The Number That Means Everything for Leaders
May 1, 2019
The dynamic that exists between leaders and time revolves around one powerful number: 480.
For leaders today, everything, it would seem, changes constantly. But there is one constant: the constant demands on leaders’ time. Indeed, time is the one variable leaders can’t control.
We at DDI have been thinking a lot about the dynamic that exists between leaders and time. And we’ve come to understand it revolves around one powerful number.
That number is 480.
To understand why this is, I encourage you to watch this video featuring John Verdone, one of DDI’s leadership experts, who recently gave an excellent speech at a conference on how our work lives are driven by the number 480 without us realizing it.
He also introduces a powerful new approach to leadership that’s built on that number, Leadership 480SM.
Beginning today, you’re going to hear a lot more from DDI about Leadership 480SM and the ways we help leaders make the most of their 480 minutes, days, and months.
I invite you to take a bit of your time—just a few of the precious 480 minutes you have in your day—to learn more about Leadership 480SM.
Learn more about how DDI helps leaders make every moment of leadership count.
