I am passionate about developing leadership talent. If you click here, you will be able to hear from me why I developed this passion. By clicking here you can watch my 4 minute video on managing mavericks.
My aim is to explore how leadership talent can be developed by applying talent management and social intelligence competences. All leaders whether formal or otherwise, rely on their reputation and their social intelligence in any given circumstance, to influence others to cooperate and work with them. Most leaders find that the best results are when they seek to first understand before being understood. All leaders are engaged in social networking.
Leaders seek knowledge form others to hone and build their skills. This blog is essential reading for individuals that need to be at the top of their game and harnessing the abilities of those they lead and influence.
John Maxwell said 'Leadership is influence - nothing more, nothing less'
