Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


Leadership Lesson #2: One Word

The most convicting stance we'll ever take as a leader may just be one word long.

Stances like:

  • No.
  • Don't.
  • Together.
  • Now.
  • Stop.

With one word stances, there's no confusing what we mean. Our followers and our community doesn't have to decipher what we said, figure out how serious we are, or interpret our answer through any kind of lens.

These stances are hard to take, for sure. But they're also the ones that matter most.

Let your leadership story be short and watch as those you lead understand it more clearly and commit to its reality.
