Sharing a great article by Joel Peterson

Are You a Leader During Times of Duress? by Joel Peterson

  • Leaders confront reality head-on. (“Thinking will not overcome fear—but action will.” –W. Clement Stone)
  • Leaders don’t need to be asked. (The motto of the U.S. Army Rangers is Sua Sponte—“of their own accord”—meaning they chose their duty.)
  • Leaders do themselves what they ask of others. (“You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.” –Oliver Goldsmith)
  • Leaders are prepared. (Navy SEALs “earn their Trident every day,” according to their code.)
  • Leaders are all about the mission. (“Never mind your happiness; do your duty.” – Peter Drucker)

 

Being a leader and what it means – Inspiration and leadership style

The UK’s most powerful women share their experiences, advice and philosophy for a successful working life.

To a very large degree, several of their statements resonated with me for, I believe in those as well and strive to apply those exact strategies in my life and work(they aren’t really two different entities for me) to a great extent.
Listing below some of my observations(literal quotes most) on what they stated, which I loved and will repetitively read and continue to practice!

  • Through passion, perseverance and determination you can achieve anything.

  • Its really important that when you leave a room, people say good things about you and the choices you made for them and they appreciate your integrity. You loose your integrity, you loose everything.

  • Moments when you realize what you are not good at, than what you are. You may not be a great writer,artist,developer “but your best skill on job is in actually supporting the people. Those are the moments that are more seminal and leads you onto a track which allows you to be good at what you do

  • Take a leap (of faith) in the dark and do what you think you can’t do

  • Leave a situation always better than the way you found it

  • I am anyone’s equal and no one’s superior” be braver, confident and repetitive but not chippy!  I live by this as well

  • Obstacles are but feedback & opportunities

  • Building something that is bigger and more important than you

  • “Have a standard that you don’t go beneath”

  • Repeated discussions with team on how to approach a situation and make it better
