Lead Simply can help you
help leaders focus on
what's most important (and often missed) in creating a special team of people.
What is Lead [simply]?
Model. Connect. Involve. Model the behavior you want to see. Connect with the people you lead. Involve them as much as possible. That's your framework for leadership – your simple, day-to-day, in-the-trenches formula for creating that special team of people that does important and meaningful work ... that cares to make things better ... continually ... every day.
Written by Sam Parker (bestselling author of 212° the extra degree® and Smile & Move®), Lead [simply] is a no-fluff, no-parable, no-matrix call to fully embrace (and do) those simple things that can have the biggest impact on making things better.
Life is short. We're not here to fill or kill time. Lead [simply] is your wake up call. Let's go work. (no more mediocrity, no more indifference, no more "good enough")

Lead [simply] is a no-fluff, no-parable, no-matrix call to fully embrace (and do) the simple things that can have the biggest impact on making things better.
Start by handing out the bestselling book (a 30-minute read at most which means people will really read it) and then discuss it as a team using the Leader's Discussion Guide. Then keep the message top-of-mind by handing out and/ or posting the fun reinforcement items (posters, reminder cards, pens, etc.).
It's simple enough to kick off or support an upcoming meeting, project, or event and deep enough to stand on its own as a theme or leadership team building message. You might even find it helpful as an on-boarding tool for new leadership hires (to set leadership expectations). One more idea below.

One more idea ... If you'd like to introduce Lead [simply] using a video, we recommend buying any of our other videos that you feel would speak best to your group and a copy of the Lead [simply] book for each person (Love Your People or Smile & Move are Sam's favorites for this idea ... Sam wrote Lead [simply]).
You might also add the appropriate posters of your choice and/ or books, pocket cards, and/ or wristbands. The videos on their own can be found here.
The key to your choice will be what behaviors you and your team want to model most (e.g., Love Your People behaviors, Smile & Move behaviors).
