Example text

Before reading the "Seven Failings", my attempts to 'improve' my leadership were misguided attempts to learn from inspirational stories/examples of excellent leaders. Although these were extremely interesting and often compelling dramas, I found it almost impossible to apply any of the lessons to my situation. “The Seven Failings book, and your podcasts, have provided me with a practical set of tools to increase my, and my team's, productivity. The Seven Failings has increased my awareness of my motivations and actions and their impact on my team.

And not the management gurus we’ve come to rely on.  I was really acting like an opportunist, mistakenly believing I had a strategy. Not only that I lost the support and good will of my business partners. They saw things very differently from the way I did. We just couldn’t work together any more.  I won’t spend time here sharing the bottomless despair I went through as a leader at that time, but I know I need to share that lesson with others. Will you let me help you to benefit from the mistakes I made?

Isn’t it?  You aren’t even completing all the things that you already want to do.  First of all, the usual management mythology states that ‘managers are supposed to do things’.  So you look for more projects to do. Secondly, if you’re an entrepreneur or an opportunist, you are ALWAYS on the lookout for the latest and greatest opportunity.  It’s a vicious circle.  It screams OPPORTUNIST!  since when is more the answer to having too much? The Challenge Facing The Opportunistic Leader Why on earth would you spend time looking for more things to do?
