Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

If you want to be a great leader, you have to master the mindset of the chef.

When it comes to cooking, you always have to balance ingredients. If you put too much of one thing, it becomes too sweet, too much of something else, it becomes too salty or too much of another ingredient, it becomes unhealthy or too sweet.

As a leader in this new world of work that we're all a part of, there are only two ingredients that you have to balance, which are humanity and technology.

Humanity is this aspect of making sure that your organization stays human, that you focus on purpose and meaning and undoing good. And the second aspect that you need to balance is technology, which is this idea of investing so that you can be productive and efficient and scale.
