Technology, people, mindset - everything has undergone changes. Even the way people develop their skills has been adjusted according to the current trend. Talking about skills, have you observed any changes in today’s leadership skills? Well, the answer would be a resounding Yes! Leaders have already learned to adjust their sails according to the flow. But has the journey been easy? We have some of the top authors writing about various aspects of today’s leadership skills in this issue of Leadership Excellence Essentials. We often expect others to be as engaged as we are, to get it as much as we do, but they don’t; and then we become disappointed at the outcome. We complain about their motivation, work ethic, inattention to the right things, attitudes, etc. The problem, as we see it, is clearly them. But what if, to a large extent, the problem may in fact be you? Two critical questions that leaders constantly need to be asking is: “Why SHOULD they care, be motivated, and push through? And, what have I DONE (and NOT done) to facilitate their engagement? And this issue is not just one for poorly performing individuals and teams. Even if your team is doing well – could they be doing better? To know more, read our cover article Why Should People Show Up And Be Dedicated To Something You’re Leading? By Dr. Nathan J. Hiller.
