After 10 years of flying supersonic fighter jets in the United States Air Force, Danny Cox joined one of the nation’s largest sales companies. A year later, he was promoted to sales manager and guided his office in its industry-leading, record-breaking pace of doubling, tripling and quadrupling old records.
Four years after joining the corporation, Danny was promoted to First Vice President and assigned a district of eight offices and a staff of over 140. His salespeople increased production 800% in a five-and-a-half-year period – and that included two recession years. Morale and productivity soared, and percentage of employee turnover dropped to near zero.
The point? Danny Cox knows something about “Leadership When the Heat’s On.” There is never a greater need for innovative leadership and teamwork than in challenging economic conditions as we face right now. Here are a few leadership maxims from Danny’s “Leader’s Dozen” to help today’s leaders:
- The ultimate reward for the leader of people is to be able to say at the end of the day, “I saw someone grow today and I helped.”
- To achieve great things, know more than the average manager considers necessary.
- An organization quits improving right after the manager does.
- Help a team member grow and you receive respect in return.
- On a scale of 1-10, team morale and customer service receive the same score.
- Be aware of a team member’s weaknesses but talk to his or her strengths.
