The Linchpin to Your Company’s Success
Today’s show crackles with energy from the very first minute because my guest, our own Leaguer Irene Becker, is such an Extraordinary Thinker. Here are just a few examples:
Says Irene about being the first female CEO of a near-bankrupt steel company in Canada: “I was a round blonde woman. Wrong look, wrong sex. I’ve always been one to buck trends. I made it work. We turned it around and got into the black quickly.”
“What do I do working with a company that’s in the red? We need a thoughtful, human approach, but we need things that work fast.”
“A lot of theories sit on the shelf. Theories that sit on the shelf are not going to help anybody actualize their potential.”
3Q Edge – IQ, EQ, and SQ working together are what make us a leader.
- IQ – Strategic thought. The ability to learn and relearn under pressure.
- EQ – Emotional intelligence.
- SQ – Spirit in the sense of purpose, values, integrity: leadership at its core.
“The lynchpin to success is to take a stressor and use it to build your ability to learn and relearn faster. The learn/relearn piece is huge.”
“If your CEO doesn’t get employee engagement, you’re heading toward Jurassic Park!”
This is barely the beginning of our fascinating talk! Wait until Irene tells you about her REACH methodology! And just wait until she goes off about her favorite tag line, ‘Leading at the speed of change.’ This is one episode of Switch and Shift that you can’t afford to miss!
