Why SuperLeadership?

"The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers." ~ Ralph Nader

As an impactful superleader, you must know how to successfully influence the way people influence and coach themselves. If you are successful in empowering, inspiring, providing strategic alignment, energizing and coaching people, they develop followers who are productive, work independently, and need only minimal attention from the superleader.

An important measure of a leader's own success is the success of his or her followers.

They're all going to get paid on their improvement, and they know that. In bureaucratic companies, they waste a lot of time on making budgets. They waste energy. The world is changing quickly. We can't afford to waste time in bureaucracy. GE is an informal company. We trust each other."... More
