that advice myself many times.

However, I wonder if it’s become an excuse for some who confuse “doing what they love” with avoiding things they don’t love.

  • Rejection is painful
  • No one loves working long hours while others play
  • Failure hurts

The best way to successfully do what you love is to work while others play, get rejected numerous times, and fail forward and faster than others in your field.  In a world of unlimited competition, the winners will be separated by mere inches, their level of passion, and the bravery to do what hurts.

Doing what hurts is the key to doing what you love.

Have a great night,

Aaron@Biebert
