End of the Journey of the Accidental Leader
This is the 6th and FINAL of several posts this week on my book The Journey of the Accidental Leader (HRD Press 2008).
Basic tenants of The Journey of the Accidental Leader follow:
9. Initiative: The long journey starts with the first step. Often we get stuck in the mud of indecision. It’s fine, in fact healthy, to question everything along the way. However, at some point, you have to take the first, often uncertain step and then the next. If you look to far down the path, it might be scary. Better to take the first step before worrying about all the rest.
10. People: Have a passion for people. Nothing gets the work done like having a passion for people. Ask yourself: What can I do to help these people be successful? If you keep such a question in your leadership toolbox, it won’t ever let you down. You’re programmed by the questions you ask yourself. Put your questions through the Passion for People filter.
Best of luck!
