The Leadership Recipe 

The word “recipe” was not used very often in our household, as my family would confirm. I would remind them that Betty Crocker has a team of professionals. How can I compete with them to create the perfect cake? Rather, I enjoyed my free time reading, learning as much as I could about people and business. From these experiences I have developed a recipe for success.   

A Pound of Risk 

Leaders are willing to take risks and are not satisfied with the status quo.     

A Spoonful of Empathy  

Leaders find a way to give back to their community.   

An Ounce of Opportunity  

Leaders are continuous learners.  Be a problem solver.

A Dash of Desire  

Dedicated leaders tend to do the things that no one else wants to do.  

A Tablespoon of Teamwork 

Jim Collins, author of “Good to Great”, emphasized that you can have the right people on the bus, but it is more important to have them in the right seats.   

A Chunk of Commitment  

Leaders are not afraid to burn the midnight oil.  

A Splash of Curiosity 

Leaders are curious and competitive. 

A Smidgen of Confidence  

Let’s face it. Good leaders ooze a little confidence.  Leaders tend to get up early, eat healthy and exercise.  Go ahead. Try it!   

A Pinch of Satisfaction    

Leaders should pause occasionally and enjoy life.   

A Cup of Success  

Leaders should take time to celebrate the hard work of the team.   

Be bold. Create your own recipe!
