Friday Unwind – Don’t be a Bad Bo$$

28 Aug

Good morning everyone.

While we have spent the last couple of weeks sharing information about how the responsibility of the leader is developing and inspiring their team, we know there are still plenty of bad bosses out there.

Sadly, if this video is accurate, it takes 22 months to recover from the stress of having to work for a bad boss. But imagine, if we commit to serving our teams and helping them to grow, thus making a difference in their careers and lives, that positive influence would last many years.

Good food for thought…being a leader the makes a positive difference is a choice….have a great weekend.

all the best, kevin

Friday Unwind – Level 4 leaders develop their people

21 Aug

Good morning everyone.

First an apology on not getting the Friday Unwind newsletter out at its normal time. I was flying back from a business trip and got home much later than expected. Thank you for your patience.

This week’s Friday Unwind is from John Maxwell. One of his more recent books is “The Five Levels of Leadership”. In this specific talk, he walks through these levels, which I believe a crucial for leaders at any level to understand and to constantly be developing.

Specifically around the 17 minute mark, we dives into level 4 leadership, which is all about people development. And I love his quote, which ties in with this week’s material which is:

“Successful people position themselves well. Successful leaders position others well”.

Friday Unwind – Leaders choose to sacrifice and make their team feel safe!

14 Aug

Good morning everyone.

This week’s Friday Unwind is from my favorite leadership speaker about why we need to view our people as heartcounts, not headcounts. Care for your team and make a difference in their lives.

“They have chosen to look after the people the left of them and they chosen to look after the people to the right of them. This is what a leader is.” -Simon Sinek

Have a great weekend.

all the best, kevin

“The life I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place my touch will be felt.”  ~ Frederick Buechner

Leaders, we have a choice to make a POSITIVE difference in the lives of those we serve. And that influence carries well beyond the person we care for.

Have a great week.

all the best, kevin
