the table of influence

“The right people at the table can change everything for you.”

The Scriptures would say it this way:

“Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.” Proverbs 13:20 MSG

The bottom line is you become who you hang out with. Successful people know this and are intentional about it. Successful people know how to identify the right people to invite to their table, they are open to their instruction, and they are genuinely willing to adapt. This practical eBook will help you:

  1. Explore the need for a table of influence
  2. Learn how to identify people of influence
  3. Discover eleven types of people to invite to your table
  4. Define the terms of engagement
  5. Know what to do with what you learn along the way

Recently I had the opportunity to sit down with Jason Young and discuss his new book, “The Table of Influence: What Successful People Know That You Should Too” Continue reading below to check out the interview:

global leadership summit 2012: jim collins

Jim Collins, researcher and best selling author of the leadership books Built to Last, Good to Great, and How the Mighty Fall, shared a message at the Global Leadership Summit. Here are my notes from his talk:

  • The X-factor of great leadership is humility combined with will
  • Fanatic Discipline: excerpting a sense of control in a world that increasingly seems out of control
  • Discipline keeps you from over extending yourself and getting wiped out by the next big storm
  • The principle of the 20-mile march turns great intentions into productive results: consistent consecutive performance
  • Most leaders fail to fire enough little shots to try new things & they have a propensity to fire big uncalibrated shots that lead to failure
  • More and more innovation without discipline leads to failure
  • Productive Paranoia: leads to preparation and buffers the things you do before times are tough
  • The signature of mediocrity is not unwillingness to change. It is chronic inconsistency.
  • Creativity is natural, discipline is not…
  • What’s rare is the ability to marry creativity and discipline without destroying creativity
  • It is how you manage with discipline in the good times that allows you to be strong when people most need you most
  • The greatest danger is not failure but to succeed and not know why
  • Life is people and time with people you love
  • An organization is not truly great if it can’t be great without you
  • Luck = a specific event that 1. You didn’t cause 2. It has a potential significant consequence 3. It was a surprise
  • Great winners in were research were not “luckier” all of us get these events, its what you do with them when they come
  • Greatness is not a matter of circumstance but a choice
  • A great organization possesses 3 things: 1. A superior performance relative to the mission 2. They make a distinctive impact 3. They achieve lasting endurance beyond any one leader

leadership and the lost art of humility

You’re probably familiar with the work of Jim Collins, researcher, speaker and author of the best selling book Good to Great. You’ll remember the 5-year research project exploring what turns a good company into a great one. You’ll also recall, much to all of our surprise, the findings that every good to great company had one thing in common. Every good to great company was led by what Collins labeled as a Level-5-Leader – that is, leadership marked by two characteristics: steely determination and an attitude of humility.

In this book Humilitas, A Lost Key to Life, Love, and Leadership author John Dickson gets laser focused on one of those two characteristics that seemingly set Level-5-Leaders apart from the pack, humility and its unique relationship to leadership. An area that frankly many “leadership experts” avoid.

This was a great read and one that I would highly recommend to any leader interested in personal growth and development. In fact below are some of my favorite quotes and ideas from the book that had an impact on me:
