Words of wisdom: Leadership

The ultimate leader is one who is willing to develop people to the point that they eventually surpass him or her in knowledge and ability


Leaders create and enable a strong vision to ensure success

With 2012 swiftly coming to a close and the endless opportunities of 2013 almost upon us there has never been a better time to take a step back and reflect on the years successes and challenges.

As Yvonne Wood, Dead Beautiful said

“Sometimes, you have to look back in order to understand the things that lie ahead.”

The benefit in this wisdom is that understanding what lies ahead is the start of creating a vision.

Remember one thing


Make sure your team has a clear and aligned #vision for 2013!

3 tips to ensure this clarity and alignment occurs

  1. Communicate your standards and expectations clearly. Human beings want high standards and this clarity creates the framework to which everybody can work
  2. Let the team create the vision. Human Beings are more inclined to buy-into something which they have ownership of (Responsibility)
  3. Give the team authority to take action on bringing the #vision to life.


Do the right thing, reap rewards
