Inspiring Absolutes 16. April 2012
Von Jim Estill - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Burnison is an impressive guy. CEO of Korn Ferry. It seems logical he would know a thing or two about leadership not just because he runs his own company but as a recruiter, he would have seen hundreds of leaders. And he already a published best seller ("No Fear of Failure")

I liked the simple one word chapter titles. 12 Absolutes - 12 chapters one for each.

The 12 absolutes are:

1 - Lead - This seemed like too simple of a place to start but the chapter is quite good. I got hooked by the subhead "Anchor yourself in Humility". I see a lack of humility in leadership and I think this does not serve us. Leader need to move above the me to the we.

2 - Purpose - This is the true enabler of any company.

3 - Strategy - In the end, it is all about execution.

4 - People - Clearly key to everything. I always had the theory that a leaders' job was to hire average people and help them grow to be above average (by empowering, training, coaching, mentoring and giving them the tools to do the job well)

5 - Measure - I find this easy on the "hard stuff" like sales, profits, delivery standards etc but always struggle trying to measure the "soft" like culture. I also find too often, measures are short term where the organization really needs long term.

6 - Empower - I am a big believer in this. No business can scale without empowering people - not just delegating but trusting them to make the right choices to help a company thrive.

7 - Reward - obvious. If the company does well, the people should do well.

8 - Anticipate - "It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan" Elanor Roosevelt.

9 - Navigate - the unexpected will happen.

10 - Communicate - key to all leadership.

11 - Listen - I would have put this before communicate.

12 - Learn - I love learning and always wanted any company I am involved in to be a constant learning company.

Some quotes:

"Leaders are mirrors of the organization"

"Leadership is Grace, Dignity and Restraint."

"Shared Purpose Creates Shared Urgency"

Another text for a graduate leadership class….
The book is simply written, with lots of quotes and real life examples.
It gives solid, understandable advise, and was more enjoyable to read than others I have had to study from.
If you have already led a team, you know all of this info, but it can't hurt to reinforce it!

Be Prepared to be Challenged! 23. Mai 2012
Von Book Hawk - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Gary Burnison, CEO of Korn/Ferry International (a worldwide leader in executive recruitment and provider of talent management solutions) comes out with his second book, "The Twelve Absolutes of Leadership." Be aware...this book will challenge you with every chapter. With most leadership books, I have a personal goal of obtaining one nugget of information that will be useful in my role as a leader. With Gary Burnison's book, you will have a wagon full of leadership nuggets that will develop, motivate, and challenge you as a leader

This book is divided up into twelve chapters: 1) Lead, 2) Purpose, 3) Strategy, 4) People, 5) Measure, 6) Empower, 7) Reward, 8) Anticipate, 9) Navigate, 10) Communicate, 11) Listen, and 12) Learn.

As you can tell from the chapter headings, Gary touches on all the vital aspects that can define great leadership. If you take stock of these twelve absolutes, your leadership will leave a lasting and positive legacy. Throughout the book, you will be challenged. Consider this quote from page 14 of the book:

"The accountability you want to see at every level must start with you. Your attitude and actions will cascade throughout the organization, creating followship. People will side with you because of what you stand for, even if some of the decisions you make turn out to be less than optimal."

If that quote wasn't enough to challenge you, consider this quote from page 15:

"Leadership is rising above `Me' to embrace `we'.

Enjoy this book. Savor each page. Learn. Grow. Prosper.
