Episode 45 - Badass Leadership - A Life of Distinction

April 16, 2018
As leaders, it is enough to instruct, motivate or even inspire people to meet a list of yearly targets?  Or is there a different kind of leader?  Someone who breaks through what was previously considered possible?



  • I frequently talk about elite leadership; the idea that there is a special kind of leader, called to make a remarkable difference in their teams, organizations and communities

  • A life of distinction implies you are constantly looking to break the 4-minute mile; to do the impossible; the things everyone says can’t be done.  To change the world forever.

  • Strive to raise the bar, to disrupt the status quo.

  • Being a leader of distinction requires tremendous strength and the ability to weather the constant fight.  Adopt agile mindsets and habits, and apply them to your daily life.

  • Similarly, seek to break habits that keep you bound to the status quo.  Challenge conventional thinking and routines.

  • Teach your teams to examine their habits too, and to break 1 new bad one and integrate one new good one each month.
