Leadership is as simple as filling in the blanks

Leadership is as simple as filling in the blanks

There is enough literature that is out there that says that leadership is not tied to the position. However, there is not much written about how a person who is not in a “sort of” leadership position able to lead.

I believe that leadership is as simple as filling in the blanks. Any organization or for that matter any project has places and situations screaming for someone’s attention. These are the blanks that someone needs to fill. If we are willing to take up that initiative and fill in those blanks, we are on our way to become leaders.

A crisis or a breakdown are perfect examples of blanks waiting for someone.  Most often our approach is to blame someone when there is a crisis or breakdown. Wouldn’t it be great if we embrace those situations and use them as launch pads to demonstrate our leadership skills?

Rajesh< I am glad to come across your website by surfing for “Setty”.

Anyway, I suggest you read Jack Hawley’s Reawakening the Spirit in Work:

The Power of Dharmic Management.

You will appreciate it, if not done already. All the BEST.

Also, when you get a chance listen to Wayne Dyer on The secrets of Power of Intentions.

He came on our local PBS for Fund drive. 6-CD set is available from Hay House: The Secrets of The Power of Intention — Learning to Co-Create Your World Your Way

by Dr. Wayne W Dyer

I am happy to know about you and the legacy you are trying to leave behind.

May the Almighty bless you.
