How You Can Be Excellent at Leading Scale (w/ Bob Sutton)

Now, more than ever, growth is a constant requirement to succeed. With more access to information, people are smarter and businesses are more competitive.  So we need to be excellent at failing fast then scaling success quickly.  But scale means change which can be a major struggle to both lead and maintain without it all (and you) crashing down and burning out.

When I first started building systems to scale Lit Up Leadership, I was overwhelmed. It required a new technical skillset that I had not developed fully before and I had a time limit.  Therefore, the challenge took me longer that I would have liked and no magical wands existed yet to make 8 extra hours of time appear!  It felt chaotic.

Luckily, I didn’t go too far down the rabbit hole. I realized that could apply what I teach to my own situation in a new way.  And even better, I also knew today’s guest and his latest work…

In this episode of the Spark, award winning author and renowned management expert, Dr. Robert Sutton from Stanford University and IDEO shares the secrets to scale up without screwing up. The principles in Bob and co-author Huggy Rao’s latest book, Scaling Up Excellence, helped me refocus and readjust to lead scale in my own work though it is written for scaling up excellence in teams and entire organizations.
