Phil Gafka: Pursuing Excellence in Leadership, Culture, and Influence

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Phil Gafka discuss:

  • The top leadership and culture challenges that are faced in the workplace.
  • Putting the right people in the right seats. 
  • Understanding what your values mean to your organization.
  • Posing questions to influence change. 

 

Key Takeaways:

  • You manage the process, you lead people. As a “managing partner,” you need to learn how to lead your team, not just manage the processes of what is happening. 
  • There are potentially 5 generations working in your organization – stop talking about the difference and focus on the commonalities between us as a team. 
  • Values don’t have to transfer from one organization to another, but you do have to be honest and deep with understanding what your organization’s culture and values are. 
  • Set your sights on excellence, not perfection. 

 

“The only way you can move forward is to accept responsibility and then make those connections.” —  Phil Gafka
