Playing the Infinite Game in a Healthy Organization Reaching for the Desired Future

At the EntreLeadership Summit (@EntreLeadership) of 2019, three of the speakers, Dr. Henry Cloud, Patrick Lencioni, and Simon Sinek spoke and their messages really coalesced into a unified message. As I listened to and reflected on each of them, they were some of the best times that I’d heard them speak. Each presentation was excellent in its own right but I knew there was something more. I felt that put together, they would form part of a larger, better message.

Towards a Growth Organization

For a number of years now, the term Growth President has been in the vernacular of college boards, C-Suite leaders in academia, general administration, and faculty. In large part, the term is meant to reflect that leader who is leading the charge to gain students.

It should be clear that the effective Growth President will create the vision, the team, and the culture.

Overnight Success

If you ever have had the opportunity to attend a Dave Ramsey EntreLeadership Event (and if you haven’t, and you’re leading an organization, you should), you may have heard about how they were an “overnight success.” They were a sensation on Oprah, with a best-selling book on the market, great products for consumers, etc. The theme song “Fame” echoed in the background, I’m sure. From an outsider’s perspective, I’m sure it did seem that they were suddenly everywhere.
