Choosing the Right Team: Your Business Pit Crew
A new champ was crowned yesterday at the 96th running of the Indianapolis 500.
Near-record heat and turbo-charged competition electrified the racetrack crowd.
Today’s leaders are battling equally daunting elements: a tough playing field with gritty competitors. And just like an Indy 500 winner, you need money, skill, stamina and guts to get to the finish line.
You also need a team. How’s your pit crew?
It’s never been more difficult to be a leader. Your decisions matter more than ever.
Are you getting the advice you need to be successful? Are your answers being questioned? Some people tell you what you want to hear. A #Vistage advisory board of non-competing peers tells you what you need to hear. Are you choosing the right team to support you?
Stop driving in circles. Head to the checkered flag.
To dive even deeper into the topic of accountability, I invite you to purchase a copy of my bestselling book, “Accountability: The Key to Driving a High-Performance Culture.”
Business schools teach case studies. Hollywood blockbusters are inspired by true events.
Exceptional leaders are students of history. Decision-making comes with the territory.
