Global Leadership Summit

I went to some of the Global Leadership Summit recently and here's some leadership thoughts for you:

* Vision leaks: Recast vision all the time.

* What is a leaders greatest fear? Fear of failure...

* "The higher you rise in an organisation the less truth you hear" - Colin Powell

* Most of the time we are 'doing good', but are we doing the 'most good'? Are we using our time and resources to the best of our ability, producing the best results?

* If you're nervous when you preach, and your palms are sweaty and your lips are dry, try licking your palms.

* In your leadership teams promote a clash of ideas. Encourage team members to participate. Leave the meeting with a united resolution for the future.

* Maintain an open door policy (expect when going to the toilet)

* Don't let your position get so close to your ego, that when your position goes, your ego goes.

* Have an optimistic attitude. Adopt the idea, that things will always look better in the morning.

* Employees that are highly motivated have a 40% higher performance in the workplace than those who are unmotivated.

* Get people around you that give you a motivational 'jolt' when they walk into the room.

* Make a point of rubbing shoulders with exceptionally inspiring people!

* Connect everyone you lead to a compelling cause
