About Shaun Worcester

Between my quest to be the husband and father I can, the best online marketeer in the area, volunteering at MCC and a couple other things, I'm a busy guy. I've found the key to happiness (and survival) for me is to be well organized and structured so that I can do a 'good job' at everything. But one of these days I'm going to be able to withdraw from everything else and just spend my days w/ God, Gaby, family and friends.

    The good-to-great companies built a consistent system with clear constraints, but they also gave people freedom and responsibility within the framework of that system. They hired self-disciplined people who didn’t need to be managed, and then managed the system, not the people.
    Note: How to you measure, in an interview and even reference checks if someone is self-disciplined or not? #GoodToGreat

    No emotion is uglier than jealousy, and you can jot this one down in bold print: jealousy is always the result of a perceived threat. And a threat always places a 911 call to insecurity.
    Note: Jealousy is always the result of a perceived threat. #SoLongInsecurity

    Yes, leadership is about vision. But leadership is equally about creating a climate where the truth is heard and the brutal facts confronted. There’s a huge difference between the opportunity to “have your say” and the opportunity to be heard. The good-to-great leaders understood this distinction, creating a culture wherein people had a tremendous opportunity to be heard and, ultimately, for the truth to be heard.
    Note: I think this is what happened at my last job... One of our VPs didn't want to hear the truth, and I became "a problem" for confronting the brutal facts. #GoodToGreat

    Practical Discipline #3: Put your best people on your biggest opportunities, not your biggest problems
    Note: Sometimes in my career I have been assigned to the biggest problems... But in recent years it's usually been the biggest opportunities. #GoodToGreat

    Level 5 leaders channel their ego needs away from themselves and into the larger goal of building a great company. It’s not that Level 5 leaders have no ego or self-interest. Indeed, they are incredibly ambitious—but their ambition is first and foremost for the institution, not themselves.
    Note: We need more Level 5 leaders in our businesses, churches and non-profits. #GoodToGreat
