What is that 1 Quality Differentiating Star Leaders?

Conflict: A difference that prevents agreement : disagreement between ideas, feelings, etc.---Merriam-Webster Dictionary After watching business leaders at close quarters for many years, I have found that star leaders have one quality in common.

They push back and confront people if required. Strong leaders are assertive and are not afraid of having tough conversations. They have a point of view, e

Search and Find - 48 Mother's Murphy's Laws

Mothers only offer advice on two occasions: when you want it and when you don't.. A mother's love is a better cure than chicken soup, but chicken soup is cheaper. Your mother is the only person that knows more about you than you know about yourself. Any time you are unable to solve a problem, ask your mother. She probably won't know either, but she will fake it. Maternal instinct is stronger than any force known except an IRS collection agent. The more you try to stay on your mother's good side the harder it will be to figure out which side this is. The nicer a m

4 points on how managers control while leaders create

There is a gaping distinction between mediocre management and leadership. It wasn't until I worked for true leaders, that I realised this vast difference. 1. Managers control puppets- Leaders create more leaders When a manager is insecure about their position and capabilities, they want to ensure they are in constant control of their employees. They want to be the puppet master, controlling the strings of their employees' everyday work. They want to be kept in the loop, they send condescending emails that reiterate their power and their need for control and they ensure they exert

“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” ~Charles Swindoll I remember working at a job where I absolutely could not do anything right. This was one of those jobs where it was extremely fast paced and you received 100 tons of work that must be completed by an unrealistic deadline. And here’s the kicker: your time at work was spent in meetings, all day. I’m talking about four to seven hours of your day. You get the picture. So you may ask when I had time to do the work. Unfortunately, after work hours, in the evenings at home or on the weeke

What you want to do in your career path?
