Leadership Momentum— Building an Empowering Culture That Out-Performs Strategies with Wale Adekanla

Effective leadership is the lifeblood of any successful organization. While leadership styles may vary, truly impactful leaders share certain qualities that allow them to inspire and move their teams to higher levels of performance. At their core, great leaders understand that leadership is not about titles or positions, but rather about one’s ability to consistently add value, solve problems, and empower others. 

This week, Wale Adekanla joins Daniel to share insights applicable to any stage of leadership. Wale is an international executive coach, business consultant, and author. He has worked with leaders across various industries, helping to develop individuals and organizations through customized mentorship programs.

Join in as Daniel and Wale talk about cultivating inner confidence as a leader, creating a culture of momentum in the organization, how culture and mindset can overcome any strategy, and the effect of training and equipping new leaders coming into positions.

“Leadership starts with you leading yourself. If you cannot lead yourself, do not dream to lead other people. If you are given a position to lead other people without leading you, you will cause more problems.” —Wale Adekanla

05:00 “If you have to tell people that I am your leader, that means you are not leading yet.” —Wale Adekanla

06:18 “Sometimes, some people are not really leading, they only occupy positions. You don’t need titles to lead.” —Wale Adekanla

08:19 “If you need a title to feel like you are a leader, then there is a problem with your mindset.” —Wale Adekanla

09:33 “Leadership starts with you leading yourself. If you cannot lead yourself, do not dream to lead other people. If you are given a position to lead other people without leading you, you will cause more problems.” —Wale Adekanla

12:11 “If you don’t train them, don’t blame them.” —Wale Adekanla

15:51 “Sometimes, scaling is duplicating yourself.” —Daniel  Gomez

17:35 “If you want to get to the next level, you need to learn the skill set for the next level.” —Wale Adekanla

18:10 “Motivation is not enough. It’s okay to start with motivation. But you need to have more than motivation. Discipline is needed. If you are not disciplined, you cannot be consistent. You need consistent learning.”—Wale Adekanla

26:14 “You create the culture as a leader, the owner of your organization.” —Daniel Gomez

27:17 “Leaders move. So if you are not moving, then that means you are not leading.” —Wale Adekanla
