  • Six Flips:
    1) Mindset
    2) Skills - particularly in the areas of Communication and Influence
    3) Relationships (BIGGEST IMPACT - DO THIS NOW)
          - have a proactive conversation with all new Peer to Boss relationships, do not leave this unspoken with former 'best friends' you are now managing
         - focus on Direction, Alignment and Commitment
    (Suzie Mentioned the Dashboard tool, here are two tools for understanding:
    Podcast #20 - Setting Performance Expectations the Easy Way w/ a Dashboard
    and a video demonstration of the Dashboard Process - Three Easy Steps )
    4) Do It All Attitude - learn to delegate, develop, mentor
    5) Perspective - dealing with politics, broaden your focus, your network matters
    6) Focus - character strength (CAN BE MOST CHALLENGING)
         - there's a lot more grey area as a leader
         - values alignment - get clear and let others know, use to guide decisions
         - In senior roles - integrity means the most to their success;  if you are not gauging this in younger leaders - you could be promoting lower integrity people into senior leadership roles.
