Except: What’s the difference between someone with a good idea and a person who can transform their ideas into real impact? To tackle the world’s biggest problems, we need to be able to identify and support the people who are capable of creating lasting change. 

And what we’ve found time and again is: Resilience matters most.

Resilient leaders have three key characteristics:

Grit: Short-term focus on tasks at hand, a willingness to slog through broken systems with limited resources, and pragmatic problem-solving skills.Courage: Action in the face of fear and embracing the unknown.Commitment: Long-term optimism and focus on big-picture goals.Read more now....

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 24, 2013 4:51 PM

These tips can be summed up by pointing out that great leaders realize that they must continually improve. Consequently, they must remain open to others and new perspectives while continuing to clearly convey in words and actions what they value and believe to be important for the future of their business. 

taniaATenthuse.me's comment, July 25, 2013 5:01 AM
That is so true Frank. True leaders are role models and should always seek improvements to benefit themselves as well as the people they lead.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, December 20, 2013 6:42 PM


The quality of the leadership a business owner provides to a business, will have a major impact on its progress, and improving their leadership skills should be a constant endeavour for all owners.


Understanding what type of leader you are, and identifying the areas you need to work on, is a great starting point for anyone.


This excellent article, identifies three of seven key leadership types, and it offers suggestions for how to improve your leadership if you are one of these types.

Jeremy Barton's curator insight, December 24, 2013 5:15 AM

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, September 16, 2013 9:46 AM

This is one of the first resources to actively use digital tools to upgrade the minutes before instruction starts.  In my professional experience this would be very useful.  I think this is a new area that can be developed further to build in opportunities for students to use technology to deepen their learning.  What do you think?  Would you use this new resource?
