Leaders Are Great By Choice

Morten Hansen, Management Professor at UC Berkley, discusses his work with Jim Collins on leadership by choice. Visionaries are not the winners that you'd think them to be. Being lucky as it turns out is about equal to being unlucky. Great leaders prepare for good and bad luck events by being prepared for them, recognizing and seizing the moment, and then executing brilliantly. The three common traits of exceptional leaders who are Great By Choice are: Productive Paranoia •Being obsessive in preparation to deal with potential threats. Fanatical Discipline •Being committed to objectives at all costs. Empirical Creativity •Creative risks are calculated, well-thought-out risks.
