Leadership Mantra: Noise.

Leadership Mantra: Noise. | Surviving Leadership Chaos |

This noise who changing our life.


About what noise are we talking about here? There is talk about the discontinuous noise in our head, which is an integral part of our daily live.


Have you ever paid attention, if so, what was his tone? It was a pleasant tone, beautiful, positive or rather, unpleasant, ugly and negative?

donhornsby's insight:

My favorite people are direct and not afraid to share things about themselves that might even make them look bad. In doing so they convey a sense of humility, honesty, and vulnerability that work to lower people's defenses. If you can do that, you're well on your way to engaging with them.

The Learning Factor's curator insight, September 26, 2013 7:36 PM

By nature children are curious, but we lose much of our inquisitiveness as we age. Yet it's such a vital trait, especially in business. Curiousity drives you to continuously learn about your industry, understand your customers, and create innovative products.

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership | Surviving Leadership Chaos |

Leaders' primary objective is to empower others to make decisions and take actions that are aligned with the organization’s vision, purpose, and strategy. These nuances are the softer side of leadership, beyond the technical skills that you have already mastered.


Leadership is the "eighth wonder of the world." It is better seen and felt than defined and said. It’s easy to intellectualize, but elusive to actualize.
