Program and Presenter

"I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it." - Bill Gates

Learn how exceptional CEOs get more done in less time than everyone else and their technique for getting their work done while still having the time to spend quality time with their friends and family.


During this event you will learn how the best CEOs spend most of their time eliminating the single biggest constraint to the growth of their business and how they spend a lot of time finding this constraint before taking action. This process is similar to looking for the kink in a garden hose so you can get the flow going again. There is no use trying to unkink the hose until you find the actual problem.


Depending on the nature of the constraint, they then engage in fixing the kink in the hose using one of five different roles: the Learner, Architect, Coach, Engineer, or Player. Together, these high-leverage roles form the archetype for great leadership and create permanent improvement in the business.


This insight isn't just some theory but is derived directly from working with thousands of CEOs running high-growth companies. The trick to being great and lazy is to only work at the point of constraint and to avoid all work that doesn't increase organizational capacity. Lazy CEOs have a series of well-developed tools to properly avoid this non-value work.


So, do you want to keep working hard? Or would you rather get busy being lazy?
