Last week, we launched our Business Leadership Academy. It was gratifying to finally raise the curtain on this academy after working for months on this project. You may already know that the business leadership academy is a premier program that helps ambitious business professionals become successful business leaders.
We help you become successful in your career by building seven key skills. Each week, we add new powerful premium resources for your development.
This week, we shared four new lessons for you:
This article helps you understand the power of a single idea that acts as an epiphany. It shares examples of times when an individual idea transformed lives of people. You will also go through this experience in life. And when that happens, you will move to a different place in your career. It shows you how you can prepare to experience such an epiphany.
We introduce ourselves almost every day. It is something that we communicate with others and therefore it is a critical way by which we manage our image. How you conduct this communication can change the way others view you. Thus, it is an essential skill for managing others.
This tip-sheet is a tool for you to carry with you. It not only reminds you what makes an excellent introduction but also gives you prompts to answer. In case you need to come up with a new introduction while on the go, you can use it to create an excellent introduction for a novel situation.
The discipline area of managing others already has a lesson on how to introduce yourself. It explains the difference between bad, good and great introductions. I suggest you give it a quick read today.
One of the hallmarks of great business leaders is their ability to leverage their organizations. This not only means building synergies across people but also leveraging others in decision making.
This video lesson shows you how you can leverage others in making better decisions. The same method helps you build morale and take your team along. It also provides you a step by step method to seek feedback and use it appropriately.
In case you like to read more about the five steps in leveraging organizations, you can also read the accompanying article which is in the Managing Others Discipline Area.
People are often surprised by how many different types of innovations there are. As a driver of change, you need to know the distinction between types of innovations. It will help you innovate at much higher level.
