A Smart Person Knows When They are in the Presence of True Leadership!
I was in the presence of another magnificent leader this week when I had the privilege of hosting Ed Borromeo. Ed is the Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer for Tallwave, Inc. Tallwave is a technological business design and innovation agency. It develops and launches bleeding edge technology.
As I talked with Ed I knew he was a true expert in business. He has a keen understanding about the impact leadership has on success. His journey has included obtaining his degree in environmental engineering at Berkeley. An active service member of the Air Force for 6+ years, leading multidisciplinary operational teams. Later, Ed was re-assigned as a chief of staff for a commanding general.
Ed left his military career and entered the for-profit market. To make sure he would have a smooth transition, Ed carefully interviewed and chose a disruptive organization that supported his leadership principles and work ethic. That was just the beginning of his career!
Currently, Ed is an entrepreneur and leads in a dual role. One of ownership and the other in leading and executing the mission of the organization.
During our time together, Ed shared his leadership practices and his 4 non-negotiable principles to leading and building innovative teams. They are:
- Ownership thinking.
- High sense and level and feeling of accountability.
- Teamwork and collaboration.
- Contribution to a higher cause.
Ed is a master of applying the defined principles of leadership. He understands the importance of leading –
- Teams that report up to you.
- Cross-functional organizations that you can only influence without binding authority.
- Finally, those who lead you.
Ed shares his no-nonsense, practical approach to success and offers great tips for continual success. This is a great listen! Click Here!
