Friday, and time to tie it all to a conclusion?
A week of five day blogs in a row, and today it is time to tie it all together. I begun the week with leadership and that is the glue that combines all together. Leadership is management of energy I wrote and that is true. And if you have a good toolbox, how to handle challenging situation it will help you a lot. So build up a real god SOP for you mornings on the adventures. But you also must make good judgement, and comes out from good leadership.
How to develop the ability to good judgement; Leaders with good judgement tend to be good listeners and readers. Leadership shouldn’t be a solitary endeavor. Leaders can draw on the skills and experiences of others as well as their own when they approach a decision. Who these advisers are and how much trust the leader places in them are critical to the quality of that leader’s judgment.
Experience: Make it relevant but not narrow. Beyond the data and evidence pertinent to a decision, leaders bring their experience to bear when making judgment calls. Experience gives context and helps us identify potential solutions and anticipate challenges. If they have previously encountered something like a current challenge, leaders can scope out areas in which to focus their energy and resources.
Leaders need many qualities, but underlying them all is good judgment. Those with ambition but no judgment run out of money. Those with charisma but no judgment lead their followers in the wrong direction. Those with passion but no judgment hurl themselves down the wrong paths. Those with drive but no judgment get up very early to do the wrong things. Sheer luck and factors beyond your control may determine your eventual success, but good judgment will stack the cards in your favor.
So develop your ability to make good judgement, this is directly decisive…
See ya on Sunday…
