Insights: Cultivating leadership within organisations


In this Short Talk episode Judith Germain speaks to Clifton Savage about his insights on cultivating leadership within organisations. Clifton expresses his passion for each day’s opportunities and learning experiences.

Key Takeaways

  • Leadership is about serving others, not just yourself. Share your growth with others.
  • Communication is key for leadership in teams. Assessments like DISC can provide perspective.
  • Have a heart for service. Make decisions that help others progress.
  • Practical application of positive change starts with valuing people. Improve recruiting, onboarding, training.
  • The Attraction Blueprint is a DIY guide for attracting, training and retaining employees.

In this conversation Clifton explains that cultivating leaders means improving one’s mindset, emotions, and obstacles to then share learnings with others through breadcrumbs of wisdom, despite approaches varying per person.

Clifton stresses authentic care for people through leadership training, ownership of custom company assets, and personal development courses empowering employees to thrive at work and beyond as complete individuals.

Clifton Savage is on a mission to spread the word that everyone can make a positive change in this world. Clifton believes that being a good steward of your time, energy and money by seeking to serve others first, allows you to multiply your impact at a staggering rate.

Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It’s about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine.

But amplifying your influence as a leader isn’t just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It’s also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.

How Influential Are you? Take the scorecard at and see.
