Editor’s Note Vol.33 No. 01 And finally its year 2016! New hopes, expectations, aspirations, goals…we have a whole year to plan our journey ahead. But, can we do something to bring about a change? How can we be the change? Sounds exciting? We offer you the perfect opportunity. We all understand and admire a few truly inspired companies or individuals who have big dreams and do great things. But what can we do as individuals to inspire our-selves and the people around us? Welcome to LEAD2016. An event by HR.com that will bring leaders from across business, in-dustry and education together to exchange with one another and witness life-changing inspirational speakers. On February 3rd, 2016, 13 speakers will be broadcast live from this event via high definition web stream technology. If you want to be part of this exciting and inspirational leadership event, visit LEAD2016. We did promise to bring you the latest de-velopments and discussions in the field of lead-ership this year. To start with, this month we have Marlene Chism, International Speaker and Author of Stop Workplace Drama and No-Drama Leadership on the cover. Her article, Elevate Your Leadership In 2016 offers sixteen ways to elevate your leadership, with the emphasis on who you need to “BE” in order to achieve the simple but often neglected “to-dos.” A perfect article to start your New Year! Kristen Koh Goldstein’s article Fostering Team Collaboration is yet another interesting read we have for you. Fostering collaboration through tools enables efficiency and reduces the risk of human error. Equipping team members for robust participation is a great starting point in revamping any company culture to focus on col-laboration. Kristen offers 5 five tips to foster team collaboration in your organization. Go for it! As teams and organisations plan 2016, take a moment to be still. In the space created by leaders to be still, insights are generated, says Renée Gendron in her article Release The Possible. According to her, to be productive doesn’t always mean running at full speed and to be effective doesn’t always mean being overworked. Resources aren’t always used optimally and there is always room for being innovative. Create the space for these conversations by hitting the pause button. To a fearful manager, work may seem to grind to a halt. To a fearless leader such times of stillness unleash the potential of the possible. An offbeat article, again worth a read! Denise McClure’s article Why Entrepreneurs Fail is yet another interesting article that discusses about why businesses flop. It is almost too simple a concept to mention, but it is surprising the number of businesses fail because they simply don’t understand their customers. More often than not, the entrepreneur is so focused on the product or service they want to sell that they neglect to consider what it is their potential customers are looking for. She offers 3 tips to help future entrepreneurs. Don’t miss it. Apart from these articles, we also have a good number of other leadership and related topics in this edition of Leadership Excellence Essentials. We hope you enjoy reading all articles and do send your feedback! Next month, we will bring you the list of the proud winners of Leadership Excellence Awards 2016. Stay tuned! Have a say ?
