Ei millään pahalla, mutta sinä olet maailman surkein pomo

Seth Godin puhuu itsensä johtamisen iloista:

“If you had a manager that talked to you the way you talked to you, you’d quit. If you had a boss that wasted as much as your time as you do, they’d fire her. If an organization developed its employees as poorly as you are developing yourself, it would soon go under.”

Ajattomat ohjeet hänelle, joka johtajaksi halajaa

Nykymainonnan isä, Albert Lasker, antaa tyttärelleen mainioita ohjeita liittyen johtajuuteen.

“My darling Mary,

Welcome to Lord & Thomas. I hope we have a long business association together—if we do, we will both get much joy from it.

Both as father and employer I give you this advice—try to learn from everyone (high and low), try to be of service to everyone (high and low). He finally leads who first learns to serve. And remember—we spend our lives learning. Above all, be yourself—your best self. Always think of the other fellow’s viewpoint and try to get him to think of yours. Learn to walk before you run. Believe in yourself—and believing, strive to learn every day and grow creatively every minute so that you will justify your belief.

All my love,

Johtaminen on epämukavaa — ja hyvä niin

Jos johtaminen on kurjaa, teet työsi oikein, väittää Seth Godin. Oikea johtaminen tapahtuu epämukavuusalueella: riskialttiiden ideoiden ehdottamisessa, status quon haastamisessa jne.

When you identify the discomfort, you’ve found the place where a leader is needed.

If you’re not uncomfortable in your work as a leader, it’s almost certain you’re not reaching your potential as a leader.
