Garth Sanginiti's insight:

"“One of the most important things managers can do is set clear goals for a project. Letting people know where it is they're going, and why it matters in the grand scheme of things. At the same time, managers need to give people some autonomy in what they're doing."

Bruce Lee and five things an entrepreneur can learn from his quotes - Life Beyond Numbers

Bruce Lee and five things an entrepreneur can learn from his quotes - Life Beyond Numbers | Leadership | Scoop.it
Bruce Lee was an enterprise in himself. Bruce Lee teaches you how to make the best use of what you have around. He teaches you that if you can start believing in yourself, you can always bring out the best in you.

Via Ken Donaldson
Garth Sanginiti's insight:

"It’s easy to set a goal. However, to achieve it, we need to give in a lot more. We need to hone our skills to achieve what we want. Focus. Dedication. Perseverance. Self belief. There will be innumerable times when we will be forced to divert our mind, withdraw ourselves by the surrounding circumstances. If we don’t get it right the first time, try again. Try again. Try again. And the one who will keep at it will see the final victory and will rise above the rest."

Surprises Are the New Normal; Resilience Is the New Skill

Surprises Are the New Normal; Resilience Is the New Skill | Leadership | Scoop.it
The difference between winners and losers is how they handle losing.
Garth Sanginiti's insight:

"Resilience is the ability to recover from fumbles or outright mistakes and bounce back. But flexibility alone is not enough. You have to learn from your errors. Those with resilience build on the cornerstones of confidence — accountability (taking responsibility and showing remorse), collaboration (supporting others in reaching a common goal), and initiative (focusing on positive steps and improvements)."

9 Simple Ways of Building Resilience - General Leadership

9 Simple Ways of Building Resilience - General Leadership | Leadership | Scoop.it
Building resilience is what allows you to keep your emotions from hijacking your good reason, equipping you to detach yourself from the immediacy of what’s occurring in order to gain a broader, positive perspective.
Garth Sanginiti's insight:

"Within each person there is a capacity for resilience – the ability to turn loss into gain; to transform tragedy into triumph; to choose to be strengthened by adversity. In effect, resilience is an attitude built on one’s internal belief that no matter what you may be facing today, it need not dominate the direction of your life tomorrow."

Practical Tips for Productive Living

Via John Michel
Garth Sanginiti's insight:

"If you do what you have always done, you will get the same results you have been getting.  If you want to stunt your growth and feel stuck in the same place forever, keep making excuses.  If, on the other hand, you want to stop feeling trapped, you have to start doing things that make you uncomfortable, things you aren’t very good at.  You have to streeeetch yourself."

John Michel's curator insight, July 12, 2013 11:54 AM

Regardless of your age or stature, life is always filled with unanswered questions.  It is the courage to ask these questions and adventurously seek the answers that continues to give life meaning.  Have patience with everything that remains unresolved in your heart.  Try to love the unanswered questions themselves.  Do not demand all the answers; they cannot be given to you because you have to live through them.  It is a matter of experiencing everything.  Only when you do will you gradually, perhaps without even noticing it, find yourself arriving at the answers you seek.

CHIPS Articles: Air Force Brig. Gen John E. Michel - Encouraging Innovation, Empowerment, Trust and Collaboration | Leadership | Scoop.it
Garth Sanginiti's insight:

"What I’m suggesting is that true innovation, creativity and growth are unleashed only after people’s imaginations are activated. This will not happen by accident. As leaders, we have to intentionally take into account how others think and feel and engage them in the process of promoting positive change. And the first tangible step in doing so is demonstrating to your people you are willing to go first, to lead the way in tackling the challenges before you, setting an example worth emulating in the process."

Humility – or how important do you take yourself? | Wisdom for Future Leaders | Leadership | Scoop.it

This is an important question. Have we become so self important now that we have a platform for our egos?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 8, 2013 5:25 PM

Humility and humus share a common root.

John Michel's curator insight, July 8, 2013 11:34 PM

Dropping our self-importance and replacing it through humility leads to inner silence. We are able to see the world with clear eyes. And we see ourselves more clearly as we are. We no longer compare to others and we see others as equal. Humble people don’t see the own success as most important. They help others to become successful, too.
