Reading Behind to Lead Ahead: Week of October 7, 2013

It is October! At times, it is a wonder in how quickly days pass by. It also serves as a reminder for all of us to lead well each and every day.

Here are some highlights from members of Authentic Leadership Dallas and Lead Change. Keep centered, keep making a difference!

Reflections on Impact by Mike Henry. Key quote: “So as we come into October 2013, how is your impact this year? Have you had the impact you thought you would at the beginning of 2013? Are you on fire, swinging for the bleachers? Are the days flying by?”

Four Ways to Lead from the Middle by Tal Shnall and Krista Kotrla. Key quote: “Even if you’re not in charge, you can always take responsibility for raising the energy in the group and rallying people around a shared mission. Bring your enthusiasm. Inspire the team. Lead from the middle and you will make a big difference.”

Why College Education Has to Change by Chris Westfall. Key quote: “Current technology still can’t fully replace the classroom. However, as costs increase, the power of education will shift – it has to – to methods that fit within our technological capabilities.”

Is Vision Still Valid? by Jon Mertz. Key quote: “A mix of clarity and philosophy may produce longer-term results than vision. This may be how Millennial leaders can lead in a better way, learning from the past and replacing the role vision with the right mix of clarity and philosophy.”

Lead well in the week ahead!
