“Trust is the most important five-letter word in business — more important than asset, money or brand,” said Glen Jackson, co-founder of Jackson Spalding during CAPRSA’s keynote session.
He also offered other tips: “When you are leading a business, you should focus on the five “Fs: Fun, fascinating, future, financial and freedom … and what I call the ‘-ates:’ Celebrate, delegate, initiate and navigate.”
“There are leaders who attract leaders and leaders who attract followers,” he said. “Be leaders who attract followers and leaders’ leaders. You attract leaders by focusing on your people’s strengths, not weaknesses.”
Wise words to lead by.
