In today’s episode Casey is going to breakdown the four levels of the leadership tree. If you’ve ever found yourself in a situation where you felt confused about how to appropriately delegate, when is the right time to delegate, or how much you should delegate, this simple system you will hear about in this show, is exactly what you need.


Key Takeaways:

[1:08] Casey talks about leadership.

[1:40] A leader does not create followers but creates more leaders.

[2:32] The leadership tree has four main components (decision-making levels)

  1. Leaf
  2. Branch
  3. Trunk
  4. Root

[3:16] Leaf level: when you take action on your own, without reporting to anyone.

[4:29] Branch level: you make the decision but then report what you did and why you did it.

[5:25] Trunk level: you make the decision but before you act, you go to your superior who acts as a safety net.

[6:53] Root level: a major decision that the leader makes with input from many people, this is a decision that could highly affect the company.

[10:04] The path to greatness in a company is made through the decisions we make, not through how well we take directions.

[11:03] The goal is for the employees to think about what is the best decision and how it affects the company.

[11:42] Learning is provoked and unavoidable.
