Open Notebook: Perspectives on Leadership
Recently, I’ve encountered a number of thought-provoking ideas on leadership. Here are a number of them I’ve collected together in Scapple.
Happy 400th, HBR IdeaCast!
A leader sees greatness in other people. He nor she can be much of a leader if all she sees is herself.—Maya Angelou
The Best of IdeaCast podcast episode is a great compilation of interview clips sharing perspectives on leadership, values and conduct.
And if you’re looking for more helpful and thought-provoking ideas on professional and personal life, here are some more excellent HBR IdeaCast episodes I still love listening to:
- Taking Control of Your Time
- Can You “Manage” Your Family?
- Whole Foods’ John Mackey on Capitalism’s Moral Code
- Managing the Productivity Paradox
- Yes, Business Relies on Nature
- In a Fast World, Think Slowly
- What Successful People Do Differently
…inventing and pioneering requires a willingness to be misunderstood for long periods of time.—Jeff Bezos
Simon Sinek and the Story of Leadership
This 99u session by Simon Sinek is just phenomenal. Compelling examples, excellent humor and fascinating neurobiology come together to describe who we are and how we become leaders.
Earlier this week, in hopes of connecting the nano to the macro, I showed this to some undergraduate biochemistry students who were learning about neurotransmitter structure and function. They were enthralled, and I likely got a jolt of serotonin and maybe even some oxytocin too.
Love you, 99u!!
