    QUOTE OF THE WEEK

    "Leadership is based on inspiration, not domination; on cooperation, not intimidation."

    -- William Arthur Wood


    TEN LEADERSHIP PROPOSITIONS

    by Peter Koestenbaum


    1. "Be effective. Emphasize results, both through management by objectives and by process.
    2. Understand that leadership is a mind-set and a pattern of behaviors. It is to have made a habit of a new way of thinking and a new way of acting.
    3. Be prepared to wake up and to change your perceptions and concepts radically (transformation, conversion) with respect to the human potential and to cultures (corporate, ethnic, national).
    4. Lead by teaching leadership, by empowering, by fostering autonomy, providing direction, and lending support. A teacher is an experienced and relentless learner.
    5. Have faith that leadership can be learned and that it can be taught.
    6. Know that the leadership mind can hold opposing ideas and contradictory feelings at one and the same time. It can achieve comfort with the tensions of ambiguity, polarity, and uncertainty.
    7. Be a leader in all six arenas of life: work, family, self, ecological responsibility, social responsibility, and financial strength.
    8. Inform your products and services with a leadership teaching component. You do not sell a product or service; you help customers buy leadership in their affairs.
    9. Use both reasons or models (living from the "outside in") and instincts or intuition (living from the "inside out').
    10. Expect leadership to lead you and your organization to a higher state of health (Koestenbaum, 2002, p. 23-26)."

    COACHING CALL TO ACTION


    Holding a position of leadership is a substantial responsibility. If you are a leader or working to become a leader, consider often your own behavior and attitudes. Check in with yourself and ask, "Am I "behaving" like a leader in all aspects of my life?" If yes, congratulations! If no, what will you commit to this week that makes a difference in your leadership behavior and effectiveness?
