The company management lecture provided a perspective that is practical the main topics leadership.
More specifically, the lecturer explained what leadership really means. More specifically, a leader is someone “who serves people in such an inspirational, trusting, respectful, caring way that people desire to follow you”. Furthermore, he emphasized that true leadership is dependent on self-leadership which means that serving oneself “in such an inspirational, trusting, respectful, caring way that you would like to check out yourself”. In my opinion, being a good leader closely relates to business management. First of all, an individual who excels at self-leadership, will almost certainly do well at leading others. Additionally, concepts of self-leadership and organizational leadership are closely intertwined. However, self-leadership always comes first. In general, the lecture supports the basic proven fact that management is dependant on good leadership. The lecturer explains that staying at the top a business is certainly not enough to be looked at a leader. What is more, I happened to be impressed by one of several examples provided by the speaker. He told a brief story: while coaching a company CEO, the coach (lecturer) asked him if he had been a good leader. The CEO answered since he was chosen to lead the company that he obviously was. When asked to decide on a walk through the company building, it became obvious that the CEO was not doing well as a leader, since there was no communication and engagement between him as well as the company employees. This is a vivid example of the importance of good leadership in managing business as a matter of fact. (more…)
