Today we present Episode 6 of our popular intrepidNOW series, Leadership on the Ground. I am joined by my co-host Erica Peitler, where we continue our conversation about a new way to approach leadership development. Everything you think you know about leadership, is about to be turned upside down…Discussion Guide from today’s episode:
1. Put simply, a facilitator of progress is a leader who drives performance and productivity.
2. The organizational hurdles to progress? Such as, how a leader is allocating time…
3. Leaders have three resources: people, time, and money.
4. “Green dollars verses blue dollars.” Budgeted dollars vs. budget time…
5. “Being efficient isn’t necessarily the best thing. Getting in and out might too quickly might leave important issues on the table undiscussed.”
6. Being effective is what you should be looking for next, followed by real productivity. “The right behaviors in the room…”
7. How important is process, processes generally designed to solve problems?
8. Setting expectations matters.

12. As leaders, you need to be “change ready.”
