On the topic of Leadership
Posted: October 01, 2018
My earlier years grinding it out feeling like a “slave to the corporate world” coupled with my seemingly endless quest for knowledge and personal improvement. I find it the topic of Leadership is easily one of the most overcrowded spaces on the continent yet new and recycled principles continue to emerge. In my time I have studied the modern-day pioneers such as Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, Earle Nightingale as well as the top leaders of business today, Simon Sinek, Angela Duckworth, Tony Robbins and Carol Dweck. In my recent re-reading of EntreLeadership, by Dave Ramsey, a book I read multiple times per year and reference often, a particular excerpt struck me as if I hadn’t read it all the other times before. Upon walking up to a company BBQ, Dave and his son noticed there were about 100 kids of whom were the children of those employed by Ramsey Solutions. Dave’s son who was younger at the time was embarrassed by the number of young kids then and asked his dad how long he would be required to stay.
