There are two questions every leader must answer strategically and completely.

  1. How do you know you're doing a great job as a leader?
  2. Where should you focus your energy day-to-day as a leader?

Most leaders can't answer these questions.

They have gaps and blind spots that keep them from reaching their potential.

These leaders often find themselves:

  • Pulled in 1,000 directions because they don't understand the whole job or its boundaries.
  • Jumping from one problem to the next and making decisions below their pay grade.
  • Unable to motivate employees or inspire engagement.
  • Struggling to get out of the weeds or zooming out to be strategic.
  • Unpromotable because nobody on the team can replace them.
  • Spending time on leadership training that isn't actionable.

When members of a leadership team answer these questions differently, the team often finds itself:

  • Dealing with silos, turf wars, or an "us versus them" mentality.
  • Working toward different goals or with conflicting standards.
  • Hampered by low trust and poor collaboration between leaders and departments.
  • Struggling with communication issues.
  • Lacking alignment around a consistent vision.

This lesson gives you a tool to fix these problems. Forever.

It answers these two questions and will help you and your team:

  1. Understand All Facets of Leadership. You'll learn about all the nooks and crannies of leadership. This means you can be more confident in the role and stop wondering if you have blind spots or areas to improve.
  2. Measure Your Progress and Success. You'll know how to quickly measure your effectiveness as a leader. This means you'll be more agile and can adapt as the demands of your team and role change.
  3. Find High-Value Topics to Study. Discover which topics will be actionable for you right now. This means you'll spend your learning time more wisely and will reach your potential faster.
  4. Work From the Same Playbook with Your Team of Leaders. With a shared scorecard and playbook, your team of leaders will be working towards the same goals in complementary ways. This means your leadership team will be more effective, and there will be less confusion in your organization.

Stop chasing skills until you can measure success.

Most people already have the skills needed to be influential leaders.

What they lack is awareness of the goals and activities of leadership.

This actionable lesson fixes this problem with a forever tool you'll use for the rest of your career.
