John Jazwiec gives successful leadership tips along with business insights for a path to CEO success.
In everything you do, help the world by being other people's mentor, seeing potential and giving people confidence when they can't see it in themselves.
Self-awareness is essential to leading and helping others. Be yourself, and let people know that you are aware (right or wrong) of how you are going to be perceived. By getting that out of the way, you can "shape" the landscape of building a trusting relationship.
Be open to a fault. Bet on open communication as opposed to being compartmentalized. Strive toward codifying your "system" at the front end so that everyone understands how you make decisions. And surround yourself with people who are smarter than you are.
Leaders within a company emerge when they are able to run faster and faster over time. Using that landscape and open communication helps push their own ideas to the forefront and consequently self-replaces more conservative leaders.
Successful leadership is about building a "system" with solutions that push the envelope. They must be clean and intuitive. And they must not suffer from an overinvestment in features and functionality versus new product development and old product destruction.
