Saturday Shoutout!!! Leadership

Issue 1 | Number 2 | 10 March 2012

This week I am sharing 5 stories/blogs that cover only a small aspect of the material out there on the facets of leadership. To begin othe conversation, I found this interesting quote on leadership, what does it mean for you?

“Leadership is all about enabling followers to attain meaningful goals, especially goals that are bigger than any single individual could accomplish alone. The best and most mature leadership is about selfless service, not about gaining power and control over people.”
— David Antonioni.

#1 Neuroscience of Leadership, Leadership HQ

Imagine by truly understanding and appreciating our brain, one of the most important organs in our bodies…how effective and insightful we can be in terms of all aspects of our lives.

This knowledge and learning has made them shift in their own thinking around managing distractions, creative decision making, collaboration, change and their own emotions and mindfulness. Compelling stuff!

#3 You Are Never Too Young To Be A Leader: Here’s How Forbes

Most people near the starts of their careers aren’t typically thought of as leaders in the workplace.

But with the right attitude, an observant eye and a desire to learn, any young professionals can prevail early on.

#4 What Great Leaders Know: It’s About Getting the Right People on the Bus, TLNT

One of the key components in getting any organisation back on track is getting the people thing right.  People innovate and build. As it relates to your customers, people on your staff support and serve them.  The people within any organization can do one of two things: either build value, or undermine it.  They are either on the road to drive success, or, they reduce the probability of that success.

#5 Are you called to leadership? CBS News

If you find yourself with the leadership call, there’s a lot you should be doing, even need to be doing. Read, reflect, and experiment. Notice your patterns. What do you find yourself doing? What aspects of leadership most appeal to you?
