MSEL event – 04/2011

Listen 100 times. Ponder 1000 times. Speak once.

Great leaders lead with heart and soul.

Gandhi’s Seven Sins (google). Great list:

Wealth without Work
Pleasure without Conscience
Science without Humanity
Knowledge without Character
Politics without Principle
Commerce without Morality
Worship without Sacrifice

Managers do things right. Leaders do the right things.

Managers are for today. Leaders are for tomorrow.

Great leaders:

– sense of purpose
– listen
– have heart & soul
– passion for people. Compassion for others.
– posses sense of humor
– have humility
– have reverence for others (think of holding an infant)
– Integrity
– pack other people’s parachutes. Help others.
– dream big

No man steps into the same river twice. It is not the same river. It is not the same man.

Closing questions/thoughts:

Greatest challenge of leaders:

To remain grounded on values and stay true to calling.

Keep friends close to keep us honest and see our blind spots.

It’s a journey not a destination

Make yourself progressively worthless. Raise others.
