Dear All,

While leadership is easy to explain, leadership is not so easy to practise.

Leadership is about behaviour first, skills second. Good leaders are followed chiefly because people trust and respect them, rather than the skills they possess.

Leadership is different to management. Management relies more on planning, organisational and communications skills. Leadership relies on management skills too, but more so on qualities such as integrity, honesty, humility, courage, commitment, sincerity, passion, confidence, positivity, wisdom, determination, compassion and sensitivity. Some people are born more naturally to leadership than others. Most people don't seek to be a leader. Those who want to be a leader can develop leadership ability.

Leadership can be performed with different styles. Some leaders have one style, which is right for certain situations and wrong for others. Some leaders can adapt and use different leadership styles for given situations.

Today ethical leadership is more important than ever. The world is more transparent and connected than it has ever been. The actions and philosophies of organisations are scrutinised by the media and the general public as never before. This coincides with massively increased awareness and interest among people everywhere in corporate responsibility and the many related concepts, such as Fair Trade, sustainability, social and community responsibility .

Leadership tTips -
[list]There is only one way - the straight way. It sets the tone of the organisation.

Be open to the best of what everyone, everywhere, has to offer; transfer learning across your organisation.

Get the right people in the right jobs - it is more important than developing a strategy.

An informal atmosphere is a competitive advantage.

Make sure everybody counts and everybody knows they count.

Legitimate self-confidence is a winner - the true test of self-confidence is the courage to be open.

Business has to be fun - celebrations energise and organisation.

Never underestimate the other guy.

Understand where real value is added and put your best people there.

Know when to meddle and when to let go - this is pure instinct.

As a leader, your main priority is to get the job done, whatever the job is

Leaders make things happen by:

knowing your objectives and having a plan how to achieve them

building a team committed to achieving the objectives

helping each team member to give their best efforts

As a leader you must know yourself. Know your own strengths and weaknesses, so that you can build the best team around

Hope you all will be leaders in your fields.

Best Regards

Hello Dr. Al Husseini:
Excellent post on leadership.
Leadership is a life style that few of us choose to live.
If leaders could be made, MBAs would be leaders but few MBAs are leaders.
Employers should identify their future leaders and then get them educated and trained while giving them the experience they need to be successful leaders in the future.

>Hope you all will be leaders in your fields. <
Can't someone be a recognized leader in their field of study without being leader?
