We are thrilled to have Dave on the podcast this week for a lively conversation about leadership. His insights about leadership transitions, running a family business, and organizational culture are practical and helpful.
“Success is standing on your pile of mistakes rather than lying under them.”
“We outwork most people. We’re not necessarily smarter than they are.”
“We don’t watch much TV; we read.”
“Fiction makes airplanes fly faster.”
“The average millionaire can’t tell you who got thrown off the island, who can’t dance, and who can’t get a date.”
“If you’re not a learner you’ve got a short shelf life.”
“It’s not hard to delegate if you trust someone’s competency and their integrity.”
“Transformation occurs when you have the overlap of knowledge, experience, and coaching.”
“People are your greatest blessing and your greatest curse.”
“In business and in leadership you have to believe way down deep in your soul that people matter. If you don’t believe that you become transactional rather than relational.”
“Transactional is selfish. Relational is selfless.”
