 Key Learning Points from Chick- Fil-A Leadercast 2013
So we end with Condoleezza Rice.  I am proud to say that I have something in common with Condoleezza, other than a passion for leadership.  We are both Athena International Award Winners.  This award recognizes women for their excellence in business and leadership and their community service.

Here are some of Condoleezza’s Pearls of Wisdom from Leadercast 2013
  1. Recognize the simple things you can do to improve a situation or outcome.  Remember that there is a lot of truth to the cliché that little things make a big difference.
  2. The Key in Complexity is to see the Simplicity. “First things First”.
  3. What is the first thing you need to take care of when solving complex issues?  Yourself!  Schedule It!  Be right with yourself and with God.
  4. Have Integrity.
  5. Be an Optimist.
  6. Motivate people to a common goal that is greater than you are.
  7. Take time to construct your team; meaning surround yourself with people that make you better.
  8. Have confidence in your work.
  9. Take time to reflect and be contemplative.
  10. Look for the common ground and Listen!
  11. Communicate simply.
  12. Explain how you got there.
  13. See the logic of how you got to where you are.
  14. Be a River not a Reservoir.
