About Influencing Powerful People - #1

by Rick Baker
On Jan 27, 2019

Here's a quote from Dirk Schlimm -

I learned that influencing powerful people is a better and more effective route than complaining about them.

This quote touches two important Spirited Leaders' philosophies - 

Constructive Criticism is an Oxymoron

and

Influence is the Essence of Leadership.

 

When a combination of skills, goals, & plans is not present, people give up their dreams & hope.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Skills, goals and plans will always be required. 

Without these basics, work is demoralizing and frustrating.

Without these basics, unless they have tremendous will, people give up their dreams and hope.

The more you use your talents the harder it is to wear them out.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We struggle when we don't use our Talents...many of us accept that struggling lot in life...and some of us embrace struggling as the starting process that allows learning and growth.

Yet, few of us struggle to use up our Talents.

Isn't that unfortunate!

 

Be nothing if not courageous.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It's about personal values

  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to others?
  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to ourselves?
  • If we are not courageous, how do we take chances, fail, learn and grow?

 

When we to want to win at all costs, our perspectives become quite blind to the realities of situations.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Some people cannot adjust their thinking to fit the realities of the situations at hand.

Some people cannot even begin to untie their emotions, so they can use logic to think about the real facts they face in situations.

Perhaps, the problem is, their Ego must cry out for help regardless of the situation they face?  

 

 

Hope is not a strategy but it is an essential ingredient of leadership.

'Hope is not a Strategy', an interesting business book by Rick Page.

"Hope is an essential ingredient of leadership." a Deepak Chopra quote from his book, 'The Soul of Leadership'

Both are accurate statements.
