Leadership, focus, and attention

February 14, 2022

"You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily.  The secret to your success is found in your daily routine". John C. Maxwell

A few days ago I got a series of books from the Harvard Business Review and I just wrapped up book one FOCUS. There was one line that I want to share with you because I believe it encompasses the way all great leaders should lead. In fact, there's a section in the book that talks about the origins of the word "attention" which comes from the Latin word "attendere" which means to "reach toward", which is the best way to explain what leaders should be focused on... those who focus on others inevitably create strong relationships and trust.

Executives who can effectively focus on others are easy to recognize. They are the ones who find the common ground, whose opinions carry the most weight, and with whom other people want to work. They emerge as natural leaders regardless of organizational or social rank. (From the book Focus The HBR Emotional Intelligence Series).

Empowering others is the way to go! Have a great Saturday!

Thank you for reading A Brilliant Tribe.
