Know Yourself and Know When To Go

I met a Chief Executive recently who had just resigned from his post. He had implemented major change initiatives and significant programmes were still in progress.

I expressed my surprise that he had decided to go. What he said was very revealing: “I know what I’m good at and, if I stayed, I’d want to change it all again”.

Another great example is the Ferrari F1 team. On the 14 April, Ferrari announced that Stephano Domenicali had resigned and would be replaced with immediate effect by Marco Mattiacci, the current president and CEO of Ferrari North America. See: http://bit.ly/1pqRSYv

Do you know who you are? Do you know your own strengths? Do you know what situations would allow you to perform at your best?

If you’d like to know yourself better, then contact me. I can help you to discover your own strengths and learn how to use your leadership skills to best effect.

Call me, Francis on +44 (0) 1905 641 528 or drop me a note at: francis@francischristie.co.uk. Let me help you to develop your full potential.
