Summary
Transcript

Glen Jackson, co-founder of marketing communications agency Jackson Spalding, explains that there are two types of leaders: ‘and then’ leaders and ‘but then’ leaders.

“Always [be] an ‘and then’ leader, not a ‘but then’ leader,” says Glen. “The ‘but then’ leader is moving along well in her business, but then makes a wrong turn. But then makes a greedy decision… The ‘and then’ leader is moving along, and then she makes this great strategic decision and then more momentum happens.”

Watch the interview to learn more about these two types of leaders and why you should always strive to be an ‘and then’ leader.

One of the things I've seen over the years is there are two types of leaders. There's ‘and then’ leader and there's a ‘but then’ leader. You've got to be, to protect it, always an ‘and then’ leader, not a ‘but then’ leader. So the ‘but then’ leader is moving along well in her business, but then makes a wrong turn. But then makes a greedy decision. But then, he loses focus on their values. But then the focus on the clients it's diminished. But then, but then.

But, the ‘and then’ leader is moving along, and she makes this great strategic decision and then more momentum happens. And then they increase their intensity and then they're focused on their clients and all their other assets starting with their people is increased. And then, and then. Be an ‘and then’ not a ‘but then’ leader from my perspective, and watch what happens.
