5 Leadership Realities of today
The Leader in “YOU”
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.
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
