Leadership positions can be a magnet for narcissistic personalities because of what we ask the leader to be and do for us. Here’s how, why, more importantly, what each of us can do about it. Anne Perschel presents “The Narcissistic Leader: How and Why We Choose Them” at Germane Insights.
Linda Fisher Thornton helps leaders understand the value of researching and learning across disciplines in order to adapt and lead in complex times in her post “Thinking Beyond Disciplines: Why We Need it.” posted at Leading in Context LLC.
We always have goals; some small, some very large (and usually less common.) Those larger goals warrant special recognition when completed. Read about “Goals and Thanks,” presented by Meg Bear at TalentedApps.
Sometimes, the most difficult challenge of being a successful leader is that you now know you are a successful leader. Great leaders invite others to leadership as well. Enjoy this audio conversation from Bob Burg and John David Mann: “Share the Mantle: Wrapping Up Series with John David Mann.”
