Leadership Lessons From Fathers: Five Focus Points
- Without a clear vision, you have no goal to attain.
- There is no finish line: we always can do better
- The possibilities are limitless: you always can better the world and the lives of those around you
- Yes there are rules and they need to be followed
- Rules limit your power: Executive power? Omni-current issue. Think about it twice whenever making decisions
- Guidelines are the safeguard to failure: Ethics are crucial to leadership
- Bend but do no break: The Art of Leadership
- Adjust, adjust and adjust again: Do not stiffen your business in "frozen" rules, thought and approach
- Grow with your team: Leaders learn from their teams and followers, they share and communicate
SENSE OF HUMANITY
- My best lesson in Leadership: Humanity. You don't have to be harsh, soft, or religious. Just be humane. It is enough.
- Learn from wolves "leaders"? here. Wolves have more "humane" traits than portrayed: how do great leaders treat their junior team members?
- Make humanity your guardrail. Don't fall into the traps of "leadership power." But stay focused, be consistent and persistent.
- Focus keeps you in check. It helps you make sense of lows and highs
- Focus is aligned with consistency: deviations happen, but they should be the exception rather than the rule
- Focus is what makes the big and small pictures great and "picture perfect". Persistence will get you there. Differenciate persistence from stubborness and lack of logic and objectivity.
