ETHNICITY

Ethnicity is a tool for effective leadership and efficient organization of large populations over wide geographical areas in diverse environments and circumstances facing unique challenges as people with God given corporate expectations, hopes and aspirations. When taken positively it is a very creative people management and engagement tool and provides an excellent template for government. However, it does require a superior level of intelligence, sensitivity, maturity and empathetic leadership to realize its full value.

HOW DO YOU DEFINE FAILURE?

Failure is not a destination; it is a point of reflection. Neither is success an end. Rather, it is a means to an end.

THE FEAR OF SUCCESS

I find it sad and strange, but oddly true, that there are people who fear success. And will do everything possible to avoid it. They will thrash their limbs vigorously, not to get out, but to stay in the mud.

PRESENT YOURSELF WELL

Every time you step in front of a mirror, you look at your future. When you step away from the mirror, you step into your future. Present yourself well.

LEADERSHIP IS IMPORTANT, NEVER URGENT

 

All great victory is achieved step by step, blow by blow, stone by stone, day by day over a period equal to a lifetime. There are no short cuts. Leadership is important never urgent.

LEARN TO HANDLE AUTHORITY

 

Authority comes to leaders by virtue of office or character. It comes with the power to command and needs personal discipline to use positively. Too much; and destroy the leader. Too little; and nothing will move ahead.

THE STATE OF LEADERSHIP

Organizations are the ships that leaders use to navigate the universe. Without a ship, a leader can't travel far. With a ship, a leader eyes the horizon. A good ship, can handle a storm. And get passengers safely home. A poor ship, will need repair, before it leaves the shore. The state of the ship decides the goal. A leader, apart from the ship, is going nowhere. The two must come together if there is going to be any leadership at all. A good ship will go on even if the leader passes on

DAYS OF YOUR LIFE

 
The days you remember are the days you learned something. The days you forget are the days you did nothing to remember. The days you regret are the days you could have done better. The days you give are the days you trully live.

JOY IS PEOPLE

Many of us seek for joy in things, extra-ordinary or unique experiences or pursuits that engage us. But time and time again we come back to the fact that joy is seeing people do well, get well, learn something new, change for the better and appreciate each other. Singing "happy birthday to you" is not more than presents or the cake, it is letting others share your joy. Joy is people.

LEADERS ARE CREATED

LEADERS ARE CREATED.

While the world is busy debating whether leaders can be born or made by some miraculous hapstance, the search is not made easier by the fact that very few are actually found. It takes more than an election or selection exercise to create a leader. It takes one generation to develop the qualities necessary for effective leadership. Whereas an engineering project may produce a great work in a few weeks, a leader may take a lifetime to mature.   Leadership requires wisdom, understanding and character. No college course is able to supply these in instant amounts or the requisite content. The multiple competencies that need to be mastered are not available in any one or any number disciplines. The only way to come up with a leader is to create one.

Change your Team; it is responsible for your current performance.

To change a team, you must change the way they think about themselves. They must think of themselves as champions and world changers. Once they do, you will have made for the next decade.

TO CHANGE OR NOT TO CHANGE

TO CHANGE OR NOT TO CHANGE

Change is permanent. React to it and lose the benefit. Respond to it and gain the advantage.  To lead change you must prepare for it. Not to change is mortal.

The Biology Lab

 

Right and John studied biology in school. They studied the anatomy of birds in the lab. Some of the birds were big, some small, some were really of no interest at all.  After leaving school John opened a butchery, while Right went on to invent an airplane. What did you study in the biology lab?
