10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it

Via Daniel Watson, Claude Emond
Claude Emond's insight:

Here they are:


1. Opportunities Are Everywhere, But Few Have Eyes to See Them
2. Without Strategy, Change Is Merely Substitution, Not Evolution
3. An Entrepreneurial Attitude is the Difference Between Reinvention and Complacency
4. Continuously Refresh Your Thinking and Be Courageous Enough to Apply It
5. The Wiseman Forfeits His Fortune When He Does Not Trust Himself
6. Manage Your Leadership Brand or Someone Else Will
7. Adversity May Make or Break You – But It Primarily Reveals You
8. A Leader’s Success Is Never Won or Lost in One Instant. It Is Always a Culmination.
9. Give to Others in Faith, Not in Expectation.
10. Tell Me Who You Associate Yourself With And I Will Tell You How You Lead


The article comments briefly each of those «lessons»

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

 

#leadership #management #business

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 2014 9:14 AM

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. 

 

 

(From the article): As leaders, you must begin to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to see the opportunities previous unseen.   Leadership requires you to have circular vision and when you begin to grow complacent, you only see the obvious details before you – rather than those they lie around, beneath and beyond what you seek.  In fact, your mindset becomes stagnate because you are not stretching your perspectives enough to see more than you want to.

 

When you fall into this trap, it’s time to reshuffle the deck, and map out the internal and external factors that are influencing your thinking. You must begin to identify areas that can be improved –  such as relationships, workshop culture, networking, how you are investing in yourself (or lack thereof), etc.

 

It’s not experience, but rather opportunity that is the true mother of success.   Be more mindful about how you manage opportunity before it begins to manage you.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 2014 10:41 AM

The first lesson is a good place to begin. We become so busy we do not look up and from side-to-side. Leaders need to be present and aware of what is happening and not happening. They need to be aware of who is best served to take the reins in a given situation.

 

In School, leadership and management should be intertwined. Quite often, I found that the latter was used almost exclusively and leadership did not exist.

Leadership Courage: Creating A Culture Where People Feel Safe To Take Risks

Leadership Courage: Creating A Culture Where People Feel Safe To Take Risks | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it
The human ingenuity within any organisation are it's greatest competitive advantage. Yet according to the latest statistics, over half of todays workers are disengaged . When leaders are committed and actively working to engage, inspire and embolden – they unleash untapped potential and raise the bar not just on productivity, but on the value their organization contributes to all stakeholders.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge, Claude Emond
Claude Emond's insight:

It is not a matter of leading with courage but a matter of having the courage to lead. For me, if one does not accept to take risk and do not empower other people to exhibit genuine courage, one is not a leader. It is not unsafe to be courageous, it is the lack of courageous decisions that is unsafe.
