Is there a correlation between a messy house and a brilliant mind? Recent studies suggest that there is and here is why.
I have always used this as an excuse. Now I have proof! :-)
I'll push it even further, the leader must lead the change, and work side by side in the change and demonstrate the ultimate journey.
Uber-owned startup Otto just sent an autonomous truck on a two-hour, 120-mile journey.
Is this the starting point? How many saw this in the news, anywhere?
A number of years ago, I read a book by business guru Tom Peters about what he called Management by Walking Around, also known as MBWA. The short version of the concept begins with the premise that most managers and leaders only come out of their offices when something is wrong. Employees who are approached by a manager then become nervous, knowing there is a good chance they are about to be reprimanded or criticized for a problem or mistake.
It works if you are open, transparent and honest, however if you are looking to manipulate then it will destroy you.

Interesting, do we have limitations?
Unfortunately, we’ve all been there. The boss finds his staff stumped by a problem and decides it’s time to step in. But, instead of taking the time to get the facts straight and work alongside his team to realize a viable solution, he swoops in squawking, dumps orders riddled with formulaic advice, and then abruptly takes off, leaving them behind to clean up the mess.
Have you seen this type of manager? I have. Are you one?

The demands of leadership today require a more adaptive approach; the age of seat-of-the-pants leadership is gone. Sure, you might be able to achieve some success with a haphazard approach – but you must approach your leadership with intention, flexibility, and discipline in order to succeed repeatedly and consistently for the long haul. But that doesn’t mean discarding foundational elements that have been proven to work throughout time. In fact, there are two essential traits to leadership that are unchanging. These two stalwart elements should anchor your leadership — no matter the year, no matter the challenge — as long as you commit to developing these two most essential traits, you will be in a position to thrive. Always. The 2 essential traits that must be at the heart of your leadership approach are: Competence and Character.
I agree, what do you think?
Interesting how we can spend so much time categorizing each other to avoid talking with each other. That's a problem with society today. Great concepts but communications are critical.
As a leader, you already know you should manage your time better and deploy your resources more strategically. But to really address the problem, you need to look at the underlying dynamic that constrains leadership capacity: your margin of power.
The concept of a margin of power, designed to help professionals discover the limits of their work capacity, was developed by the educational psychologist Howard McClusky. Though he remains relatively unknown in business circles, McClusky was an influential and pioneering theorist in adult education. As a professor at the University of Michigan in the 1930s (he remained there until his death in 1982), he wondered why some adults could successfully start and complete new projects, goals, or initiatives time after time while others became quickly overwhelmed and unable to continue. His research eventually led to a simple formula that expresses a relationship between the “load” a person carries (the demands placed on them by their family, work, civic duties, and their own ambitions) and their available “power” to carry it (their own energy, skill, competence, and integrity, along with the support they get from their communities and employers).
