Challenge yourself to be who you know you are capable of being.  Challenge yourself to follow through – to live what you preach, to walk your talk.  Don’t worry about how slowly you feel you’re heading towards your goals, or how many roadblocks you find, or how many detours you’re forced to take.  As long as you try.

Far too many people in positions of leadership remain unwilling or unable to make the changes necessary to create a healthy thriving enterprise capable of enduring. These so-called leaders are lacking the character, the courage, or the ability to do the right thing. They cling to the status quo rather than subject themselves to the challenges of growth, development and change.

The Hardest Word: Why Saying No Is Key To Your Long-Term Success

The Hardest Word: Why Saying No Is Key To Your Long-Term Success | Career Growth & Leadership | Scoop.it
It was pretty much a typical Friday at Ogilvy Toronto. The whole creative department was crazy busy, when another big project dropped out of the sky. Scanning the stressed-out teams overdue for a decent weekend break, this was not the best news ever.

How you deliver an unwelcome no is the difference between being the messenger they want to shoot and a person who’s appreciated for saving everyone from a bad decision. Painting a vivid picture of the consequences of saying yes can help open people’s eyes to the other side of the question. Make them feel the full weight of yes. (It’s a step most of us don’t think to take in the heat of the moment, but my art director could have stopped me cold with vivid description of C-minus designs limping into the client’s boardroom.) Then be part of the solution. If you have a different approach to the problem, share it. If you don’t, pitch in to figure it out.

Relationship counselors would tell you that in order to make the most of your personal connections, you need to foster a human, authentic relationship with your friends and loved ones. Why stop at home or in your social circle? For your teams to function at their highest potential, their leadership (that’s you) needs to be equally human and authentic. By extending trust, through a display of a variety of traits, you’ll earn their trust. With that in mind, strive to improve on your ability to be…

James Allen's insight:

I almost agree with all six steps.  The only one I have trouble with is Don't Plan, Just Do.  I don't necessarily think it is a bad thing to plan your career. I believe that hav some insight into the direction, and possible deviations from the plan has helped me a great deal.  Yes, it is rare that anything goes as planned, but it is nice to know there are alternatives when you have deviate from you plan.

The 4 Things All of Your Employees Should Be Learning on the Job

John Michel's curator insight, July 20, 2013 9:27 AM

It seems to me that the potential for developing high levels of employee engagement would be at its maximum at the time of hire and during the beginning parts of the employer-employee relationship.  Since a recent study by Corporate Executive Board revealed that employee performance can improve three times as much by learning on the job, rather than off, it would seem to make sense for employers to build training and education designed to encourage new employees to “bond” with the brand of the business, early on.
