Leaders Under Managers

Leaders Under Managers | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
It's when the chips are down that true leaders rise to the surface. In struggle, confusion, and challenge, real leaders take stock of the situation and lead others through the chaos. For some reason, the others are happy to follow.... - OK but then, they should also manage... for me, it's a dilemma of who has the right size "coat"... IMHO, on each and every level you can (should) have leadership qualities but also, management qualities... the proportion is different on the different levels, the need for some visionary qualities (always with a bit of salt...) is growing upwards... - Henry Mintzberg has written a lot about this and he's not too bad... :-))

The Truth about First Impressions | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
First impressions are an interesting phenomenon. Just about every article or book chapter on this topic will tell you that first impressions are extremely important, so you have to ensure that you always make a great one. - I'm happy with this post... e.g. I was participating in this LinkedIn months-long forum-saga about the elevator-speech of coaches (my was something like that: the coach is bringing the good news that the client has all the resources he/she needs just has to be reminded...) but I have had always this "what a big fuss about this... it's soooo imbalanced compared to "normal" life situations" feeling where, of course, count a lot the very first impressions but you always have occasions to come back... - Good...

Ignoring the Inbox - A New Morning Mantra

Ignoring the Inbox - A New Morning Mantra | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
E-mail is like a drug, once addicted it is very hard to start your day without the initial fix, and business owners are no different to anyone else when it comes to satisfying this nasty habit. If you are like most people, the minute you switch on for a new business day, the first thing you will do is loose yourself in whatever distractions are contained in your e-mail inbox, and the last thing you will do is think about the negative impact this may be having on your productivity. This excellent article, highlights the downside of starting your day in your inbox, and it suggests three things all business owners and managers should do each day before checking their e-mail. - Hmmm... Difficult... Anyhow, it's worth of a trial...
