I've seen them in every organization I've worked. You have too. Leaders who have been around a long time, or not so long, but appear to accomplish next to nothing. Sure, they come in each day, and plod to and from the standing meetings with their standing agendas that pass as regularly as the seasons.
What do these people stand for? Anything? Beyond the standard corporate line of "being committed" and "willing to do whatever is necessary" I'm not seeing any tangible end result. Are you?
These people have a zero signature.
The Other Zero
I've seen them in every organization I've worked. You have too. Leaders who have been around a long time, or not so long, but appear to accomplish so much without leaving a trail of destruction in their path.
They hit all of the meetings just like I do, but they end up being so productive that you can't tell the systems and processes have been touched, but suddenly they're working so much better.
They just work so well. How do they do it?
These people have a zero signature too.
How About You
Think about your own leadership practice. What is the quality of the work you produce? Can anybody tell? Which zero signature do you leave?
I'd love to hear from you.
