Robin S. Sharma jest wlascicielem Sharma Leadership International oraz autorem kilku ksiazek nt. przywodztwa, w tym 2 bestseller’ow pt. “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” oraz  „MegaLiving” ( o jego ksiazkach, w tym jednej przetlumaczonej na j.polski,  mozna przeczytac TUTAJ). W swiatowym rankingu „Leadership Gurus” znajduje sie na drugim miejscu tuz za John Maxwell’em, a przed takimi tuzami jak Tom Peters, Steven Covey, czy Anthony Robins.
(BTW wszystkim zainteresowanym tematyka przywodztwa goraco polecam serwis http://www.leadershipgurus.net)

 

Dewiza firmy Robina brzmi:

Helping People and Organizations to Lead without a Title„.

 

To co jest interesujace w jego dzialalnosci, to fakt, ze skupia sie zarowno na przywodztwie w pracy, jak i w zyciu w ogole. Ponizej przedstawiony jest „dekalog” Robina – 10 rzeczy, ktore wg niego autentyczni przywodcy robia dobrze i nieustannie. Warto zwrocic uwage, ze wsrod tych 10 najwazniejszych cech dobrych przywodcow jest troska o siebie i o swoje zdrowie. O rownowage w calym swoim zyciu. Chcialbym szczegolnie podkreslic ten wlasnie element, bo z moich doswiadczen wynika, ze w ogromnej ilosci przypadkow zle zrozumiana ambicja „bycia liderem” konczy sie pracoholizmem i absolutnym brakiem rownowagi pomiedzy zyciem zawodowym i prywatnym.

 

Strona internetowa Robina http://www.robinsharma.com pelna jest roznorodnych zasobow, wlaczajac w to wiele bezplatnych nagran nt. rozwoju osobistego. Serdecznie polecam!
Jedno z nich opisujace, 5 form bogactwa mozna znalezc TUTAJ. Warto posluchac chocby ze wzgledu na te czesc, w ktorej Robin mowi o zabawie i radosci w zyciu.

 

 

Zapraszam do dekalogu Robin’a.

„What would your life look like if you had absolutely no fear? What kinds of things would you do if you lived from a frame of reference that your thoughts literally could form your world? How brightly would your light shine if you stepped out of the limitations that are keeping you small, and stretched yourself well past your comfort zone into the place that you know, deep within, you are meant to be? Authentic leadership is all about being the person you know in your heart you have always been destined to be. Authentic leadership does not come from your title or from the size of your paycheck. Instead, this form of leadership comes from your being and the person that you are.

 

 

Here are 10 things that authentic leaders do on a regular basis:

 

1. They speak their truth. In business today, we frequently ‚swallow our truth’. We say things to please others and to look good in front of The Crowd. Authentic leaders are different. They consistently talk truth. They would never betray themselves by using words that are not aligned with who they are. This does not give anyone a license to say things that are hurtful to people. Speaking truth is simply about being clear, being honest, and being authentic.

 

2. They lead from the heart. Business is about people. Leadership is about people. The best leaders wear their hearts on their sleeves and are not afraid to show their vulnerability. They genuinely care about other people and spend their days developing the people around them. They are like the sun: the sun gives away all it has to the plants and the trees. But in return, the plants and the trees always grow toward the sun.

 

3. They have rich moral fiber. Who you are speaks far more loudly than anything you could ever say. Strength of character is true power — and people can feel it a mile away. Authentic leaders work on their character. They walk their talk and are aligned with their core values. They are noble and good. And in doing so, people trust, respect, and listen to them.

 

4. They are courageous. It takes a lot of courage to go against the crowd. It takes a lot of courage to be a visionary. It takes a lot of inner strength to do what you think is right even though it may not be easy. We live in a world where so many people walk the path of least resistance. Authentic leadership is all about taking the road less traveled and doing, not what is easy, but what is right.

 

5. They build teams and create communities. One of the primary things that people are looking for in their work experience is a sense of community. In the old days, we got our community from where we lived. We would have block parties and street picnics. In the new age of work, employees seek their sense of community and connection from the workplace. Authentic leaders create workplaces that foster human linkages and lasting friendships.

 

6. They deepen themselves. The job of the leader is to go deep. Authentic leaders know themselves intimately. They nurture a strong self-relationship. They know their weaknesses and play to their strengths. And they always spend a lot of time transcending their fears.

 

7. They are dreamers. Einstein said that „Imagination is more important than knowledge.” It is from our imaginations that great things are born. Authentic leaders dare to dream impossible dreams. They see what everyone else sees and then dream up new possibilities. They spend a lot of time with their eyes closed creating blueprints and fantasies that lead to better products, better services, better workplaces, and deeper value. How often do you close your eyes and dream?

 

8. They care for themselves. Taking care of your physical dimension is a sign of self-respect. You can’t do great things at work if you don’t feel good. Authentic leaders eat well, exercise, and care for the temples that are their bodies. They spend time in nature, drink plenty of water, and get regular massages so that, physically, they are operating at planet-class levels of performance.

 

9. They commit to excellence rather than perfection. No human being is perfect. Every single one of us is a work in progress. Authentic leaders commit themselves to excellence in everything that they do. They are constantly pushing the envelope and raising their standards. They do not seek perfection and have the wisdom to know the difference. What would your life look like if you raised your standards well beyond what anyone could ever imagine of you?

 

10. They leave a legacy. To live in the hearts of the people around you is to never die. Success is wonderful, but significance is even better. You were made to contribute and to leave a mark on the people around you. In failing to live from this frame of reference, you betray yourself. Authentic leaders are constantly building their legacies by adding deep value to everyone that they deal with and leaving the world a better place in the process.”

    Jakoś jestem sceptyczny wobec tego typu poradników (nie tylko tyczacych tego tematu), najczęściej bazuje to wszystko na jakichś uogólnieniach i chwytnych hasłach. Jakby poszukać, to pewnie bez problemu da się znaleźć dobrych przywódców, którzy są na opak z tymi radami; i złych – stosujących się. Może nawet tych drugich będzie więcej, bo jak ktoś ma przywództwo we krwi, to nie szuka porad w poradnikach… 😉
