PRAGMATIC INSIGHTS FROM THE WISE

"How much of our days are consumed in the pressures of what needs doing? How much do we lose of ourselves in the process?

We must not confuse leadership with position and place; we must not confuse it with structures, systems, tools and techniques.

These are not what earn you the respect and commitment of your people. What earns you respect in the end is whether you are what you say you are and whether what you are embodies what they want to become or follow.

So what’s it like being led by you?"

~ The Academy of Chief Executives, UK: 'Rising to the New Leadership Challenges';
