Strategy, Execution, Sustained Success

The Art of Rōnin Leadership is about the path you take to become a leader—an entirely different way of thinking than merely fixing what is not working or doing better at what has always been done.

    Letting People Go; Your Most IMPORTANT Leadership Decision.

    Letting People Go; Your Most IMPORTANT Leadership Decision.

    There is a lot of literature about the importance of hiring the right people for your organization, but I have noticed there is less conversation about letting people go. It is unfortunate because the most important decision we make as leaders is not when to hire someone but rather when to fire someone. 

    A leader's role is to protect the organization's viability and culture, which means sometimes letting people go who don't fit in.   

    Let's dive in and discuss one of the most complex decisions that a leader might face.

    Failure Is not an option

    Failure Is not an option

    What does it mean when certain people say failure is not an option? What does it mean to fail? The people who truly understand this statement don’t believe they won’t fail or can’t happen. In fact, not only do they fully realize that failure is very much an option, they understand it’s inevitable. 

    That idea conveys that you should not stop at the first encounter of hardship. Failure is not an option because it’s not a stopping point. Instead, failure is a point which you can continue from and, more importantly, a place that can speed up the learning process on your path to success.  Let's dive in and discuss it further.

    Leaders Are Readers

    Leaders Are Readers

    It was Harry S. Truman who said, “Not All Readers Are Leaders, But All Leaders Are Readers.” Top business leaders often quote President Truman’s philosophy as one of their keys to success.   

    Reading will open new opportunities for professional success. It’s the best and most efficient way to acquire and assimilate information. Reading can improve intelligence, increase vocabulary, increase communication skills, and improve a leader’s ability to work with and understand others.
