Whatever your thoughts, feelings or opinions are about money, there’s one thing you must acknowledge. It’s the system human beings have all agreed to use to determine value and do business with one another. It’s the basis of business.

Imagine leadership as the internal fuel that powers your management of yourself and others. Imagine leadership as the catalyst that gets you out of bed every morning, commuting into work and fulfilling on the goals, objectives, strategy and tactics all designed to produce the results you desire.
I see too much making wrong of the “other” for their beliefs and customs and not enough turning the finger back the other way to take responsibility for one’s own hypocrisy.

I think the world could do with a little cheering up, don’t you? Perhaps the people who work for or with you could use the same. Perhaps YOU could do with a spiritual uplift.
I hear a lot of arguments against exams, like they place too much pressure on young people and they’re not an accurate measure of intelligence. These are all true enough. However, there are benefits to taking exams, too, and it occurred to me over revision week that the exam culture creates opportunities for leadership development in children.
What is it about curiosity that drives success, especially in terms of leadership? I’m sure you know what curiosity means to you, but how is it defined, and what are the origins of the word? This will shine light on why curiosity is a leadership quality you will want to cultivate in yourself.
She is a talented interviewer, she’s funny, she’s clever, but there’s something else. She stands for something much bigger than herself. She stands for equality, kindness and accepting difference. Her values are very clear for everyone to see. That’s what distinguishes her as a leader.
