Leadership For Deep Results: Without Them Are You Wasting Your Leadership And Your Life? (Part One) by Brent Filson

I've challenged all leaders I have worked with duringrepparttar 137401 past two decades to achieve "more results faster continually."

They can get on track to start achieving such results not by working harder and longer but by slowing down and using Leadership Talks on a daily basis.

However, I also tell them that getting onrepparttar 137402 more-results-faster-continually track is not an end but a beginning. They must then begin focusing not just onrepparttar 137403 quantity and speed of results butrepparttar 137404 kind of results they aim to achieve.

There are roughly two kinds of results, standard results and deep results. Most leaders understand standard results but fail to come to grips with deep results. In fact, these leaders go through their entire careers gettingrepparttar 137405 former, but they don't have a clue aboutrepparttar 137406 latter. Of course, standard results are necessary. But inrepparttar 137407 long run, they are far less important than deep results.

We know what standard results are. They arerepparttar 137408 results we must get in our jobs, such as: speed, productivity, operations efficiencies, sales closes, sales leads, sales to new customers, failure prevention, health and safety advancements, quality, training, quality control, logistics efficiencies, marketing targets, new revenue streams, sales erosion, price calibrations, cost reductions, demand flow activities and technologies, inventory turns, cycle time reductions, materials and parts management, etc.

Leadership For Deep Results: Without Them Are You Wasting Your Leadership And Your Life? (Part Two) by Brent Filson

How does one go about getting deep results? There are many paths up this mountain. But one path is straight and steep and clear. That isrepparttar 137400 path ofrepparttar 137401 Leadership Imperative.

I WILL LEAD PEOPLE IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY NOT ONLY ACHIEVE THE RESULTS WE NEED BUT THEY ALSO BECOME BETTER AS LEADERS AND AS PEOPLE.

The Imperative has two parts: one is results-accomplishments andrepparttar 137402 other is self betterment.

You are never more powerful as a leader as when, in getting results, you are helping others be better than they are -- even better than thought they could be. Guided byrepparttar 137403 Leadership Imperative, you'll find yourself realizing deep results.

Deep results are not a measurement or a direction. They are not a central purpose. They are a process of being. They are not something achieved. They are an achieving taking place not at a special place in a special time but at every place at all times.

You are deep results before you know that you are. Though deep results are easy, though often they do not come easily.

We are this mind/body in this space/time continuum. We know that. But to realize it, we must live it. To live it, we must seek it in our living. And that knowing and living and seeking is deep results.

The task that we shoulder reveals our heart torepparttar 137404 world. Deep results show our soul torepparttar 137405 world.

Examples of deep results:

--Withrepparttar 137406 disasters ofrepparttar 137407 Franco-Prussia War tumbling down upon Paris, a remarkable event took place,repparttar 137408 word of which spread like wildfire throughrepparttar 137409 city. The great author Victor Hugo, exiled for 19 years, had come back to Paris. Traveling through German lines, throughrepparttar 137410 war-ravaged countryside, he had come intorepparttar 137411 city on virtuallyrepparttar 137412 last train. He had come to sharerepparttar 137413 sufferings withrepparttar 137414 Parisians in their darkest hour when his arriving meant virtual imprisonment inrepparttar 137415 city. Throngs gathered atrepparttar 137416 station to applaud him. One man shouted overrepparttar 137417 crowd, "If defeat brings us Victor Hugo, we couldn't be better rewarded!" deep results.
