  Defining Leadership - Trying to Understand  

The Savvy Networker

You can ask ten different people what their definition of leadership is and you will probably get ten different answers.

 Leadership doesnít have a specific definition. By giving it a definition, you are putting restrictions and limitations on the word and the true value of leadership.

Leadership is something that is complicated to explain and understand. It is formless; it doesnít take on a particular shape or form, nor does it go in one particular direction.

A great leader can adjust to any situation at any given time, under any circumstance, and still come out successful.

Lofty executives, potential clients, and future employers are within easy reach to anyone with a browser and an email account. But it won't do to rush off and start blasting off email messages to strangers -- that's a recipe for being ignored or added to an email blacklist.

Eight Steps to Better Online Meetings When collaborating about work to be done, how would you rate online meetings in your company? ®
  • Less than face-to-face.
  • About the same as face-to-face.
  • Better than face-to-face.

No online meeting will be as warm and comfortable as meeting face to face, such as to go out to lunch together or meet after work. But when people collaborate about the work, if your virtual meetings aren't at least as collaborative as face to face, or even better, then you could be missing a 36 percent increase in performance of people that do. (Meetings Around the World, 2006)
