Leadership Is Overrated

Potential Leader Lab

05-06-2023 • 20 mins

Management is what creates value, not leadership. And yet we’ve become enamored by leadership; the vision, the strategy, and the charisma. In the process, we’ve created an ecosystem that supports just one level of an organization to think creatively, come up with unique or interesting ideas, or build the vision of the organization, leaving it to others to implement those ideas.

80% of the important things that happen in a business are management-oriented, which leads me to believe nobody’s job should be to purely lead an organization. In this episode, I’m exploring what happens when we allow all levels of an organization to offer up great ideas and contribute to the vision while being able to execute those ideas.

Perry Maughmer believes the world deserves better leadership; that in every human interaction there is the opportunity to either build others up or tear them down; and that leadership is the choice we make in those moments.

These beliefs led Perry to create the Potential Leader Lab. He wanted to offer those who share his beliefs the space and safety to explore transformative ideas, experiment with new behaviors, and evolve into the leaders they were meant to be and that the world needs.

This is a framework he has used again and again with his Vistage peer advisory groups and companies like Turn-Key Tunneling, Convergint, Haughn &  Associates, I Am Boundless, Ketchum & Walton, LSP Technologies, and Ahlum & Arbor.

Perry lives and works on the shores of Buckeye Lake in Ohio, in the mountains of northwest Georgia, and on the beach in Anna Maria, Florida with his amazingly creative wife Lisa. They have 2 rescue dogs and are intermittently visited by their 3 wonderful children throughout the year. Perry & Lisa are living life in crescendo and focused on exploring, experimenting, and evolving their vision of a life they have no desire to retire from.
