Leadership by examples
Strong Vision: focuses upto 5kms from the airFocused: when an eagle sites prey even a rodent from this distance, he narrows his focus on it & sets out to get itStorm loving: the eagle uses the wings of the storm to rise & is pushed up higher. Once it finds the wing of the storm, the eagle stops flapping and uses the pressure of the ranging storm to soar the clouds and glide. This gives the eagle an opportunity to rest its wingsTeacher/Trainer: during the time of the training young ones to fly, the mother eagle throws the eaglets out of the nest and because they are scared they jump into the nest again. next, she throws them out and takes off the soft layers of the nest, leaving the thorns bare. When the scared eaglets jump into the nest again, they are pricked by thorns. Shrieking & bleeding they jump out again this time wondering why the mother & father eagle who love them so much are torturing them . Next , mother eagle pushes them of the cliff into the air. As they shrink in air, father eagle flies out and picks them up on his back before they fall & brings them back to the cliff. This goes on for sometime until they start flapping their wings. They get excited knowing that they can fly & not fall. The father & mother eagle supports them with their wings.
Survives Change: The Eagle can live upto 70 years, but to reach this age, it has to take one of the hardest decisions in life. When it crosses the age of 40 its long & flexible talons can no longer grab prey which serves as food. Its long & sharp beak becomes bent. Its old aged & heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, become stuck to its chest and make it difficult to fly. Then the eagle is left with only two options : die or go thru a painful process of CHANGE which lasts 150 days, the process requires that the eagle fly to a mountain top & sits on its nest, there the eagle knocks its beak against a rock until its plucks it out. After plucking it out the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow and then it will pluck out its talons. When its new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its old-aged feathers and keeps doing it until he is completely bare and after 5 months, the eagle takes its famous flight of re-birth and lives for another 30 years
A Leader should have a Vision & remain focused no matter what the obstacle comes A Leader should use Storms of its lifes (obstacles, troubles etc.) to rise to greater heights It is very important for a leader to teach its people, if a leader has to teach them the hard way, a leader must. Yet, a leader must be protective of them until they learn Difficulties are like divine surgery Many times in order to survive we have to start a change process. Only freed from the past burden can we take advantage of the present
There is always a wild horse in us and one in which we, as a person or leader needs to tame or put it under control. That wild horse can be our emotions and feelings. The leader should be emotionally stable, and in fact, possess high emotional quotient (EQ). the leader should have “the uncontaminated heart” [purity of heart, care for his or her people] and the clarity of mind [to set goals and get the tasks or job done].
A business can flourish similar to a team of strong horses, running purposefully in unison. It is worthy to note that horses also have a great sense of balance, the unconscious sense of where the body and limbs are at all times. In this aspect, leaders need to be high in self-monitoring, with a good sense of balance and flexibility, mixing with all kinds of people. Having a good sense of balance and a wide area of interests, a leader would not be too rigid, lop-sided and easily stressed.
The tortoise has a hard shell protecting its inner body, and this makes the tortoise resilience. Giving a hostile environment, the tortoise strategically protects itself inside the shell patiently awaits the next opportunity to venture out and explore the surroundings. Likewise, a leader should be steadfast and preserve; the leader is often a determined and resilient person, weathering crises or effecting turnarounds of businesses. It represents the virtue of patience in leadership.
Even monkeys at times fall from the trees”. Leaders also make mistakes, and it is good that leaders learn from these mistakes.
