Your Leadership Reflection

• June 16th, 2014

Col. Christopher P. Levy reminds us that every organization reflects the personality of the leader. Thus it is critical for a leader to set a good example for the team to follow. Setting an example as a leader has more power over the course of an organization than the words a leader says. The common saying, “Actions speak louder than words”, is the basis of good leadership. Your team will reflect your example. Make sure your image is one you want to see looking back at you from the mirror of your organization.

The Friendship of Leadership

• May 19th, 2014

Be the boss, sure. But overdo it, and you risk losing admiration, respect and motivation.

The dynamic leader truly cares about everyone they lead, wants to know them personally, and is responsible for looking out for their best interest. Friendship and leadership alike are based on accountability, commitment and authenticity. Personally, I do not think the two can be separated. 

Which would you prefer? A team of followers engaged from the neck up or employees engaged from the shoulders down?
