Leaders Eat Last
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
The book explores what it takes to become an excellent leader. At its core, exceptional leaders take care of their team first and create an environment that feels safe and supportive.
1. Your most important job as a leader is to protect your team. Only when people have a sense of safety and see no internal threats, can go and successfully tackle external threats.
2. You need to see your employees as people, not as commodities. Relationships are just as important as skills and individual performance.
3. In strong organizations, people break the rules for the sake of the organization, while in weak organizations people break the rules for their own personal gains.
