A record-breaking crowd at the Good Leadership Breakfast hung on every word from the charming TV anchor turned successful entrepreneur.
As cable TV blossomed, she began to see abundant opportunities…so she quit the high-paying, high-profile co-anchor job on WCCO TV in Minneapolis, and started Tremendous! Entertainment. Her story is a familiar tale of excitement to survival to significance which tests faith, family, finances, fitness, friends, fun and future.
Like other early stage entrepreneurs, Colleen freely admits: “in the survival mode, we started looking at anything and everything that could help us make money to keep the doors open.” The magic moment came when she and her leadership team recommitted to wholesome television programming as their focus.
Excellence as an outcome
With renewed focus on their compelling “why,” the team rallied around a purpose statement…Where Character Matters…as their point of differentiation in an industry often identified for greed and selfishness. The result is a thriving organization today with enviable growth and mastery of a sorely needed skill – programming that brings alive the Seven Fs.
Good leaders often wander and struggle. And they find their way with renewed focus on the compelling reason for why they took the risk.
Please share with me: How would focus help you radiate goodness?
