How to live before you die. Listen to what an inspirational leader advises…

I found Steve Jobs very inspiring and also moving in his address at Stanford University. I hope you enjoy it too – Visit the linkĀ –

“Death by meeting” – by Patrick Lencioni – definitely worth a read .. here is why

A very simple fable to read it will probably take you no more than 4 hours. Key themes:

Plan and prepare before your meetings
daily five-minute huddles
weekly tacticals
monthly strategics
quarterly offsites

surface conflict and build passion and energy

Are you “Leading on Purpose?” Why should anybody follow you? Do you create meaning for the work they do?

The finest leaders have a very clear set of values and beliefs and principles by which they lived their lives and lead others. Such clarity is very attractive to follows and creates a powerful sense of personal energy, calm and wisdom.
The absence of meaning and purpose for a leader is a deadly virus which infects a team and potentially the whole organisation.

So what do your followers say about you as a leader-do they believe that you are leading on purpose?
Are you sufficiently inspiring for them to willingly give discretionary life energy to you and everything you stand for?
Good luck
warm regards
