Fortune Magazine Picks 50 Greatest Leaders For 2017

fortune 500

Interesting List to Me.

I have never heard of many of these people and do not really plan on learning about them. Of course, there were many familiar names. But I bet you would never guess number one. Bet many of you have never heard of him.

Drum Roll…

Theo Epstein: The man who led the Chicago Cubs to a long over-due World Series win. If you didn’t know, he also won two World Series in Boston. It did take them seven games and extra innings in a rain storm, but they won.

What Were His Main Goals to Achieve Success Again?

Hire for character, know the limits of data, foster connections. They sound very simple, and I even see that I should follow those more closely.

In-and-Out says that they hire based on attitude, some great computer expert real estate agents earn a small percentage of some of the people who still hold open houses and the number one rule of Real Estate, Return Their Phone Calls which now adds, Texts and Emails.

And I still believe in attending certain business gatherings and know why you are there. To meet and greet. Now, let’s see if the Cubs repeat.

Others on the list:

#2- Jack Ma of Alibaba Group (Chinese Digital Conglomerate)
#3- Pope Francis
#4- Melinda Gates
#5- Jeff Bezos (and I thought Amazon would run out of money before they made it)
#6- H. R. McMaster (if you do not know him now you soon will)
#7- Tsai-Ing-Wen (President of Taiwan)
#8- John McCain
#9- Angela Merkel
#10- Lebron James
#17- Janet Yellen
#19- Samantha Bee (a current favorite)
#21- John Roberts
#38-Elon Musk; and the rest all seem to come together.

These are the selections of Fortune.

If I Picked 50, Perhaps None of Their Fifty Would End Up On Mine.

Some I would favor:

  • The Coach of the Connecticut Women’s Basketball Team
  • The inventor of the Kuerig Coffee Machine
  • Dwayne “The Rock” who is the highest income earning actor of the year
  • The woman who life was cited in the movie
  • “Hidden Figures” Lynsi Snyder, President of In And Out Burgers and in May 2017 will control 100% of the company-owned company and she plans to never franchise or sell and pass the company on to her children. She sure picked the right grandparents.

Who is your first pick?

      Thank you so much for your kind words. All of my students are retiring, become 70 so no more CE, etc. Good to hear from you.

      Still working some. Do not do the schedule that I used to do around the State. I cannot tell from your comment, where did you take most of our seminars?

      Keep in touch.
