Leadership Question #1: Who Has Impacted Your Leadership the Most? | Michael Hyatt

“Can you name a person who has had a tremendous impact on you as a leader? Maybe someone who has been a mentor to you? Why and how did this person impact your life?” Here’s my answer.

Leadership Question #2: What Are the Most Important Leadership Decisions | Michael Hyatt

As leaders, you and I are called upon to make hundreds if not thousands of decisions over the course of a year. A few are monumental. Some are consequential. Most are trivial. However, I would boil down the most important decisions I make into three categories

Leadership Question #3: How Can You Keep Inspiration Alive? | Michael Hyatt

We’ve all experienced it: the large bureaucracy where where the employees seem to be just punching the clock. However, this happens in the private sector as well. In fact, it happens any time people get disconnected from the their purpose.

Leadership Question #4: How Do You Encourage Creative Thinking? | Michael Hyatt

The bigger and more successful you become, the easier it is to rest on your creative laurels. This is one of the things I have really admired about Apple. They keep pushing the envelope.

Leadership Question #8: How Do You Encourage Others to Communicate Your Core Values? | Michael Hyatt

In my answer to Michael’s previous question, I emphasized the formal ways in which we communicate our values at Thomas Nelson. I talked about hiring practices, new employee orientation, rewards and recognition, and annual reviews. All of these are important, but, as I suggested at the end of the post, they are probably not the most important.
