Do You Have What It Takes to be an Effective Leader?

What Would We Get If We Asked Everyone Who Writes About Leadership To Offer Up A Definition?

Probably need a new wing in the library of congress, don’t you think?

IS IT POSSIBLE TO DEFINE LEADERSHIP?

For some, it’s everything and anything that has to do with influencing others.

It’s communication.

It’s achieving accountability.

For others, it’s a body of work built around values and character and timeless qualities of integrity, passion, respect, et. al.

Do you have a definition that works for you?

Sticks & Stones? Are You Sure Words Never Hurt You?

It’s been several years since I wrote this original article, but with the onslaught of the Internet … the 2 Billion Facebook users posting about every conceivable issue … and many which aren’t … you sensitivity to what people say about you might need a booster shot.

Our usual response is that it’s none of THEIR business, but as you’ll learn from the Most Beautiful Woman in the World, it’s really none of YOUR business.

This simple concept will help you keep the invisible critics off the battlefield, so get your booster shot in just a few minutes to strengthen your resolve.

This Has Been My Universal Experience: No Momentum? No Results!

How often have you started a project which ran out of steam?

It’s not because the idea is no longer valid or the results desirable … but because other priorities jumped in line … energy was diverted to new projects … and the original project died on the vine.

Isn’t it interesting that Sir Isaac Newton’s First Law of Motion perfectly predicted this?

“An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.”

In other words … if an object is in motion, it tends to stay in motion unless acted upon by another force which slows it down … like unexpected obstacles, new priorities, emergencies … really, anything that gets in the way.

I’ve described this phenomenon in greater detail in Why the Lack of Momentum is the Most Lethal Force in Your Business because I want you to create and harness the concept of Momentum. You’ll find that while it’s invisible to the touch, it’s paramount to the energy that’s needed to successfully complete … almost anything.

So, the next time you find a project flailing about … and its energy dissipating … be sure to consider what you can do to jumpstart that project and renew its energy
