If you were ‘charged’ with being a profitable leader, is there enough evidence to convict you?

Does leadership matter? Without great leaders, nothing will survive. Alexander the Great is credited with proclaiming, “I’m not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.”

“For 37 years, I’ve been a president and chief operating officer, turnaround expert, business consultant, leadership and profit speaker, trainer, author and columnist. My expertise is developing Eagle (lion) leaders in the noble pursuit of profits. If your looking to develop profitable leaders, please contact me at or 513.236.5001 for a free consultation.” – Tom Wurtz

Why Great Managers Don’t Manage

eagle100Wouldn’t it be great if you could be a manager and didn’t need to manage people? How many hours in a day do you waste dealing with Duck employees and general managing issues? Companies would save a small fortune and Eagle employees could be paid what they are really worth. I find the majority of Eagle employees are paid at least 20% less than their true value. It can be done if you master a few skills.

So how do Eagle leaders eliminate the unproductive task of managing employees? Great leaders believe in a philosophy I first learned back in 1999 from a book entitled The Gifted Boss by Dale Dauten. It’s one of those parable books and it’s a fun read. Dauten discusses The Six Realities of Gifted Bosses and Great Employees.

I really like Dauten’s reality number one. I call the following mindset, “3M X 2C.” Continue reading
