Background

The author introduces Bill Walsh's leadership approach as an alternative to the conventional philosophies, that he finds to be oversimplified.

The Conventional Approach

  1. OKR-centered Method
    1. Set an overall vision
    2. Come up with mutually agreed upon goals
    3. Delegating to allow the team to perform
  2. Dictator Mentality
    1. Have the leader at the top make the most important decisions

Bill Walsh's Approach

  • Concentrate on what will produce results rather than on the results, the process rather than the prize
  • Focus yourself squarely on the outcomes that actually matters
  • Establish a Standard of Performance for every role on the team
  • Define and raise the bar for what excellence looked like
  • Have a passion for teaching
