Takeaway #188: the effective CEO via #krsone #bdp

Who gets weaker? The king or the teacher

It’s not about a salary it’s all about reality

Teachers teach and do the world good

kings just rule and most are never understood

If you were to rule or govern a certain industry

All inside this room right now would be in misery

No one would get along nor sing a song

’cause everyone’d be singing for the king, am I wrong?!

Takeaway #188:  Which is the more effective manager or CEO, one that brings out the most in his/her team or the one that is followed?  Do you want yes-men leading you down your self-designed path of self-destruction or do you want a smooth running machine with sum of parts greater than the individual pistons?  Teach your team, don’t rule your team.

In person meeting + interaction day…

If you never went, It’s good time spent

I’ll bet ya come out with a new tactic

Takeaway #174:   Although original reference is made to the school of Mecca in Harlem, it applies to any meeting.  Get away from your desk and visit your colleague, boss, mentor today.  You will have a takeaway that you did not have before the meeting, new knowledge for the tool kit – and, yes, perhaps new tactics.
