I have been reading the book The 360 degree Leader: Developing your influence from anywhere in the organization by John C. Maxwell. I am still reading but here are a few quotes and thoughts I’d like to share with you. Hope it helps you to become a better person/leader.
Helpful thoughts and quotes from the book:
Getting the job done makes you a success. Getting the job done through others makes you a leader.
When you add value to people they want to follow you.
Provide training to your people so they’ll know how to do their job.
If you don’t like what your people are doing, first take a look at yourself.
Put your staff in the right positions…where their strength lies.
Your followers become like you, so lead well
My thoughts and lessons on my readings of the book, The 360 degree Leadership:
When your followers believe in you
When they can trust you
They will follow you.
Don’t be the kind of leader that says one thing and does another thing. Take time to know your staff individually; connect with them somehow by knowing a little about their lives. It can be just knowing about their hobby.
Develop your staff patiently and help them acquire skills and qualities that will benefit other areas of their lives.
