Three Advanced Leadership Skills

Three Advanced Leadership Skills

Three Advanced Leadership Skills

If you want to advance your leadership skills to the highest level, then master the skills of:

  • Utilisation: making use of whatever happens.
  • Adaptability: changing yourself to benefit from a change in circumstances.
  • Creativity: inventing new ways.

1. Utilisation: Making use of whatever happens.

Your plans are often thrown off-track by circumstances beyond your control.

When that happens, many people will rant about their rotten luck.

Leaders, however, strive to profit from whatever happens.

If it snows on Sunday, some people complain. Other people build a snowman.

If a heckler torments a public speaker, some speakers are rattled. Better speakers use the heckler as a foil with which to prove their point.

Whatever happens, ask yourself: how can we USE this to our advantage?

2. Adaptability: Changing yourself to survive a change in circumstances.

If you cannot bend the circumstances to fit you, then you may have to bend yourself to fit the circumstances.

Adapt and evolve.

Evolution is progress by adapting the existing model to fit the changing circumstances.

It is sometimes called "the survival of the fittest".

Those who adapt to the changing circumstances, live long and prosper. Those who don't, won't.

It pays to be adaptable.

3. Creativity: Inventing new ways to achieve your goals.

In the biological world, evolutionary adaptation takes millions of years.

In the economic world, you don't have that much time. You must adapt faster.

And that means you must be creative.

Harness the power of your creative brain to invent new ideas, new methods, new ways of doing business.

We know that change is the only constant, and so you must always be ready to abandon what you have done before and create new and better ways, to achieve the result you want.

Create your way out of trouble.

Hannibal said: We will either find a way; or create one!

The world belongs to creative minds.
