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.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, May 6, 2014 6:55 PM


Making the right decisions consistently, and avoiding the howlers that come back to haunt a business, should be a key objective for all business owners.


All decision making comes with a certain level of risk, and part of mitigating the risks involved in day to day decision making, is for a business owner to be able to determine why they make decisions that are not always optimal for the success of their business.


This excellent article, suggests that keeping a decision log is a tried and proven way of consistently making sound decisions, and it offers a four step process to follow when conducting regular reviews of recent decision making activity.
