Checklist for 10x Leadership

  • The best leaders were not more risk taking, more visionary, and more creative than the comparisons; they were more disciplined, more empirical, and more paranoid.
  • Innovation by itself is not the trump card in a chaotic and uncertain world; more important is the ability to scale innovation, to blend creativity with discipline.
  • Following the belief that leading in a “fast world” always requires “fast decisions” and “fast action” is a good way to get killed.
  • They always test new ideas by “firing bullets” (doing tests) before “firing canon balls” (taking a big bet on something new), allowing them to know when a need idea will be more likely to succeed
  • 10x leaders prepare ahead of time for what they cannot predict, and build up reserves that act as a buffer. They consistently consider the possibility that events could turn against them at any moment.
  • 10x leaders have the ability to “zoom out” and take a look at the whole issue and the macro environments that affect their world, before “zooming in” and addressing the problem at hand.
  • The great companies changed less in reaction to a radically changing world than the comparison companies.
