H3 Leadership – Be Humble. Stay Hungry. Always Hustle

As a new feature of Thinking Business Blog, I plan to publish a brief, one paragraph summary of the business books that I am reading. This will be a very high level synopsis of the book and what I gained from it. I will publish these summaries as I complete the books and not on a predetermined schedule. I trust you will benefit from them.

The first book I reviewed was Procrastinate on Purpose.

The second review was Bill Browder’s book, Red Notice

The third review was Atul Gawande’s book The Checklist Manifesto

The fourth review is H3 Leadership by Brad Lomenick

This is a great leadership book written through the eyes of Lomenick as he transitioned from leadership of an organization called Catalyst to a lengthy sabbatical and then back into the marketplace. It is packed with great stories, meaningful insights and stunning wisdom. My takeaway from this book is his 20 components of H3 Leadership:

HUMBLE

  • Self-Discovery: Know who you are
  • Openness: Share the real you with others
  • Meekness: Remember it’s not about you
  • Conviction: Stick to your principles
  • Faith: Prioritize your day so God is first
  • Assignment : Live out your calling

HUNGRY

  • Ambition: Develop an appetite for what’s next
  • Curiosity: Keep learning
  • Passion: Love what you do
  • Innovation: Stay current, creative, and engaged
  • Inspiration: Nurture a vision for a better tomorrow
  • Bravery: Take calculated risks

HUSTLE

  • Excellence: Set standards that scare you
  • Stick-with-it-ness: Take the long view
  • Execution: Commit to completion
  • Team Building : Create an environment that attracts and retains the best and brightest
  • Partnership: Collaborate with colleagues and competitors
  • Margin: Nurture healthier rhythms
  • Generosity: Leave the world a better place
  • Succession : Find power in passing the baton
