Or are you only rewarding the victorious?

If your focus is on building more than a high performing team but, instead, an innovative, self-correcting team,™ one that can function without you, then kudos must be distributed to those who go first, to those who don’t meet the high bar of initial success but who ventured forth.

Because it is those who strive and don’t meet the target that lay the foundation for those who do.


For more on rewarding those who go first in your organization, you can read about that and other innovative leadership practices in the leadership narratives featured in my new book, Magnificent Leadership.   Among them, Brad Wilson, CEO Emeritus of Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina; Carolyn Colvin, Former Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration; Dan Michelson, CEO of Strata Decision Technology.  Go here to Amazon to get your copy.

My next openings for working with me directly are in mid-July.  My clients are CEOs and Fortune 1000 senior executives who are successful, talented, ambitious, and have the desire to be magnificent.  And if you’re preparing for an elevated leadership role or have just landed in one, I work with leaders just like you.  To schedule a mutually exploratory conversation: sarah@sarah-levitt.com
