The 10 "Ps"

Our Dinner For Decision Makers, with Bob Fox as keynote was enlightening. He stood in a room full of people -- still jet lagged after surviving 20 hours on a plane from Palau -- discussing CEOs.

"In thinking about career & success, the key is ability and integrity" said Fox, a veteran CEO himself. "And here are the 10 'Ps' you have to watch out for":
  • People - The primary component to success or failure
  • Passion - I believe in it, and will make it happen
  • Perspective - What is this all about?
  • Priorities - What is the most important objective?
  • Performance - Being noticed for what you do
  • Personality - How other people see you
  • Pragmatic - There is more than one way
  • Power - Recognize where it is and use it judiciously
  • Politics - Be very alert & cautious
  • Perfect - The enemy of good
