Becoming Natural

Whenever leaders face a problem, they automatically evaluate it, measure it, pick it apart, and begin solving it. In time this becomes the natural thing to do.

Only Human

Only Human

Those that hold the label “leader” must not only know their strengths and blind spots, capability and limitations, potential and Achilles’ heel but also their current frame of mind. Why?  Because leaders are human and can just as easily hinder progress as they can works towards creating it.

Multiple Directions

Multiple Directions

Everything that happens around us does so in the context of a bigger picture.  Doesn’t it make sense to start looking at things from a variety of perspectives?  We need not only to pay attention to what is happening in the moment, but to discern where we have just come from and in what direction we are heading.

Seeing What Others Do Not

Seeing What Others Do Not

Just as the blood flows through our veins and keeps us alive and well, leadership vision is the lifeblood of any business.  It is what gives us the strength to take the next step forward into areas where others fear to tread. It provides meaning to the reoccurring challenges and trials that we encounter moment by moment.  It allows us to see beyond the fog of doubt or mist of apprehension.

Having vision is where great leaders earn their stripes of leadership, and such leadership makes all the difference.  Leadership is more than just having the ability to influence or manipulate others.  It is about reminding people of what they are attempting to accomplish, the value and character behind it, and why it matters.  Vision is imagining the best possible outcome, reaching out, and grasping it.

Changing Directions

Changing Directions

Leaders can maintain direction, but often they can’t change it. Systems and processes can do only so much. To move people in a new direction you need influence.

I Really Do Not Know

I Really Do Not Know

Great leaders are eager to gain input and are not afraid to admit when they do not know something.  They surround themselves with bright people and seek input in areas where they need expertise.

Here Is The Difference

Here Is The Difference

The best way to test whether a person can lead rather than just manage is to ask him to create positive change.

Of True Value

Of True Value

It is one thing to communicate to people because you believe you have something of importance or value to say.  It is another thing to communicate with people because you believe they are important and have value.

Live The Message

Live The Message

Perhaps the most important thing that you can do as a leader/boss/ mentor/advisor/counselor is to walk the talk and practice what you preach.  You want credibility?  That’s how to earn it!
