There are some very exciting subjects to be covered in the field of leadership and management and I love to get lost in these.
Vision, innovation, managing change, empowerment, releasing peoples’ potential, strategy, handling authority, relationship-building – all fantastic and very, very important.
My topic for today may not sound so exciting, but is equally important. Essential I would say.
Managers and Leaders must be organised!
By definition, you are managing and leading people, projects, assignments, resources and activities. You have lots going on. Things can easily get overlooked or forgotten. If there are even the tiniest cracks, important things will find a way of slipping through.
