Great leaders feel most energized when they can add massive value to the community they are working with or the world at large.

The P Word: Politics and Leadership

bigstock-Dictionary-Series-Politics-2485906-200x300

The higher up you coach in an organization, the more politics is a true issue. It’s a base to cover with leaders that turns out to be somewhat of a taboo for some. I have even had people tell me “there are no politics” in their organization. Well, that’s just not so. And “politics” is » Read More

Lonely at the Top? Not Necessarily.

bigstock_On_Top_Of_The_World_948942

I still hear that a lot. How lonely it is at the top. How difficult it is to remain a character-based leader. How it’s a tough job but somebody has to do it. Right? Well, as I said, not necessarily. Last night I was watching The Scent of a Woman for the umpteenth time. I » Read More

If you aspire to be a leader, what would that look like for you? Do you imagine it? Do you strive for it every day? Of course, you might be attracted to the LeadChange group because you already have a leadership responsibility or because the very thought of leadership is enticing to you. To me, » Read More

Leadership is a Practice

I love the way we talk leadership here. It always inspires me to read what others are saying, to hear the radio shows, to be in the presence of the Lead Change community. So here’s what I have been pondering lately. I hope we can continue to explore it together. Consider this: True leadership is » Read More
