LPTC Training Is Based On Human Dynamics
Simon Sinek, a recognized expert on leadership, recently wrote a brilliant book entitled: Leaders Eat Last. Simon picked up the title while working with the U. S. Marines. The sample of life’s real leadership truths listed below all come from Simon’s book. Simon and the LPTC Trainers believe when leaders have empathy and prioritize the safety of their people — people will give everything they’ve got to protect the organization and advance the well being of one another. Because of our extensive past experiences of living by these truths, we feel the best way for you to truly understand and incorporate these into your life, is to attend the Leadership Performance Training Center. You can experience one of Simon's many instructive talks on Youtube here.
The Needs of Others Come First
The true price of leadership is the willingness to place the needs of others above your own. Great leaders truly care about those they are privileged to lead and understand that the true cost of the leadership privilege comes at the expense of self-interest.
Cross Pollination of Ideas
The cross-pollination of ideas, leads to an atmosphere of collaboration that makes everyone feel valued. It's not how smart the people in the orgaization are: it's how well they work together that is the true indicator of future success or the ability to manage through struggles or challenges.
Insure They're Well Trained
It is a leader’s job instead to take responsibility for the success of each member of his crew. It is the leader’s job to ensure that they are well trained and feel confident to perform their duties. To give them responsibility and hold them accountable to advance the mission.
We're Built to Work as a Team
We are at our best when we face danger together. When we feel like we belong to the group and trust the people with whom we work. We naturally cooperate to face outside challenges and threats. Nothing of real value on this earth was built by one person, without the help of others. It is clear that the more others want to help us, the more we can achieve.
Enhancing Trust and Cooperation
This feeling of belonging, of shared values and a deep sense of empathy, dramatically enhances trust, cooperation and problem solving. United States Marines are better equipped to confront external dangers because they fear no danger from each other. They operate in a strong Circle of Safety.
