Ep. 161 – Omar Luqmann-Harris, Author of Leader Board on High-Performance Teams

Omar Luqmann-Harris is the author of Leader Board: The DNA of High-Performance Teams. While leading teams around the world, he saw an employee engagement gap emerge because traditional leadership principles didn’t change with the workforce of today. Omar talks with Brian Ardinger, Inside Outside Innovation Founder, about why employees won’t respond to old ways of leadership.

Omar first looked at the titans of leadership and applied their principles to his teams around the world. Then he created new methods to determine what works today.

Leadership 1.0 – Late 1800s to post WWII – Farm to the Factory – Hierarchy, homogenous workforce – Henry Ford

Leadership 2.0 – Post-WWII – 1990s – Diversity, American Dream Phase, Teams – JFK and Space Race

Leadership 3.0 – 1990s – now – Information Revolution – Solution to innovation – Leadership different, organizations are flatter and connected.

Work has changed from individuals to teams, moving from A Players focus to Team Focus. Now everyone on the team is excellent at something. Empower them to lead.
