The 5 Core Values That All Great Leaders Have

Guest Post by Shawn Vij

The leaders of all organizations have a number of things in common. They set the tone for the entire company, determine what it stands for and make sure the business stays on course. But the best of the best go farther. They’re strong, authentic, admirable leaders with deep core values — and they walk the talk. One recent example is Starbuck’s Executive Chairman Howard Schultz, who wrote a searing Op-Ed in The Financial Times, arguing that leaders have a moral obligation to see themselves as part of the bigger picture. His was one of the clearest voices in business to condemn the divisive attacks in Charlottesville.

Having strong core values and making sure one’s actions and one’s business aligns with them has a profoundly healthy and positive influence on an organization. There are five key values that outstanding leaders share, regardless of industry or company size. Follow them, and you’ll become a leader who makes headlines — for the right reasons.

ML42 – Perseverance of a Navy Seal Lessons by Jesse Itzler

What is perseverance?

Hitting a plateau or finding yourself in a rut can be challenging. With work, family, social and recreation demands pulling us in different directions we can find ourselves burned out. When you feel overwhelm coming on and you fight the desire to put it on autopilot, how do you get yourself out of the rut? For Jesse Itzler, former MTV VJ, rapper, successful jet rental leader and husband to the youngest female self-made billionaire, Sara Blakely, found himself floating to autopilot, he went extreme. Intentionally creating an experience that would test his commitment, his drive, his resiliency and his sanity, he hired a Navy Seal to live with him for 31 days and put him through the most grueling, physically and mentally demanding “workout” of his life.
