How are you doing as a leader?

Take this short quiz  (courtesy of the speakers at the Fortune Leadership Summit in Orlando a week ago) and see!

If you answer yes to all five questions – congratulations and good job!  And if you’re falling short in one or two areas, check out the accompanying resources to get you back on course!

#1 Do you have a clear sense of purpose? – “Human beings are a mission-specific species.  Without purpose, chaos reigns.”  Get your purpose right and it becomes the epicenter of your life – and the lives of those around you.  Jim Loehr, The Power of Full Engagement with nods to Stephen Covey.  🙂


#2 Do you regularly take time for renewal and reflection? – “In what areas of your life do you need to ‘hit the reset button’?”  Consider your relationship with yourself, your family, your friends and your Creator. Giovanni Livera, Live a Thousand Years


#3 Do you pay attention to your culture? – “Act your way to new thinking.”  The main job of a leader is to stay on message and just keep repeating. You have a culture – and you’re the chief ‘culture-creator’. Dave Marquet, Turn the Ship Around


#4 Do you actively engage your people? – “People work harder and more effectively when their work affords them the opportunity to learn AND help others.”  Check out to see how you stack up!  Laurie Bassi, Good Company: Business Success in the Worthiness Era

#5 Do you have a plan to train and develop your most important asset?
– “Know and teach the rules.  Follow the action and keep score.  Provide a stake in the outcome.”  Enough said.  For more on creating a stake in the outcome, check out a business classic, ‘The Great Game of Business’ by Jack Stack.  Truly a business icon!

So how did you do?
