Lead by design, not by default.
A CEO who leads by design is conscious and intentional about the choices he makes. He leads with a confidence and a clarity that both calms and energizes his team. The calendar drives the default leader as he goes from meeting to meeting, reacting to the urgencies of the day.
Know what you believe.
CEOs who lead from their beliefs show up as passionate and inspired and attract people who believe that they believe. Shared beliefs form the basis of an aligned organization that is clear about its purpose, its vision and the value it provides.
