Bill Hybels delivered a couple of messages during the two-day conference and one dealt with axioms that he and others have used in their lives to help them to make tough decisions or to steady them during turbulent times. He listed several of his axioms and the axioms of other great leaders.
Here are a few axioms from Colin Powell:
- Check your ego at the door
- Promote a clash of ideas – “Who has a contrary opinion?” – will help you make a better decision
- Reward of your best performers, get rid of non-performers – you cannot tolerate non-performance
I recently received an email with a link to a 3 minute movie that contains some other powerful axioms. Check it out here.
