I had a very interesting lunch this past week with Garry Tabor, a fellow board member who is the President of a distribution company, Heico Distribution Group, LLC. There are several ways to measure the health of a business, but the bottom line is the business needs to meet its ‘numbers’.
TODAY'S FAST- PACED BUSINESS cycle demands a new approach to solving problems and moving forward.
Introduction to Woven Leadership"It's time to start recognizing that leadership comes in all shapes and sizes, demographics and life experiences. Therea€™s just no getting around the simple truth: Solid business leadership is essential for a company to grow to its maximum potential. Ita€™ll help you identify your strengths and opportunities, and give you some insight into what it takes to be great. If you are a leader who wants to learn how to become a person of excellence, or how to hone you excellence skills, this section will give you some tips to start you on your journey.
With the increasingly globalized business world, leaders need to be able to form solid relationships across borders – with both colleagues based abroad, as well as customers and business partners. Executives spend much of their time persuading and being persuaded by others with words rather than figures, expressing sentiments and visions rather than quantitative models. To do this, leaders must have the interpersonal capabilities it requires to build strong working relationships, and cultivate a network of highly trusted colleagues.
With more than 150 000 MBAs being granted in the US alone each year, there is competition for employment at the top companies. In the course of our discussion he made a statement that really resonated with me regarding the “conscience” of a company.
In very simple terms, if the company does not gain enough revenue to pay its employees and expense obligations, it will eventually go out of business.

Their actions and character are the essence of the company or business at hand of an organization. To me it boils down to understanding that the business is about numbers and the leaders are about ethics and responsibility to manage the business to success. How will your conscience as a leader effect the outcome of what you are striving to achieve? We must see diversity as a secret weapon to be exploited in order to build the most successful organization.
Since the leader sets the tone and the pace for its organization, it's imperative that you read industry publications, as well as general business pubs.
Over and above skills in analysis, market sizing, and financial modeling, business leaders need to possess ‘soft’ skills – leadership, communication, interpersonal skills. They really do focus on the soft skills when they make their hiring decisions.” In a recent survey of 508 MBA employers from around the world, QS TopMBA found that people skills, strategic thinking, and leadership were the three most important qualities for their MBA hires. To stand apart from the rest, it is key to display a creative and innovative entrepreneurial spirit.
Prior to joining the Prodigy team in March 2013, she worked in the tech start-up industry, primarily specializing in the development of online tools for driving performance management and employee engagement. We were discussing the hard decisions leaders of a company have to make along with how the company and its leaders are held accountable. While you may see some companies temporarily rally by asking their employees to make sacrifices; however, in the end the bills have to be paid. They need to own the state of the business and the decisions that need to be made to ensure the viability of the company.
Of course we all know that leaders can be unethical and drive a successful business, but usually in the end it catches up with them.

And we must also acknowledge that acting based on our own authenticity is imperative to weaving together the strength of the very fabric of the organization. Information and financial models can be learned and applied by most, but true innovation and leadership is what sets the great MBA graduates apart from the good. The statement Garry made was, “Business has no conscience, leaders have a conscience.” He then elaborated that ‘business’ is strictly about the numbers, metrics, and results. The ‘leaders’ of a business are about integrity and doing the right thing for employees and shareholders. When the performance of the business is not going well as indicated by the key metrics, it is up to the leaders to analyze what is going on and what to do to get it moving in the right direction.
And the leader will need to evaluate and take action to keep the viability of the business going in the right direction. In essence, the leaders are the brains and the conscience of the company as they steer to the desired destination.
When the leader acts ethically and responsibly they are acting with good conscience for the success of their business. Difficult decisions need to be made when the numbers are showing that the business is going in the wrong direction. The purpose of this part of the site is to help you become a great leader by cultivating your the skills you already possess.
