Leadership fruition creative metaphor

  1. 1. Leadership Fruition: Creative Metaphor My first presentation to link SlideShare with Ali Anani, PhD
  2. 2. Rare Fruits and Rare Leaders - the Commonalities Rare Fruits and Rare Leaders - the Commonalities
  3. 3. Linking SlideShare to I did a new experiment before publishing this presentation I posted most of the slides individually to LinkedIn Homepage to test the attractiveness of the topic and which slides top readers’ minds
  4. 4. served as a testing ground for the presentation
  5. 5. Leaders accept Different Perspectives Durian is the king of fruits. Some people love its smell; where as others find the smell revolting. Ali Anani, PHD
  6. 6. Leadership Fruition (3) When a longan fruit is peeled, it looks like an eyeball A leader gives ‘black: news in a transparent fashion so that they look like eyeballs Ali Anani, PHD
  7. 7. Leadership Fruition (2) Pomelo fruit has a Thick rind that is filled with sweet flesh A leader is not lured by appearances - what seems to be hard - headed staff might be full of juicy and fleshy ideas Ali Anani, PHD
  8. 8. Star apple when cut into two haves the pulp inside looks like a star A leader may find ways to identify the hidden star peroformers Ali Anani, PHD
  9. 9. Star fruit produces a star shape upon cutting its five ridges sideways A leader knows one team member doesn’t become a star. Around five team members when connecting sideways a star emerges.
  10. 10. When leaders fall what shall they become? After falling off the tree. The Marula fruit will ripen enough to attract animals that people live on
  11. 11. An example of the pre-feedback obtained from
  12. 12. Cashew Apple is a heart-shaped false fruit. Its pulp contains a toxic oil. Beware of toxic leaders who have falsely-shaped hearts, but with toxic emotions inside.
  13. 13. Cashew Apples are very sweet when ripe, but appallingly harsh when not. Moody leaders lose their taste when falling in the “mood trap”.
  14. 14. Bright scarlet Red Berries have great taste and are available in winter when no other raspberries are available. Great leaders appeal from inside and outside and you may find them when nobody else does
  15. 15. In Multiple Fruits one flower gives many fruits, which later merge into a single fruit body So are leaders, they may allow for individual growth with an eye to merge members as one team later
  16. 16. The Miracle Fruit (sweet berries) isn’t that sweet; yet it has the ability when eaten to affect the taste of even sour lemon to make it feel sweet Great leaders know how to turn sour employees and news to sweetened outcomes
  17. 17. Some hard outer pear that needs a hammer to break. However; the inside pulp is fragrant A leader might hammer hard-headed staff, if needed, knowing that they are juicy inside
  18. 18. Lemon-powered iPod – Fruit batteries Great leaders charge their organizations, and so we have: Leader-powered organizations.The better the leader is, the improved charging is
  19. 19. Buddha's Hand citron has a closed hand shape. The fingers only open when ripe. Leaders don’t point fingers unless information is ripe Leaders give incentives open-handed in due course
  20. 20. The scaly skin of the fruit suggests its name as the Snake Fruit. The easily - removable skin uncovers three white segments Leaders realize that what may look like a snake employee may not be. Leaders stock important information in more than one place
  21. 21. The Horse Apple fruit not only has a creepy appearance, but also exudes unappealing milk upon touch. Some leaders are motivation-repellent from inside and outside
  22. 22. I dedicate this presentation to Karin Hurt. Her posts on leadership are just Simply Fantastic
