Lead on Purpose

Promoting Leadership Principles in Product Management

Effective leadership

Leave a comment

This week’s posts on Lead on Purpose have been highly influenced by Steve Farber and his work in leadership. I had the honor of interviewing Steve on the Product Management Pulse yesterday. The conversation focuses on two areas:

  1. Extreme Leadership (“otherwise known as ‘real’ leadership”) and its odd mixture of fear and exhilaration. If the only reason you can think of to not do something is because it’s scary, that’s an indication that you should do it.
  2. Greater Than Yourself, Steve’s new leadership book. As leaders it’s your job to not just be helpful but to lift others above yourself. We discuss the three tenets of Greater Than Yourself:
  • Expand yourself
  • Give yourself
  • Replicate yourself

Steve gives excellent advice on becoming a great leader. Click below and enjoy the podcast:
