Tailor Your Leadership Strategies to Your Unique Situation w/ Karl Fong Yee

We live in an age where access to information is at an all-time high, and there is no shortage of resources for aspiring leaders. That being said, filtering through everything available to us can be a challenge at times. Where do we even begin to decide what applies to us and what doesn’t?

The truth is, not everything out there is relevant to our personal experiences, and what works for one business owner doesn’t always work for everyone.

So, where do we draw the line? How can we continue to be inspired by those who have gone before us without trying to recreate their journey, step by step?

In this episode, Director of Operations at The Riley Smith Group, Karl Fong Yee shares why staying true to our unique situations is the key to success.

Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode

  • Why we need to think of culture as a lifestyle We can’t stop at just talking about team culture, we have to live it. Company culture is a direct reflection of its leadership, so if we’re expecting certain values to shine through, we have to embody them ourselves.

  • How to be proactive in our businesses without going overboard Don’t wait to hit a wall before recruiting new talent, hire before demand hits. That being said, it’s also important to stay mindful of where we are and base hires on our team’s size and capacity.

  • The importance of staying focused on our own journeys No matter how motivational another leader is, their path isn’t always the same as our own. Instead of trying to copy the blueprint of another’s success, focus only on the lessons that apply and find a unique, individualized way forward.
