7 Leadership Secrets

PMA Added Gray Lawrence

"When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money… but that’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact–and that is everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you." -Steve Jobs

7 Secrets I Learnt From The Leadership Pill by Ken Blanchard

1. Leadership is not just what happens when you are there. It’s what happens when you are not there.

This is a very useful distinction and should become an outcome for anyone who wants to lead. Team that functions even if the leader is not around is something unique and requires a different level of skills. The next points will give couple of ideas how to get there. A great leader builds their people. The better your people, the more free time you have.

2. Profit is the applause you get for taking care of your customers and creating a motivating environment for people.

Isn’t it an interesting twist in perception and sequence? There are so many organisations that do exactly opposite. This model helps to remove from constantly focusing on just getting a quick financial gain that looks good in a short term, but on the other hand it can strongly damage the two most important parts of your organisations: your customers and your team.

3. Leadership is not something you do to people, it is something you do with them.

Simple but powerful truth. If you are setting off for a team leading journey, remember to take your team with you. Communicate and involve. Simple but also so often forgotten.

4. The key to effective leadership is the relationship you build with your team.

An extension from the previous points. The relationship you build with your team should be the way how you judge your success as a leader.

5. Sharing the big picture puts everyone on the same page.

Effective communication will always be the key leadership skill while building a team. A clear vision gives the strong sense of direction, or even a sense of excitement and a powerful drive, if properly communicated.

6. You will go a lot further if you stop to refuel.

That is something I must admit I have been guilty of. It is so crucially important to pause, relax and change your perception with different activities, different people. So take time for sport, short trips, dancing, reading watching movies, hiking etc. If you are scoring and winning take time to celebrate, if you are missing your target and not really getting what you want, find time to reflect and get some distance to gain new perspective. Albert Einstein put it nicely: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”

7. The highest achievement of a leader is winning respect and trust of your team.

Again, I love what Ken Blanchard is doing here. Measure your success of leadership not by financial numbers but trust and respect. These two ingredients will lay a solid foundation that will be a springboard for long lasting financial results.

Hope these 7 nuggets from Ken Blanchard take your leadership skills to the max!

Here’s To Your Success

Money is kind of a base subject. Like water, food, air and housing, it affects everything yet for some reason the world of academics thinks it’s a subject below their social standing. Robert Kiyosaki

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way. Robert Kiyosaki

Just Be… A Timeless Treasure

Topics: Being Present, Guidance, Mindfulness, Possibility

MaryAnn-DAmbrosio

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

While mystics, philosophers and seekers of truth have been pondering this for thousands of years… the mystery of life was unceremoniously revealed to me one Saturday afternoon..

What began as an ordinary weekend of classes became extraordinary. An unannounced curriculum change opened our class to a special session. Richard, a third year student skilled at shamanic work, had been selected to take us first year students on a shamanic journey.

I was hesitant about visiting “invisible worlds” beyond ordinary reality. The thought of venturing to “Lower World” to meet and receive a gift from our power animal was scary. Suddenly a familiar inner voice whispered, “You’ll be fine. Trust the process and your inner guidance.” Instantly, meeting my power animal intrigued me and I began to wonder about the gift.

Richard prepared us for Lower World by describing the process and landscape. During the journey he would beat a drum and stated that when we saw an animal, we should ask if it was our power animal. If the animal responded “yes”, remember to ask for the gift. The journey began….

I stepped out of the tunnel into “Lower World,” and saw reddish-brown earth, tall trees, and very few animals. In fact, several minutes passed before seeing an animal that said no, it was not my power animal. There was however, this little bee that suddenly appeared three times during the adventure and then continued to follow me. Much to my surprise, the bee said, “YES” when asked if it was my power animal.

Upon returning from the journey, three classmates eagerly shared their experience describing elaborate adventures with their bear, dolphin, and eagle power animals. Initially, I felt out of place. My tiny “bee” didn’t hold a candle to the larger animals. And yet, when Richard inquired about my power animal and the gift, amazingly – everything clicked.

I recalled the bee saying, “Just Bee” as the gift. Interesting… nothing other than the bee. The bee, a symbol of accomplishing the impossible, became a powerful reminder of anything is possible. Aerodynamically, the bee’s body is too large for its wings and should not be able to fly.

A second later, I realized the gift contained within itself a deeper meaning. The bee presented just “be” as a timeless treasure. Now, it made perfect sense.

Just be… here, in the now – fully present!

Be present, it’s the gift you give to others! When you’re fully present with someone they feel acknowledged.

Just be… in the moment.

This practice allows access to unlimited creativity and opportunities that would go unnoticed if thinking about a past or future event!

Just be… yourself.

Everyone else is taken. Be who you are fully – without pretense. Showing up as you truly matters!

“Points of Power” (III)

Change your expectation and appreciation and the world changes

From Rhonda Byrne “The Power & The Secret”

http://www.thesecret.tv/

· Everything in the universe is magnetic and everything as a magnetic frequency, including your thoughts and feelings.

· Whatever you feel, wither good or bad determines your frequency, and you attract the people, events and circumstances that are on the same frequency .

· Change your frequency at any time by changing how you feel, and everything around you will change because you are on a new frequency.

· If something negative has happened in your life, you can change it. It is never too late, because you can always change the way you feel.

· Many people put their feelings on automatic pilot; their feelings are reactions to what happens to them. However, they don’t realise that it’s their feelings that are the cause of what happens to them.

· To change anything- whether it’s the circumstances of money, health, relationships or any subject what so ever -you have to change the way you feel.

· Blame, criticism, finding fault, and complaining are all forms of negativity, and all of them bring back nothing but strife

· Throw out of your vocabulary words like terrible, horrible, disgusting and awful. Use more words like fantastic, amazing, fabulous, brilliant and wonderful.

· Even if you give 51 per cent good thoughts and good feelings, you have tipped the scales of your life.

Positive Thinking by itself deos not work

· Every day is an opportunity for a new life. Every day you stand at the tipping point of your life. And on anyone day you can change the future – through the way that you feel.

“This physical environment is your playground of expansion and, without it, the Universe could not expand in the way that it does.” Abraham

“Follow your bliss and the Universe will open doors where there were walls.” Joseph Bliss

“If you replace one negative thought with a positive one, you are going to feel great things begin to take shape. If you replace ALL of your negative thoughts… imagine the possibilities!” Dr. Steve G. Jones
