I want to talk to you about crisis. Not how to manage crisis, not how to lead in crisis, not even how to understand crisis, but to have a different frame for crisis. Most crises I’ve been in are a mystery. And we feel a pressure inside of us to try to deconstruct our crisis. The big question is “Why did it happen?” “Why, why, why?” What I have learned is that there are no simple answers.

We all have weaknesses. So the question becomes, how do I handle the things I’m strong at, and how do I handle things I’m weak at? Now, some people say, build on your strengths and ignore your weaknesses. Some people say, build on your strengths and strengthen your weaknesses. I want to talk about none of them. What I want you to know is, you’ll be an amazing leader as long as you are self-aware of your weaknesses.

Let’s take my life as an example. What I do is, I’m a leadership consultant, I write books, I’m an author, I speak on platforms, I do leadership roundtables for executives and senior leaders of organizations. That is what I do, but who I am is not what I do. Because what I do is simply a delivery system for who I am. So who am I, Sam Chand? Let me tell you.

I have been disappointed many times. I have been disappointing many times. Disappointments are a part of life. How do you handle disappointments? Do they disable you? Do they take you out of the game? Do you start having self-doubt? Do you try to put a spin on the disappointment? Or do you step back and say “Yep, it happened.” What do I do? I learn from it and move forward.

So, where does change begin? Where do the thoughts of change come in? Change does not come from the center of your brain. Change comes from the margins, it is called peripheral vision. The way change starts is that it is just an idea, just a notion, just a thought that says “Something needs to change.” So the question is, do you have margin?

Whenever you have an idea, what is the first thing that you do? I’m going to tell you what the first thing is that Sam Chand does. Whenever I have an idea, whenever something pops in my mind, my first thought is NOT; Do we have enough money? Do we have the facilities? Do we have the technology? My first thought is none of those things. My first thought is; Who else can help me?

Annual Performance Evaluation. Nobody likes going to them and nobody likes doing them. A total waste of time. Basically what you are doing is you are collecting all the things you have wanted to say, placed in some kind of file, and now you are going to bring me in and unload it all on me. May I recommend something else? How about coaching people through the process? How? Let me tell you.

Is failure something that has to be punished? Is failure something that is fatal? Is failure something you drill people about? Or can failure be seen as a learning block?…

Is failure something that has to be punished? Is failure something that is fatal? Is failure something you drill people about? Or can failure be seen as a learning block? Can failure be seen as “How do we not repeat that again?” Failure is written in pencil, it can be erased. Failure is never fatal. Failure is never a person, only an event or a thing. My question to you, “How do you value failure?”

Legacy. One of these days you and I will be gone. And the question will become not only how you lived but how you will live on through others. Legacy is not what you leave behind but legacy is who you leave behind. Behind me is one of the five buildings that changed hundreds of future and present leaders, all because of legacy.
