I had an opportunity this past week to facilitate an exploratory session for a small group of organizational leaders.
I had discussed with them what role I could play in managing the process, freeing them to work through all the relevant content information to hammer out their desired outcome.
One of the individuals said that he'd like to see my description for “Recognizing and Using ‘Content’ and ‘Process’” in writing. This article is the product I delivered to him.
You can't be 30,000 feet up in an airplane and on the ground at the same time. But you can imagine. Your daily priorities look very different from way up there.
You can't look forward in time like you can reflect back on your past. But you can imagine. Your daily work is likely to look very different five years from now.
The more responsibility you gain, the more you need vision, strategic thinking, and perspective: “Zooming in and Zooming Out--A Leader’s Perspective.”
This week's article is "Your Position of Authority May not be 'Leadership'."
The response of many of you when you read the article will be, "There's nothing new here. Doesn't everybody already know this?" Others among you may have a very different response. You might think, "How dare you challenge my competency as a leader? You don't know anything about me!" If you happen to be among the latter group, I hope you will channel whatever shock you might feel into looking at how you can become a much more effective leader. If you decide that's what you'd like to do, contact me and let's talk about how you can do this--without my help or with it. Dennis
"Procrastination" has been a topic of interest for me for fifty years. Far too many times in high school, I'd wait until about 9pm to start a homework assignment that was due the next morning. Was I afraid in some way to start the assignment? Or did I consider the task to be so easy (or of such little value) that I was apathetic toward executing it? Procrastination is rarely something a person does intentionally. So, as a leader you might ask, “How Can I Help a Procrastinator?” Dennis
