About leadership
I strongly believe in a new type of management style. Not the control-and-command style, form which Managers are derived, but working together based on trust, empowerment and cooperation. Leaders in stead of Managers. All part of my philosophy call 'Qualtism'.

Vision is never an afterthought for a leader

Vision is never an afterthought for a leader | About leadership | Scoop.it
Need of the time is for societies to be led by conscious leaders

 

Dubai: Visionary leaders don’t need wealth and status as a means of success, they need inner wisdom and they need to be the hero of their own story.

Compassion, vision, love, and focused attention are some of the qualities of inspired leadership, contrary to what the media and many historical examples may tell us.

 

Nowhere on that list, for example, are money, force, or material status. A truly great leader operates from the soul level, inspired by vision and inner wisdom as opposed to greed. Do you have what it takes to be a great leader?

 

A good story is the story of the hero’s quest, and a hero’s quest begins with a dream. This is why all great leaders are visionaries. They ask themselves mythical questions: Who am I? What do I want? Who are the heroes and mentors our society can learn from?

Leadership is about helping a shared vision to emerge. We have an abundance of technicians in our organizations and they are good at telling people what their vision is, but rarely do I see bringing it all together.

Whether we admit it or not, all of us have failed in our lives sometime or the other.Successful people take failure as a learning step in the right direction. In fact, it is good to fail sometimes, but why do we fail ?

Lack of Goals: Sometimes, in our lives and in our career, we feel that we have "hit the ceiling."  We feel that  there is no where to go further. Our lives have reached a full-stop.  Yes. It is true that this does happen. But , to succeed, we have to sense this before we reach the stage when we think that we cannot progress further and take positive steps on the next part of our lives and career.  We should have a clear vision where we want to go.  It is perfectly fine to make changes to your goals when the need arises, to think about altering your course. We can always have a list of excuses, but to succeed, we need clarity of thoughts, self discipline and a sense of self worth.

There are many reasons - the important thing is to experience and earn from it.  None of us learned to walk withoutfalling over!
