Be humble, not charismatic

Charisma is useful for engaging and inspiring others.
However, unchecked charisma can lead to a reputation of self-absorption and self-promotion

The team may become concerned that you are more focused on your own concerns and ideas than on what's best for the group or organization.

As a leader, being reliable and responsible is important for your team. You stand a good chance in gaining the trust of your team if you show that you exercise caution, take calculated risks, and will hold to the organizational principles.

Modesty is the best policy

There is a degree of responsibility (and professionalism) that is expected from those in charge.
Trying to be the fun boss will harm your reputation eventually. It is good to keep some space between you and your team.

Balance analysis with action

Too much focus on data and analyses can detract from the broader context or the impact of your decisions. Relying only on data may indicate the best course of action for the bottom line, but it may not be the best decision for the team or relevant stakeholders.

Be vigilant

Adjusting to a new leadership role can take some time. After a while, we will become more comfortable, and we may stop paying attention to our reputations.

Keep up your guard, stay vigilant and seek regular feedback.

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

Jamyson Haug

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