The True Hallmarks of a Great Leader

The True Hallmarks of a Great Leader

  • Learning to focus on others.
  • Showing that the team members are valued.
  • Demonstrating genuine concern for people in the frontline.

True leaders know the importance of focusing on their team, rather than on themselves.

"A year from now, you won't judged based on whether they know your name. You'll be judged based on whether you know theirs." -Michelle Obama.

Captains are only as Good as their Teams!

Captains are only as Good as their Teams!

Every organization sees itself as a full-to-the-brim cup when a new leader arrives. Like sugar in a cup of milk, leaders must learn to mingle with the team and be willing to let go their ego, become subservient to the needs of the team. Once the sugar dissolves in the milk, you want people to exclaim how sweet the milk is. Not how good the sugar was.

The difference between good managers and truly great managers lies in their BNQ, their Bad News Quotient. Their ability to manage bad news. Both in terms of delivering it, and receiving it.

If you knew today that you had only six months to live, what would you do? Whatever it is, do it now! Today!

Often, in our quest for more, we believe we need to abandon our current position and go out looking for success. We fail to recognize the diamonds lying right under our feet.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
