If Ned Spieker is a typical billionaire real estate mogul, then the path to success isn’t what you might expect. According to Spieker, it’s not about being an autocrat, but being a servant, not creating a hierarchy, but sharing responsibility, and not about wanting it all, but starting small and working very hard. Serendipity, Spieker admits, plays a big part, but that’s out of our hands regardless. It often takes a little luck to get past seemingly insurmountable obstacles. But in the meantime we have to lay the groundwork that effectively loads the dice in our favor.
1. When you’re going through difficult episodes they’re crises; but in hindsight they’re blips.
2. Self esteem is earned; you can’t give it.
3. Good leaders eat last: when you serve your people and build trust they will work harder and smarter as a result.
