Fidan Aliyeva's insight:

Leadership tricks and the advantage of becoming an essentialist
Fidan Aliyeva's insight:

How successful are you with ticking all the boxes on every profile every day? Do you manage to do what you have planned? Or there are still some bullet points you decided to skip for tomorrow?

Time pressure. Speed of life. Tons of information. And we all need some quiet time to think as well. How do you cope?

Leadership and Influence Part 1

Leadership and Influence Part 1 | Leadership Primer | Scoop.it
Article reviewing the links between leadership and influence
Fidan Aliyeva's insight:

“ They key to successful leadership today is Influence, not Authority” Kenneth Blanchard.

I assume most of us are familiar with the word “Influencer”. I became acquainted with it a couple of years ago, through the scope of its current meaning, in light of all the digital eco-system we live in nowadays. Audience, followers, social media strategy, digital etiquette, expertise – this all builds up the world of influencer, its market share.

For me, it’s both exciting and challenging, the idea of being an Influencer and the way you can become one. I would say that expertise, self-discipline, focus, passion and egularity are one of the main features of strategy in order to become an Influencer. Passion will make it all come true much easier as well as leadership skills.
