  • OCOB - Lessons in Leadership
    look up to as a leader I am attracted to leaders who inspire others those who are authentic service oriented and committed to making the world a better place Some leaders I admire include Seth Godin Tony Hsieh and Oprah Winfrey What characteristics do you look for when building your team The most important thing I ve learned about building a team is that everyone has to bring a great attitude and want to be a part of something bigger than themselves It only takes one negative person to throw off the balance and detract others from building a great company SMILE is our acronym that exemplifies our values of the people who thrive on our team It stands for Service mindset Meaningful relationships Inspire others Lifelong learner Embrace change What s been the hardest lesson you ve had to learn Patience What comes easy for me is seeing the vision of what I want to create The hard part is building the right team to overcome the obstacles as we strive for the vision Patience to me means understanding that it s not about achieving the vision but about the journey in pursuit of the vision What s the most important question you ask in an interview Why do you want to work for our company I need to know what someone s real motivation is Have you had to reinvent yourself in your career Yes I had to reinvent myself when I transitioned from being an executive at Microsoft to an independent consultant and then again to CEO when I decided to grow my business Becoming the CEO of Simplicity has represented that a need in the marketplace for our services I am highly motivated by adding value to our clients and consultants and our growth is directly proportional to the level of value that we deliver I ve always said that Simplicity grows one conversation at a time and by helping people realize their definition of success Has there been a time you ve just had to go with your gut Absolutely As the business was growing very quickly I would hire people based on my gut I have learned that especially in hiring that first gut instinct when you meet someone is usually right and to trust it When I would hire someone who wasn t a good fit I observed that I would have talked myself into it and overthought it If it s seems too hard then it s not right How do you measure your own success By how many people s lives I positively impact I live by a quote from Zig Ziglar who said You can have everything you want if you help enough other people get what they want I love helping people get what they want In my business it s about building meaningful high impact jobs for professionals for my clients it s about helping them build the right team to grow their business What advice can you
