WC – Leadership Summit – Session 6 – Colin Powell


This is the one of the best sessions so far… Colin Powell brought a great perspective to leadership… He talked about his Powell Principle’s…

Here’s what I got:

Leadership is action oriented.

Leaders solve problems.

Promote a clash of ideas.

Create a noisy system.

Only people get things done.

Maintain an open door policy.

Probe the organization.

Reward your best performers, get rid of bad performers.

Be prepared to disappoint people.

Check your EGO at the DOOR.

Have fun in your command.

Fit no stereotypes.

Perpetual optisism is a multiplier.

Things always look better in the morning.

Avoid war if it all possible.

Trust the element of instinct.

Prepare to be lonely.

CLOSING THOUGHT BY COLIN: All of us have a debt of service.

I thought this session was really good… I have some thoughts on the next session I will post them later…
