Using his in-depth study of the building of the 2,000-year-old Ifugao Rice Terraces, which has been named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lloyd believes that great leaders are shaped and defined by three crucial steps they make for their people: (1) stepping in to inspire, teach, and equip them; (2) stepping back to permit, evaluate, and mentor them; and (3) stepping up to explore, strategize, and innovate with them. He argues that these three steps are founded mainly on trust, collaboration, and humanity.
