Be Original And Flourish As A Leader in 2015

Be Original And Flourish As A Leader in 2015 | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it
“The wise man lives off the fool, and the fool lives off his job.” This old Spanish proverb is timeless – yet many leaders in the workplace lack the wisdom to create enough impact to be both successful and significant in their work.

How often do you feel foolish because you allow others to dictate your leadership style and approach? Leadership is about wisdom – giving you the know-how to avoid being foolishly taken advantage of – and then sharing that wisdom to help others learn and grow. Wise leaders are the ones whose presence, authenticity and the manner in which they communicate and engage with others are genuine and unique. They quickly earn respect – but realize it takes originality, creativity and uncommon thinking to sustain it.
