Here are the highlights of this episode:
For speaking engagement, he works with anyone in the Fortune500 down to small business. But in consulting, they dealt with companies in the 10-200 million USD range. The problem he helps are those CEOs who want to achieve the vision that they have but his team is not on the same page with him. He says that you need to get everyone on the same page, hear them out, and come to a vision that everybody agrees on. The problem Ron sees are two things: number one is they don't delegate effectively, and number two is they don't coach. And if they coach the people reporting to them, you will have far exceeding organization, a lot of trust, and will have high morale. The biggest mistake people make in leadership roles is that the task is not purpose-oriented. He says most of us think of the word velocity only as 'speed' but the physics definition of velocity is 'speed with direction', that's why having a vision is important. Because once you got that right, it drives all the actions you should be concentrating on.
Ron’s Valuable Free Action (VFA):
Many people think about the 'right' vision; they look at their experience in the past and then bring that into the vision and all that does is hold them back. Start with a clean piece of paper; "where do you really want to be that will give you the passion to do what it takes?" but don't align your past experiences because the fear, stories, assumptions - most of it are not true will cloud the vision and therefore you won't be shooting as far as you can be shooting for.
“The real asset or value of a CEO and executives is coaching the people that report to them to be more successful than they ever thought was possible" – Ron Karr
