I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do!

Leonardo da Vinci

I heard a talk on qualities of a good leader by Ajay Banga, CEO Mastercard and what stood out was how you by applying decency to 3 qualities of a leader can be a difference between a good leader and one who is capable of changing things for the better.

Urgency, Curiosity, Competitiveness paired with decency can be:

  • Thoughtful Urgency = Quick action informed by listening
  • Focused Curiosity, deep desire to understand guided by Purpose
  • Competitive Paranoia = ability to expect the unexpected, driven to understand your customers then you are able to see things from miles away

So today, I am committing to:

  1. Having Urgency & pairing with listening to have a plan of action on what is important to act on
  2. To focus the Curiosity on what I have chosen as my purpose
  3. To have competitiveness that is driven to first understand and then offer solutions that will help others
