Welcome back to my blog, sorry to have been away so long since my last post. I’ve been quite busy in the Social Media arena and Google+ Communities, discussing and learning about Leadership. There is a common topic that is recurrent, namely, the traits / characteristics / hallmarks of a great leader. Thousands of words have been spent on describing what makes a leader special. I have no intention of reinventing the wheel but I would like to simply share with you the image that came to mind when I approached the subject.
Congratulations! You have graduated from your managerial training course. You are now a Manager, at least on paper. You are at the beginning of your executive career and you hope to change the world. Unfortunately, at this point you are between a rock and a hard place. On one side there is your ever demanding boss Rock and on the other side there is the general workforce Hard Place.
