The most recent blog focused on the Need to Learn.
Here is a short segment of the article:
Every time we read a book, take a course, attend a conference, work collaboratively with others, use our creativity skills, solve a problem, resolve a conflict, improve the quality of our organizations, or communicate with others, we increase the return on investment in our personal growth and on the organizations for which we work. Knowledge management is cost effective and increases cost efficiency.
The blog is thought provoking and he goes on to cover other subjects related to leadership. He offers a segment of Leadership Is An Art by Max DePree and lists the ideals of helping a leader to define reality. Here are just a few:
- No matter how good a job you do, you can still lose your job.
- Not all team members do the work.
- It is your good managers that make you like your job.
- Most leaders don’t change. The weaknesses remain. Play to the person’s strengths.
- Don’t expect politicians to value what you do. Their priorities are not your priorities.
- Resilience is the secret weapon of leadership.
- People don’t want change and they use budget considerations to justify their resistance.
