I’m really interested in stuff about leadership and management and found this from Focus.com via Fresh Inc very useful. Incidentally did you see Fresh Inc’s fabulous ideas for Father’s Day gifts? With 5+2 ‘children’ do you think I might get lucky one of these years? Highly doubtful but there’s nothing like dropping big hints. (Today’s Father’s Day actually). Anyway, here’s about leadership:
“Becoming a great leader in 101 easy steps. Vincent Van Gogh once said, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” Along those lines, Digg links to the business site, Focus.com, which has compiled a list of 101 Common Sense Rules for Leaders. The list covers all aspects of a good manager’s toolbox, including tips for getting along with employees, boosting productivity, and managing finances and resources. Also included are pointers on maintaining body language that’s appropriate for a leader: sit up straight, face the person you’re talking to, and take your hands out of your pockets. To be fair, those last few tips have been in use for decades by mothers of pesky third-graders everywhere.”
There you are then, get reading and leading!
