Tanveer Naseer

Of the many issues leaders have to address, failure has to be one of the most challenging. No doubt this is why we love sharing motivational quotes about failure, like this one from Thomas Edison: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

Intergenerational Leadership Begins with Us: We Have More in Common Than We Thought

Great Leadership By Dan

Guest post by Mark H. Fowler & Noal McDonald: Leadership is a complex idea: one that is not consistently easy to wrap our minds around. We know good leadership when we see it. Most of us have experienced great leaders somewhere in our lives. It could have been at work, in school, on the athletic field or with a group of friends. If we think of what these experiences have in common, we might think of this quote by Harold Koontz and Cyril O’Donnell: “Leadership molds individuals into a team.”

How do you lift people up?


Even the best leaders can be overly critical, finding fault in their employees and allowing their own negativity to mask their best selves. Certainly, there is a place for criticism, but not without enough positive reinforcement to counter-balance it. I would call that “being realistic”. Why is this balance important to you as a leader? Because you set the tone. Your employees are watching for cues on how they should behave, and if that tone is overly negative, it catches on like a virus.

5 Common Objections to Change – And 5 Ways to Lead Through Them

It seemed so simple, yet I was pulled aside and told several times it would be the last change I made in the church.

And they were apparently extremely serious about it – at least some of them.

Distinguishing a Boss From a Leader

Ron Edmondson

Are you a boss or a leader? I hate the term boss. Whenever someone refers to me as their boss I almost feel like I’m doing something wrong as a leader. I want to ask forgiveness for making me think I’m the boss. There are so many differences in a boss and a leader. A boss seems to have all the answers, even if they really don’t. A leader solicits input, leads a collaborative effort, to arrive at the right answer. A boss tells people what to do.
