I love James Bond movies.

Attitude Reflects Leadership

While this sounds simple enough at face value, I have consistently found that one of the most often overlooked leadership attributes is that of a positive attitude.

Many leaders I’ve spoken with about servant leadership struggle with the word “servant” because of its link to Jesus’ words “I came not to be served but to serve” and to the subservient nature of a slave. My friend Frances Hesselbein, chairman of the Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute, once told me “to serve is to live” (now it’s her Twitter handle).

If employees feel that they are being micro-managed, the engagement will be sucked out like a rapidly deflating balloon. Mike met with his manager and asked if there is any way he could stay at his current location. He meets with his manager again. Systems-Drive-Behavior.

When Charismatic Leadership Goes Too Far

Harvard Business

Leadership is changing — fast. But true charismatic leadership is more than just a set of techniques to excite followers. First, charismatic leadership is as seductive for the leader as for followers, and the better one is at it, the easier it is to be blind to signs of trouble.
