Gravy Train or Train Wreck? Which Leadership Train Are You On?

Have you ever thought that leadership is a lot like a train? Here’s how Kirk Dando thinks of it: The cars sitting on the tracks are loaded with different but valuable cargo (like team members: They’re all different but collectively valuable); they have a destination (the vision, measurable goals and expected time frames for arrival at the goals); and they have a route to follow (the mission and strategic plan). But they do not have a way of getting anywhere on their own. They have to hook up to the engine (the leader).

Likewise, all leaders are conductors, steering their corporate ‘trains’ onward, upward and ever forward with knowledge, experience, confidence and enthusiasm—and, above all else, passion and a sure and steady hand.

Read Kirk Dando's Manifesto to learn about:

  • Leadership: Is My Leadership “Train” the Problem?
  • Culture: Where Is Your Culture “Train” Taking You?
  • What is Our Performance “Train” Really Telling Us About Future Growth?
  • Problem Solving vs. Problem Predicting
