Expedia President’s Leadership Mantra

I was talking with Aman Bhutani, President of the Brand Expedia Group. By the way, he’ll be on the roster for the 2018 “From the CEO’s Perspective” forum series, so stay tuned for those details.

In the meantime…He’s a leader with a mantra: Be Better Every Day. How does he do it?  He threw down with two of my new favorite questions, the ones he asks himself every day:

  • Am  I moving the fastest?
  • Am I learning the most?

I highly recommend you borrow his next time you need to kick start your executive presence or your leadership mindset. Even better, send me yours! What’s your mantra or the questions you use to light the fire under your own ass? It’s hard. And I’m always collecting inspiration!

Speaking of inspiration, two things are happening:
