What separates a good leader from an Elite one?
It’s the same thing that separates a good athletes from elite athletes. Elite athletes focus on improving their craft by following a regular practice and improvement program.
Elite athletes are the ones who win championships, most valuable player awards and/or Olympic medals. They are the top 1% of the top 1% and receive ongoing training and development with coaches throughout their careers. These coaches are seasoned or retired professionals charged with helping them improve their already exceptional skills by providing a constant program of evaluation, development and improvement. If the best athletes in the world can have personalized ongoing development, why can’t our leaders?
It’s not just elite athletes who approach their work with this mindset. This approach to improvement is also followed by elite artists, such as:
- Award winning TV and movie performers
- Award winning musicians and vocalists
- Award winning chefs
- Renowned artists
The key to becoming an elite level leader is to approach your leadership the same way. That is, with a lifetime practice and improvement program that is refined on a daily basis.

Leadership is a process - Saturday, November 27, 2021 Michelle L Kilbourne, Ph.DWhile one might have become aware of Michael Phelps after his Olympic performance, the process of becoming an elite athlete happened decades prior to his record-breaking swims. I endorse this book for two simple reasons: it professes leadership is a process, not a point in time, and the process starts with humility and empathy. Leadership is about the other and this book begins with this basic premise and then builds from there by exploring the patterns of over 20 leaders (e.g., Tony Dungy, Lin-Manuel Miranda) and the five things these leaders do consistently for measurable leadership improvement.
