Enterprise Commitment with Les McKeown
21st century leaders keep their eye on purpose. They are relentless in guiding their team to align with purpose. Critical to these two tenets of leadership is the belief that the company’s interest are more important than our own.
Perhaps this is a no brainer. Consider, however, the plentiful examples of executives who lost site of this tenet: Lehman Brothers, Wall Street, BP, Citibank, Goldman Sachs, and we can’t forget Enron.
As an act of leadership, what does it look like to place the company’s interest above your own?
Les McKeown, in his book “The Synergist” labels such an act as Enterprise Commitment. Quite simply it’s engaging in work, regardless of preference or leadership style, because it’s what’s needed.
In this short video, Les expands on Enterprise Commitment and the role of the Synergist.
