You are an Expert

October 24, 2011

Someone once said that an expert is an individual who knows more and more about less and less. Every organization needs an array of experts who continually improve the business strategies, tools, and tactics for all in the workplace. Business leaders in these continued challenging times are tasked with getting better at what they do and at acquiring the talent needed to improve on that basic plan.

There are mounds of training and information available through Dale Carnegie that gets you to that expert status. People look up to experts. Experts have to earn the title of expert through experience and education. Leaders should assess their status by looking at these ingredients.

E. Enthusiasm is central to leadership success. Upbeat and focused leadership makes everyone better.

X. There is an X-factor in excellence. It is the benchmark in leadership skill and capability. It is an open book in any organization. Everyone notices excellence.

P. Passion makes leadership come to life. Vivid definition and an overt love of mission and values creates clear direction in these challenging times.

E. Energy is contagious. It makes meetings come to life. It makes goals and objectives achievable. When the energy of leaders is transferred to the rest of the company  magic happens.

R. Righteousness in leadership is almost theological in strategy. Doing good things and involving others are by definition successful by nature.

T. Trust is essential for leadership expertise. No organization moves forward without this basic human variable. Alliances, collaboration and relationships begin and end with trust.

Leadership is a learned and borrowed expertise.

The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don’t like their rules, whose would you use?
