Catalyst Session #2

What separates the exceptional from the good?

Jim Collins, noted business author (Built to Last, Good to Great) asked this question of the 12,000+ leaders at Catalyst. The simple answer: a culture of discipline.

Other tidbits:
Your "to do" list needs to be balanced by a "stop doing" list
Every generation of leaders needs to develop practices that passionately exhibit their values
Be useful
If you need to manage someone tightly you probably made a hiring mistake
Humility is a signature of successful leaders
