5 leadership realities

  1. 1. 5 Leadership Realities of today For The Leader in “YOU”
  2. 2. 1. Best leaders are best managers of situations they face.  You may not be interested in “CRISIS” but “CRISIS” is always interested in you. 2. LEADERSHIP is not just about power & position, today it is all about responsibility.  The most important wings on an airplane are on the pilot. You are the pilot of your team. Buck stops at you. 3. LEADERSHIP is about your CHARACTER.  Your toughest moments truly reveal what you are made of – STEEL or GLASS. 4. LEADERSHIP is about a CLEAR VISION & inline ACTIONS on that.  Your clear purpose & aligned actions in an organization is more important than anything else. 5. LEADERS must be an OPPORTUNIST (Not such a bad word)  By the time you realize the time to act, it might be already too little too late.
  3. 3. The Opportunist Conversations of a different kind between a Realist,Pessimist, Optimist & an Opportunist The Pessimist (Glass is half empty) – I will have to take water multiple times to be satisfied.The water should have been filled to the top.– The Critic The Optimist (Glass is half full) – I am happy that there is atleast water to drink & I will drink it to quench my thirst.– The Satisfied The Realist (Glass is not shaped right & the water source is not perfect) – I would like to suggest we change the glass or the water source or better the speed at which we fill water.I think “we can do better.” – The Auditor The Opportunist – Dear Pessimist,Optimist & Realist,I am very sorry friends,while you were busy complaining about the glass,the water source & what not,I just picked up the glass & drank from it.– The Leader
