Will You Have The MORAL Imperative For Leading?

One of the principal challenges, to effectively, consistently, and relevantly leading, is, possessing, and maintaining, the MORAL imperative, and the right reasons, for wanting to be a leader! In my, over 4 decades, of identifying, qualifying, training, developing, and consulting to thousands of actual, and/ or potential leaders, I have come to learn, and realize, how challenging it is, to recognize this personal characteristic, trait, and degree of personal integrity, in order to wisely select, the right people, to train, and elect to positions of leadership! With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly consider, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this entails, and why it’s such an important consideration.

1. Motives; motivating; mention; make mark; mean it: The challenge begins, because so few people, are willing, to objectively consider, their true motives, and reasons, for wanting to be a leader. Unless/ until, these people are motivated by quality service, and representing the best interests of the organization, and stakeholders, they probably shouldn’t be leading! The right individual, is consistently, focused on motivating others, to become more committed, and involved, on a regular, consistent basis! This includes, possessing a willingness to mention the contribution, stakeholders contribute, and thank them! How might someone make their personal mark, for the better? Possessing the moral imperative, must include meaning, what one says, rather than merely using empty rhetoric, and making promises!

2. Options; opportunities; opinion: One must consider, with an open – mind, many alternatives, and options, and position himself, to recognize the best opportunities, or create his own opportunity! A true leader articulates his positions and ideas, as well as personal opinions, in a manner, which motivates and inspires, those he serves, and represents!

3. Relevant; rationale; reasoning; realistic: No idea, no matter how, well – intentioned, does what’s needed, and necessary, until/ unless, it is truly relevant, to making the organization, the best, it might possibly be! A true leader clearly articulates his rationale, and reasoning, while maintaining a realistic attitude, and a well – considered, action and strategic plan!

4. Attention; attitude; aptitude; articulate: When one pays attention, to relevant details, and consistently proceeds with, and maintains, a positive, can – do, attitude, while developing the aptitude and skill – set, to make a relevant, sustainable difference, for the better, he is on the path, to greater leadership! Combining this with the ability and willingness to articulate a positive, motivating, inspiring message, he takes charge, and proceeds, with the moral imperative, needed to become a true leader!

5. Listen; learn; leadership; liaison: Great leaders listen, far more often, than they speak, and learn, from every conversation and experience, in a relevant, sustainable manner! Relevant, sustainable, quality, effective leadership, requires a willingness, and ability, to become the liaison, between the various components, of the organization!

Will you possess, and maintain, the MORAL imperative, to be, a true leader? Will you maintain the degree of commitment, and focus, which makes a difference, for the better?

A Leader Must FIGHT For His Principles

Although many individuals are either selected, elected, and/ or ascend, to positions of leaders, the reality is, very few of them, actually become quality, meaningful, effective, principled leaders! When any group is fortunate, enough, to identify, and choose, a leader, who possesses, and maintains, the highest degree of personal ethics, absolute integrity, and quality, relevant principles, it is important to observe, whether, that individual, proceeds, forward, despite obstacles, and maintains these assets. A true leader is an individual, who is ready, willing, able and principled – enough, to FIGHT, the good – fight, in order to maintain these, despite the temptation, of taking an easier course, or path, of least resistance! With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly, consider, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this encompasses, and why it’s such an important characteristic, needed to be, an effective leader.

1. Face facts; future; flourish, fruition: One must be willing to objectively, face the facts, rather than proceeding, in some sort of denial! Maintaining a keen – eye, on the best way, to proceed, into the future, rather than merely being popular, is the best way, to ensure the organization, will flourish, and bring his most sustainable ideas, and plans, to fruition!

2. Ideology; integrity; imagination; ideas: Unless/ until. someone aligns his personal ideology, with that, of his organizations and stakeholders, he will be unable to proceed, with absolute integrity, combined with the ability to maintain and utilize a quality imagination, which will drive, positive, meaningful ideas, forward, in a relevant, sustainable manner!

3. Generate goodwill; growth: In order to implement sustainable ideas, a leader must address perceptions, and focus on the best way, to generate goodwill, not based, solely on popularity, promises, and rhetoric, but, rather, a willingness to fight for one’s ideals and plans, in order to permit the group, to consistently undergo, the necessary degree of growth!

4. Healing; head/ heart: True leaders fight, the good – fight, every day, to bring about the common good, and a healing mentality! When one realizes, he must use, both, his emotional and logical components, effectively, and consistently, he becomes better able, to proceed, with the needed, head/ heart, balance!

5. Timely: If a leader wishes to make a difference, for the better, he must expand his personal, comfort zone, and avoid, the often – disastrous, path, of least resistance, and procrastinate! Until/ unless, someone proceeds, in a well – considered, timely manner, he will be challenged, to effectively implement, true leadership, because he won’t be fighting, to get things, that are needed, done!

True leaders FIGHT for their principles, ideas, and ideology! Will you be able to become, one of these few individuals?

What Leaders STRIVE To Achieve

If you decide, you want to be, and are the appropriate person, to serve and represent a particular group, and set of constituents, as their leader, you should, seriously consider, analyze, and determine, what you hope to achieve, your personal reasons, actual motives, and, particularly, what you STRIVE to achieve! Quite often, the main difference between meaningful leaders, and the rest – of – the – pack, can be measured by the quality, relevance, and sustainability of these motives, and intentions. With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly consider, analyze, review and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, some of the essential considerations, and differences.

1. Strengthen; system; solutions; sustainable: Perhaps, the single – biggest, necessity, to be a quality leader, is the focus on, and determination to, strengthen the group, and leave it stronger, after one’s tenure, then when assuming any position! One must develop an easy – to – replicate/ duplicate, relevant system, which focuses on seeking viable solutions, rather than merely blaming others, and/ or complaining! These ideas must be, both, truly relevant, and sustainable, focused on bringing the group, represented, into the future, in a meaningful, effective way!

2. Timely: Never procrastinate, or put things off, merely because of concern, for personal comfort, and/ or convenience, or to avoid being blamed! Quality leaders must proceed, consistently, in a well – considered, timely manner!

3. Relevant; responsive; responsible; realistic: True leaders weigh the risk, versus the rewards, in a responsible, realistic manner, and focus on the best way to proceed, rather than the path of least resistance! Only when one commits, to providing relevant, responsive leadership, will he make a significant difference, for the better.

4. Ideas; imagination; ideology: Consider whether your core ideology, is, in sync with, that of your organization, and stakeholders! Proceed, with the well – developed, imagination, to provide relevant ideas, by considering, outside – the – box, options and alternatives!

5. Views; vision; value; values: A leader must possess insights and views, which align with the vital, vibrant vision of the specific organization, and the values, it represents! Leaders only attract followers, when they address, both, the actual and perceptual concepts, of providing meaningful, relevant value!

6. Empathy; emphasis; endurance; excellence; evolving: Times evolve, and sustainable organizations must consistently be, evolving, in a relevant, sustainable way! One must be ready, willing and able, to listen, far more than speaking, and learn from every conversation and experience, in order to proceed with genuine, essential, empathy! When one’s emphasis, is combined with the endurance to pursue, the highest degree of personal excellence, a leader is born!

Real leaders STRIVE to make a significant difference, for the better! Are you ready to lead?

Does Your Leader Know What He’s DOING?

If all, we needed, to produce quality leaders, was finding individuals, with the finest intentions, a relevant perspective, and, even, a positive, can – do, attitude, we would probably be, far less challenged, finding the right people, to serve as effective leaders, rather than discovering, the dearth of genuine leadership, so often witnessed, today! However, it also takes, someone, who knows, what he’s DOING, both, from the perspective of developing and acquiring the necessary skill – set, and aptitude, but, also, one, which is relevant, to the specific organization, and set of stakeholders. With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly identify, consider, examine, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, some of the necessary ingredients.

1. Delve deeply; determine; deliver: It generally takes, more than, mere, quality intentions, to lead, effectively and relevantly! The individual must be ready, willing, and able, to delve deeply, in order to determine, the options and alternatives, with an open – mind, and determine, the best path to follow! However, what often differentiates between true leaders, and the rest – of – the – pack, is the ability to deliver on one’s promises, and achieve, what is needed and necessary, for the specific organization, and constituents!

2. Options; opportunities: Far too often, individuals ascend to positions of leadership, who have the My way, or the highway, mindset! A true leaders considers various options, and prepares to recognize, and utilize the best opportunities, and/ or, to create his own opportunity!

3. Ideology; imagination; ideas; integrity: Effectively leading an organization, requires aligning one’s personal ideology, with the vision, and mission of the specific group! One must expand his personal comfort zone, and proceed with a relevant imagination, and the ability to introduce relevant ideas, which will make the organization, and stakeholders, stronger! Only, when one maintains absolute integrity, will others continue to remain relevant!

4. Needs: No programs, ideas, or processes, make a difference, for the better, until/ unless, they are directly based on, and focused upon, the needs, goals, priorities, etc, of the organization, and the perceptions, of actual constituents, as well as potential ones! Leadership, without being based on actual needs, is anything, but, actually leading, in any type of relevant, sustainable manner!

5. Generate goodwill; growth; greatness: A leader’s focus must be on generating goodwill, or he will fail, to attract future leaders, who will bring quality, sustainable future, within reach! Organizations, either, undergo continuous, relevant, sustainable growth, or never achieve the level of greatness, needed and necessary!

Always consider, whether your leader, actually, knows what he’s DOING! If you decide to become one, be the best, you might possibly be!

How Do True Leaders FIND Their Way?

In my, over four decades, of identifying, qualifying, training, developing, and consulting to over a thousand, actual, and/ or potential leaders, I have discovered, one of the most challenging obstacles to doing so, is, it is difficult to know, how, someone will pursue the specific position, respond, react, and proceed, when facing challenges and/ or obstacles. I have often considered this, the Lost in Space, aspect of pseudo – leadership, and strongly believe, it’s important and essential to, thoroughly consider, and review, how our best, most effective leaders, FIND their way! With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly consider, review, evaluate, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means, represents, and why it’s so very essential!

1. Future; furnish; fruition; fresh – eyes: One must expand his personal comfort zone, and go beyond, the same – old, same – old ways, by being willing, to step back, from seemingly overwhelming challenges, and taking a new look, with fresh – eyes! Leaders must always consider the future, rather than merely placing a band – aid, on a wound, and introduce relevant, and sustainable solutions, and plans! When one furnishes his group, with the understanding of how to do, rather, than, why you can’t, he exponentially enhances his ability, to bring the best approaches, to fruition.

2. Ideas; integrity; imagination; ideology: True leaders must coordinate their core ideology, with that of their organization! Possessing a relevant, sustainable imagination, focused on genuine ideas, while maintaining the utmost degree of absolute integrity, creates the finest degree of meaningful leadership!

3. Needs; nuances: Each organization has unique heritages, goals, priorities, purposes, and constituencies, and only makes a difference, for the better, when it focuses on, and addresses the real needs, of the organization, and stakeholders! Plans and processes must proceed, by addressing the nuances, of the specific group!

4. Delve deeply; determine; deliver: One must be ready, willing, and able, to go, beyond the surface, or previous perceptions, and ways, and delve deeply, into what’s the best course of action, for the specific organization, at this point, in time! A real leader determines, in a well – considered manner, how to proceed, and consistently delivers, on his promises, in a focused way!

How can anyone be a true leader, until/ unless, he understands what’s needed and necessary, and truly, FINDS his way? Are you fit to be a responsive, responsible, relevant leader?

How Do Leaders Earn TRUST?v

Until/ unless, any individual, who, either, is elected, selected, and/ or ascends. to any position of leadership, realizes, merely because of any office, held, those he serves and represents, won’t automatically, TRUST either his ideas, or motives, he will never, truly, become an effective leader! After more than four decades of involvement in nearly every aspect of leadership, from identifying, qualifying, training, developing and consulting, to more than a thousand actual, and/ or potential leaders, to personally serving, as a leader, in a variety of types and sizes of organizations, I have come to understand, this only comes, when one earns it, not merely by either good intentions, promises, and/ or rhetoric, but by his strategic and action plans, and ability to transform ideas, to fruition! With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly examine, consider, review and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, some of the essentials, in terms of earning that trust!

1. Transition; tell truth: Every individual has his own, specific approach to leading, and getting things achieved and accomplished! There is usually a transition period, from taking office, to making a significant difference, for the better, and, until/ unless, gets others, to buy – into his ideas, approaches and strategies, he will be challenged, to make a difference, for the better. One must consistently tell the truth, all the time, rather than merely when it make be easy and/ or significant!

2. Relevant; realistic; responsive: True leaders are measured by how responsive their approaches and action are, to relevant issues, as well as whether, their approach is, consistently, focused and sustainable! A leader must be positive, but, also, realistic, if he hopes to get others to believe him!

3. Useful; usable; urge; unique: Does the specific leader, possess certain unique characteristic, character, or ideas, which are, both useful, and usable? Will he have the courage of his convictions, and be willing to urge others, to care more, and become involved, to a greater degree?

4. System; sustainable solutions; service: If you hope to get others to trust, and believe in you, and your approaches, your core focus, must be service, to the organization and stakeholders, you serve, and represent! One must present a quality system, focused, not merely on popularity, but, rather, sustainable solutions!

5. Timely: Although one must make well – considered, decisions, they must also be timely, if they are to inspire, motivate, and serve the best interests of the group and constituents! There is no place, for remaining within the restraints of one’s comfort zone, and/ or procrastination!

If you hope to be an effective leader, you must demonstrate, every day, you will earn the TRUST! Will you have that degree of commitment and discipline?

Will You Be A FISCALLY Responsible Leader?

Even if someone, has the finest of intentions, great ideas and strategies, and a focus on relevance and sustainability, he will be challenged, to become, the best leader, possible, until/ unless, he pays attention to the bottom – line, and has the commitment and discipline, to be, a truly, FISCALLY responsible leader! How often have we observed, an individual, promote worthwhile ideas, only to see, them fail to go, on, to fruition, and, thus, make the necessary differences, sought and needed? Many well – intentioned individuals, seem, to seek an easier course of action, or path – of – least – resistance, and appear, to avoid paying the level of attention, they should, to creating, developing and implementing, the finest possible, relevant, meaningful, and sustainable budget, which is open – minded, and realistic! With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly consider, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, why this matters.

1. Face facts; finances; fruition: Being realistic, and facing facts, does not preclude, proceeding, in an open – minded, options and alternatives – focused manner! In order to achieve one’s objectives, and bring them to fruition, and essential component, must be, to pay keen attention to the finances, and financial realities/ necessities!

2. Ideas; imagination; integrity; ideology: When one’s budget, is used, to plan effectively, and in a relevant way, he creates a way, to transform quality ideas, and a well – developed, imagination, which align with the ideology of one’s organization, he becomes a fiscally responsible leader! However, it is essential, the individual, maintains absolute integrity, even when the truth, may be inconvenient!

3. System; sustainable solutions: When one ignore financial ramifications, and/ or reality, he will be challenged, to implement a system, which addresses needs and priorities, in a responsible way! The challenge, goal, and obligation of a true leader, must be to avoid those simplistic pitfalls, and emphasize the implementation of sustainable solutions!

4. Character; clarity; create: It takes an individual, with quality – of – character, to proceed, with the utmost focus and clarity, and consistently create, a meaningful strategy, to align fiscal realities, with relevant, sustainable solutions!

5. Aptitude; attention; attitude: In order to make this difference, one must pay keen attention, to the goals and priorities, of the organization! This requires a combination of a positive, can – do, attitude, with a relevant, well – developed skill – set, and aptitude!

6. Listen; learn: In order to develop one’s agenda, a leader must listen effectively, and learn from every conversation and experience, and plan accordingly!

7. Leadership: How can anyone demonstrate the necessary level of relevant, sustainable leadership, if he does not, consider, how the group might afford, to sustain itself?

8. You: Fiscal responsibility must focus on taking personal responsibility, rather than blaming and complaining! It’s always, up to you!

Will you commit to being a FISCALLY responsible and responsive leader? How will you balance financial/ fiscal reality, with thinking outside – the – box?

Leadership Price

Measure A Leader By His EFFECT

The measure, of a true leader, must never be based on either his promises or rhetoric, but, rather, by his EFFECT, hopefully, in a positive way, on the organization and stakeholders, he serves and represents! Although, nearly every individual, who is, either elected, selected, or ascends to any position of leadership, articulates a rhetorical message, of how we will change things, real leaders bring about quality, relevant, sustainable changes, for the better, not merely by their words, etc, but, rather, by the effectiveness of their planning, and actions, they take! With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly, examine, consider, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means, and why it is, so essential and necessary.

1. Empathy; emphasis: Far too often, we witness, well – intentioned individuals, who think, they know – it – all, and proceed, with a mindset, of, My way, or the highway. Those rare, true leaders, however, take the time, and make a concerted effort, to effectively listen, far more than they speak, and learn from every conversation, and experience, in order to be able, to proceed, with the utmost degree of genuine empathy. When this is the process, the individual places his emphasis, not only on the actual needs, and necessities, but, also, their perceptions, etc!

2. Face facts; faithful: An essential component of leading, in a meaningful way, is the willingness, attitude, and ability, to realistically, face facts, and proceed, with a balance between today’s reality, and the most desirable, relevant, sustainable future. Only when one is consistently, faithful, to the heritage, mission, and vibrant, vital vision, of the particular organization, will he be capable of producing the best effect!

3. Future; fruition: Since leaders, generally, serve in a particular, specific, limited tenure or term, one should measure a leader, by his impact, on the future, and willingness, readiness, and ability, to attract, and develop, quality, future leaders! Measure someone, not by what they promise, or how they articulate their rhetoric, but, rather, by the relevance and quality of those plans, they bring, to fruition!

4. Endurance; excellence; exceed expectations: One of the challenges, which differences the best leaders, from the rest – of – the – pack, is whether they have the high degree of persistence, and endurance, to consistently drive them, towards the utmost degree of personal excellence. Quality leaders under – promise, and exceed expectations/ over – deliver!

5. Create; clever; character; credibility: In most instances, stakeholders will only consistently, faithfully follow, a leader, who they perceive as being truly credible, and well – intentioned! One must possess the quality, of character, which focuses on clever, relevant solutions, in order to create, the finest organization!

6. Timely; tactics: It’s important to thoroughly plan, and develop, the type of tactics, which identify needs, and produce timely, well – considered, actions!

The measure of a meaningful leader, must be based on the quality and relevance, of his impact, and the sustainable EFFECT. Are you the right person, for this task, and responsibility?

Why Leaders Must Focus On SOLUTIONS

It’s nearly always easier, for someone, to simply, identify obstacles and challenges, and perceive them, as problems, rather than proceeding, the way, a true leader must, which is, to focus on, and seek viable SOLUTIONS! When one takes the blame – and – complain, simplistic approach, he is generally wasting valuable time, which would be, far better used, creating a plan, to achieve, a relevant, sustainable, course of action! After four decades of involvement, in nearly every aspect of leadership, from identifying, qualifying, training, developing, and consulting to thousands of actual and/ or potential leaders, to personally serving, as a leader, in a variety of positions and types of organizations, I have, unfortunately, far more individuals, who resort to blaming and complaining, rather than seeking quality solutions. With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly identify, consider, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means, and represents, and why it’s an essential consideration, and course of action.

1. Strengthen; service: The over – riding, goal and objective, of any true leader, must be, to strengthen, the group he serves, and stakeholders, he represents. Genuine service must focus on leaving the organization, stronger, when his term in office is over, than when he assumed his position!

2. Options; opportunities: It’s important to be ready, willing, and able, to proceed, with an open – mind, and fully consider, as many options, and alternatives, as possible! When this is the approach, and mindset, he becomes capable of recognizing opportunities, which present themselves, or create and develop, his own opportunity!

3. Listen; learn; leadership: Will you have the ability, willingness, and discipline, to effectively listen, far more than you speak, and learn, from every conversation, and experience? This enhances one’s ability to proceed, with solutions – oriented leadership!

4. Useful; usable; unique; urge: True leaders focus on being useful, and introducing usable ideas, which seek the best solutions! What unique characteristics do you possess, and why, would you be a better leader, than most others? Will you have, the courage, of your convictions, and be ready to urge others, to follow?

5. Timely: The quality of leadership, is always diminished, when one resorts to procrastination. One must be willing to proceed, in a well – considered, timely manner!

6. Integrity; ideas; ideology; imagination: Never abandon your commitment to maintaining absolute integrity, for the sake of expediency! Consider the options, and proceed, forward, to introduce ideas, without getting stuck, within the restrictions of your personal, comfort zone! Develop, and use, a quality, relevant, sustainable imagination, which is aligned with, the core ideology, of your organization!

7. Organized; optimizes: Do you have the ability, to proceed, in a well – organized way, which optimizes, the possibilities?

8. Needs: Only when your solutions, are based on relevant, sustainable needs, will you, be able to make a significant difference, for the better!

9. System; sustainable: What might you do, to create and develop, the best possible system, which focuses on relevant, sustainable solutions?

Will you be ready, willing, and able to focus on SOLUTIONS? If you are, you will become a better, more meaningful leader!
