My 7 Operating Principles

  1. Get things done. Practice the art of the possible with a clear bias for action. Without this attitude the following principles matter a lot less.
  2. Take risks. It’s okay to make mistakes. The important thing is to make newer and smarter mistakes. Make progressively better mistakes.
  3. Leadership is about providing clarity. Where are we headed? How will we get there? What needs to get done right now? How can you contribute? Answering these questions for you is my first order of business.
  4. Your success is my success. My commitment to you is that I’ll work hard to provide you with opportunities to grow, the resources to act on these opportunities, and the visibility to get your successes recognized and rewarded. At the same time…
  5. Be proactive in finding and pursuing opportunities. Take ownership of your career and your growth.
  6. Speak up, especially if you have a differing opinion. Consensus is not always a good thing. Disagree respectfully and in a principled manner. Spirited debate leads to a better end product.
  7. Have fun. I take this aspect of my job very seriously!
