20 Oct Ken Blanchard interesting words
I just came back from a conference by Ken Blanchard about “Leadership in tough economic times”. It was quite interesting. I wrote down some sentences that I want to share. Ken Blanchard is a leader in management and leadership and author fof the best seller “The one minute manager”.
So these are the sentences I wrote down:
If you want to lead in tough economical times, you have to make sure you do three things:
1) Be the bearer of HOPE
” If you change what you think, you change your behaviour”
” The key to happiness is that you perceive you are happy”
“The only reason bad newsis news is because not a lot of bad news happen”
2) Share with your people as if they were your business partners.
“You need your people”
“None of us is as smart as all of us”
“Building a community of trust stats with respect”
3) Lead with servant leadership
“Profit is the applause you get for taking care of your customers and creating a motivating environment for your people”
“Customers dont know your values, goals, strategies, mission…they only know how they are treated”
“The problem with rat races is that even if you win you are still a rat”.
