Level 5 Leadership
Good to Great, by Jim Collins
• Blending “personal humility with professional will”
• Professional Will - Creates superb results no matter how
difficult; sets standards for building an enduring organization;
looks in the mirror not out the window in taking responsibility
• Personal Humility - Compelling modesty, shuns adulation,
never boastful; acts with quiet determination; does not rely on
charisma to motivate; channels ambition into the next
generation; looks out the window not in the mirror to give credit
where it is due
19
Level 5 Leadership
Good to Great, by Jim Collins
• “It’s not that Level 5 leaders have no ego or self-interest.
Indeed, they are incredibly ambitious – but their ambition is first
and foremost for the institution, not themselves.”
• Level 5 Leaders have a strong vision for their company,
organization, or institution blended with drive to succeed, an
understanding of how to set up the next generation for success,
and “unwavering resolve to do what must be done.”
