John Maxwell from Chic-Fil-A Leadercast

Some highlights from John Maxwell at Leadercast:

An educator takes something simple and makes it complicated.
A communicator takes something complicated and makes it simple.

It's not easy to be simple, but it's effective.
-It's easy to be simplistic, but it's not easy to be simple....don't confuse them!

4 Things in Being a Simple Leader:

1. Add value to people every day. Put people first; it increases your influence with them.

2. Subtract your leadership land mines. (Such as trying to make everybody happy)

3. Multiply your strengths by developing them.
-It's the things you do well that optimize you.
-You have influence in the areas of your strengths.

4. Divide your weaknesses by delegating them.
-Most who work with you already know your weaknesses...but you need to recognize them.
