It's All About the Money

When I am invited to speak, I give the same level of preparation and commitment regardless of the size, age and economic status of my audience. I also do this regardless if I am being paid or not. I cannot help but be disappointed with some so-called leaders especially those claiming to do it in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Big Disappointment

Last week, I bought two gadgets- a laser printer with copier and a digital camera. When I was still inquiring about the laser printer, the saleslady was very enthusiastic in answering all my questions and concern. Last night, when I went back to the shop to clarify a function, the same saleslady... Sign in to see full entry.

3 Questions to Ask Before Accepting a Big Responsibility

Before I commit to take a certain responsibility, I ask myself these questions: (1) Can I add value or improve on it? If I can't answer this positively, I feel I have no right accepting any role because I will not be contributing to it. People want a leader who can make things better for them. (2)...

When are Words Cheap?

Words are cheap when actions are expected. Yes, we appreciate people using words like "take care" or "thank you" which have become rare especially in a busy world. However, when actions are required, they become cheap. No amount of "I love you-- I really wish I was there" can replace physical... Sign in to see full entry.

Involve before Evolve

To develop new leaders, we must let them participate in a project or activity. I always put new faces or rookies in a team; aside from this person developing, he can share fresh ideas into the pool. Thus, involve people and see them evolve. However, there should always be a balance. If I put too... Sign in to see full entry.

Everybody Uses Everybody-- Would You Agree?

A fellow blogger requested an article about "users"; here it is: I would like to deliberate this based on leadership. It could be said that "everybody uses everybody" only if we take this phrase loosely. After an election, the supporters of an elected leader may feel used if the former dumped them...

Say "No" to a No Leader

A week ago, I posted about the Yes Leader. The flipside of the Yes Leader is the No Leader. He is someone who says "no" to everyone except himself. He knows it all and wants it done only his way. One time this type of leader called a meeting and he even came late. He negated every decisions the... Sign in to see full entry.

Some Nurses Drive My Wife Crazy

Driving past a hospital, my wife noticed a group of nurses walking on the street with their cap on. It made her upset because according to her nurses should wear their caps only on duty inside the hospital. Why was my wife upset while to me it was no big deal? It is because she is a registered nurse... Sign in to see full entry.

Say "NO" to a "YES" Leader

What is a Yes Leader? He is someone who always say "yes" to the requests of his members. His primary motive is to please everyone by giving in. He is everybody's dream leader at the beginning- benevolent and generous. Soon, everybody wants to push his own agenda. Conflict arises. Then we find the... Sign in to see full entry.

When is Authoritarian Leadership the Best Option?

I read a booklet that there is no place in society today for authoritarian type of leadership-- I disagree. When is strictness a must? When everyone in the organization is only looking for his self-interest and pushing for it. I once led a club to achieve great heights. After my presidency, the... Sign in to see full entry.
