I am writing this having just returned to my hotel room after spending the day at the excellent Procurious Big Idea Summit here in Chicago. With the last keynote of the day from former U.S Navy SEAL Andy Stumpf still at the front of my mind, I wanted to share as this week’s “Must Read” a post that summarizes a number of his perspectives on leadership.
There was one thing above all that Andy said that really resonated with me – leadership doesn’t require a title. Wherever we are in our organization, it is our responsibility to stand up, lead, and be accountable to ourselves and those around us.
Check out this week’s must read for Andy’s words of advice on leadership, planning and the perils of ego:
