What do you think the biggest problem facing leaders today is? Sanjog Aul, host of CIO Talk Radio, asked me that question during an off-air discussion.
The answer is that leaders need to find ways that they deliver value to their stakeholders.
So consider this word equation as a value proposition: Intention + Diligence + Attentiveness = Leadership Value
Intention is what you plan to do.
Diligence is what you do to carry it out.
Attentiveness is the vigilance you apply to process and more importantly to people.
A leader’s value proposition is ever-changing, and as a result a leader must question himself to ensure that he is delivering what he is supposed to be doing. Everyday.
