Leadership Nuggets

Some nuggets of wisdom I learned in my leadership quest, that shaped my life and helped me not only become a better leader but also a better person:

  • If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go with team
  • Right people, in the right seat – Jim Collins
  • A leader’s success depends on the success of his or her followers
  • Do your best, not more, not less – Zen philosophy
  • Intrinsic motivation is the key to bringing the best out of everyone
  • Communication, particularly information sharing, is the basic building block of trust
  • Your presence sends a vibe, which either attracts or repels others
  • Focus on being helpful, than being right
  • Employee engagement factors: Autonomy, Complexity, and Gratification – Daniel Pink
  • Communication: Hint is hardest to decode and easiest to refuse. It is speaker’s responsiblity to speak clearly and unambiguously to communicate ideas
  • Listening: Encourage others to talk about themselves
  • You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him to discover it himself – Galileo
  • Make suggestions and let others reach their own conclusions – Dale Carnegie
  • If you cannot explain it to your grandmother, you don’t really know it – Einstein
