Leadership event

I attended a great leadership event over the last 2 days.

As I use my blog to not only lead others but also to develop myself I thought it apt (for myself; not you the reader) to highlight key learning’s…..

I’ve always loved the Forming, Norming, Storming and Performing model by Bruce Tuckleman and it was reinforced as being useful

Mission Command = What is my higher commanders intent?

What went well?
What didn’t go well?
What can we do better next time?
i.e. Debriefing is key.

‘Aggregation of Marginal Gains’ can make all the difference.
David Brailsford

‘Leadership is just plain you’.
Field Marshall Viscount Slim (above)

Feedback. Give it. And receive it.

Martin Luther King. I have a Dream = amazing off the cuff visionary speech.

Pacesetting, Commanding, Visionary, Affiliative, Democratic, Coaching

GE under Jack Welch and the 4 E’s = cool.

‘They copied all they could follow, but they couldn’t copy my mind,
And I left ’em sweating and stealing a year and a half behind.’
Rudyard Kipling
