Leadership

Recalcitrant Collaborators

It is very hard to get our work done without collaboration.  Sometimes
those collaborators are on our team, sometimes in our organization,
sometimes they are elsewhere in our university, and sometimes they are
outside our university in suppliers, government agencies, etc.  When
collaboration occurs things go well.

Ten Minutes

As all of your know by now, I read a lot from a lot of sources.
Yesterday, a newsletter called Marketplace Moments written by a friend,
Randy Kilgore, reached my desk.  It carries a story which I want to
repeat:
 
"It's December 17, 1941. The citizens of the town of North Platte,
Nebraska heard a rumor that a troop train carrying their sons and
daughters to war would be stopping at the depot in their town for about
ten minutes.

Notes from Leadership Jazz

One of my favorite books on leadership is Leadership Jazz by Max DePree.
Max was chairman of the board of Herman Miller for many years.
Leadership Jazz is primarily a set of personal stories about leadership.
I first read the book about 10 years ago and have found that rereading
it as well as a set of notes that I took one time has really been
helpful.
 
For this weeks reading, I am sending you my notes the book's chapter
on delegation.

A Matter of Confidence

Good morning!  

In my reading this week, I found this short piece by John Baldoni.  In it he talks about the foundational importance of importance and suggests that you can nurture it by "inviting them to look up," by "letting them see you sweat," by "learning from your mistakes," and by "radiating hope."

Enjoy..............jim
