Ultimately, you can choose to let your past define you and confine you, or you can choose to learn, grow, and leave it behind you.  Just like the seasons, you have the ability to change.  In many ways, you already have.

Leadership: If you want more – give more

Leadership: If you want more  – give more | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

How can leadership be about giving more to get more?  Early in my career I had two questions about this when my mentors shared this philosophy with me.

 

Leaders, if you want more  - give more.  It’s just like Bob Burg said in his book, The Go-Giver,“Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.”

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, December 29, 2013 5:31 PM

This article rings true to me.  Build others up to take your place and in truth, you have built yourself up more as a leader.  Zig Ziglar says, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want” 

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, December 30, 2013 1:36 PM

The difference between selfless and selfish is a couple of letters...yet the difference between a selfless and selfish person is worlds apart.  "Then I heard the great Zig Ziglar say, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want” "

The 30-Second Rule: How to Create Unforgettable Presentations

The 30-Second Rule:  How to Create Unforgettable Presentations | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Whether your audience is your boss, your banker, a small team of direct reports, a ballroom full of conference attendees, or thousands of people worldwide connected via teleconference, your success depends on being able to make a great presentation.


Great presentations are well-organized, flow logically from one idea to another, and ultimately leave the audience leave feeling rewarded and enlightened. All well and good, but if you don’t hook your audience in the first 30 seconds, all your careful preparation may be for naught. Therefore you have to begin with a bang! A television commercial has only 30 seconds to grab your attention; the same is true for you and your presentation.

According to a 2011 Workforce Management study, since the Great Recession, 55 percent of employees have seen their workload increase, and 27 percent say it’s doubled.

"...Giving people self-confidence is by far the most important thing a leader can do..."

Denise Lombardo's curator insight, November 23, 2013 6:47 PM

Lots of resonance here - in terms of working as a leader with other teachers, and in terms of teaching and providing feedback to students. The notion of postivies plus constructive criticism and honesty aligns with formative assessment principles, too, eg Medals and Missions (Petty).

Why Is the Soft Stuff So Hard?

Why Is the Soft Stuff So Hard? | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

We know that the brain is exquisitely tuned to social relationships, shaped by and shaping our relationships with others from birth onwards. A number of evolutionary psychologists maintain that our brain is proportionately the largest of all mammals because of the need to maintain relationships with large numbers of people. So why should relationship issues be so hard and what can the neurosciences tell us that might help?

I've always felt that the labelling of relationship management as 'soft stuff' is wholly inaccurate, as it has never been so and never will be!

 

Managing your relationships as a leader and manager has always been tough, complex and often downright hazardous! So 'soft stuff' is a complete oxymoron! However, here's a useful article to explore why is is so hard just that little bit further!

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, November 30, 2013 2:51 PM
