10 shifts in perspective for real Leadership

The Leadershipfreak Blog is one of the internet’s most visited blogs on Leadership.  In this post, there’s a discussion of ten shifts in focus that managers need to make if they are to become effective leaders.  None of them are difficult, but they do require effort and a shift in behaviour.

I wouldn’t like to prioritise any of them as they’re all important, but “Problems to solutions” fits with my “glass half full” perspective.

Top ten leadership shifts:

  • Me to we – humility.
  • Doing to delegating – letting go.
  • Talk to action – initiative.
  • Answers to questions – curiosity.
  • Problems to solutions – optimism.
  • Past to future – forward focus.
  • Control to release – trust.
  • Avoiding to addressing – courage.
  • Urgent to important – priorities.
  • Receiving to giving – service.
