Four Qualities of Game Changers

“The ability to distinguish between management and leadership exposes the path to the next level. Success requires both.

Management is evolution.
Leadership is revolution.

“Don’t just play the game – change the game. The goals are to create, improve on, and innovate around best practices in order to find next practices.”

Mike Myatt in “Hacking Leadership

Four qualities of game changers:

  1. Self-aware. The ability to know, grow, and express who you are – for the good of others – is your greatest contribution. The only alternative is being someone else.
  2. Awareness of and sensitivity to others. Insensitive people seldom change the game. The best leaders are both tough and sensitive to others. I’ll concede there are a few exceptions. I doubt if you’re one.
  3. Market-intelligence. Game changers understand what the market will embrace.
  4. Purpose. ‘… they understand the value of serving something beyond themselves.’ Mike Myatt”
