DevReady PodcastGo To The Extra Mile with Simon Madden – Episode 84 – DevReady Podcast

Simon Madden joins hosts Andrew Romeo and Anthony Sapountzis in this episode of the DevReady Podcast. Simon is the Founder of Simon Madden Consulting and now helps organizations understand what it takes to achieve a sustained high-performance culture.

The ability to ‘get good and stay good’ is vital for success, as per Simon. Many people become successful and then they get comfortable there. Simon says that it is important to realise that the work still remains—there needs to be continuous improvement.

If you don’t want to get the same outcome that everyone else is getting then you have to stop doing what everyone else is doing. You need to take that one extra step if you want to stand out in the crowd and sustain your growth.

Simon then goes on to talk about the difference between management and leadership. He says while both are important, both are different skills. And a great leader, to him, is someone who can lead people where they don’t want to go but where they should be.

“For a lot of people, mediocrity is comfort.” – Simon Madden

Also, reiterating the importance of people, he says that it takes a good leader to understand the needs of those people while making sure a balance is maintained with achieving the goals of the organization.
