Organizations That THINK WELL, DO WELL! with Mike Myatt

Widely regarded as America’s Top CEO Coach, Mike Myatt is a leadership advisor to Fortune 500 CEOs and their Boards of Directors.

He is the bestselling author of Hacking Leadership (Wiley) and Leadership Matters… (OP), a Forbes leadership columnist, is a member of the board of directors at the Gordian Institute and is the Founder and Chairman at N2Growth.

Mr. Myatt is recognized as one of the world’s best-known authorities on leadership. At the 2013 Thinkers50 Awards sponsored by Harvard Business Review, he was recognized as one of the top 10 leadership thinkers globally. Trust Across America selected him as one of the Top 100 Most Trustworthy Business Thought Leaders, and Inc. Magazine recognized him as one of the top 50 leadership and management experts in the world.

Perhaps best known for his groundbreaking leadership insights and his ability to cut through static thinking, Myatt is recognized for coining the phrase “Next Practices” when people were just beginning to talk about best practices.

Today I talk to Mike about the meaning behind, “but for the people”. The results of going to the next level will be directly related to how you deal with your people. 

Key Leadership Takeaways:

  • We find ourselves amidst the challenges of living and working in a triple-threat world of a global pandemic, economic instability, and political unrest. The CHRO job just got more interesting, and so did this year’s list.
    • CHROs are making a bigger and more meaningful difference than ever. Whether leading an emerging growth company or a large multi-national corporation, aside from the CEO, there is arguably no position that has impact and contribution like the CHRO.
  • Be a person of action, stay passionately convicted to your vision, make sure that your motivations and decisions are based upon a deeply rooted sense of character and integrity in both your personal and professional conduct, and be willing to take great risks in order to ensure that your vision becomes a reality.
  • Great leaders don’t fear failure, rather they fear the loss of what could have been achieved had they not had the courage to press on.
