Leadership – Be Smart and Speak Up

May 30, 2011 0 Comments

Think of those people who naturally lead. Think of the last time that you were in a group… even just a group of people at a convention around a table who were given a task. You can picture the 5 or 6 people around the table starting to discuss the problem they’ve been given. Inevitably, […]

I’ve recently been going through a lot of books that I’ve had on my reading shelves (read the plural).  And, I’m making great headway.  One interesting thing that I noticed the other evening was how many authors (and colleagues), promoted the fact that people listen to much to their head.  That we should be more […]
