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!
