In a crisis, there will be a chorus of voices urging leaders, “Don’t just stand there, do something!” But it takes a lot of discernment, and I think reflection on your values to know when, in fact, we need to “Don’t just do something. Stand there.”
Writing for the West Coast Way, Rodger Price laid out the three biggest opportunities before West Michigan leaders if we are to make our area the hotbed of the nation’s best leaders: become a person worth following, build a great team, and get clarity about why an organization exists, where it’s going, and how it will behave.
In a presentation at Wake Up West Coast, Rodger Price unpacked the DoKnowBe Tree concept. For anyone wanting to better understand their unique design for leadership, this really is a great primer on how Leading by DESIGN works to help leaders better know themselves and lead more effectively and authentically
Are you unintentionally playing a game of “You’re getting warmer, you’re getting colder” as a leader?

Imagine casting a vision for and leading a team who’s members change constantly due to injury or offseason moves. Imagine your job performance being evaluated and scrutinized not at a quarterly or annual review–but every week, by multiple coaches, profession pundits, and thousands of fans.
That’s the context for Rodger Price’s interview with veteran NFL quarterback Kirk Cousins.
