A very good morning to you and thanks for dropping in.
Over the next few weeks, I will be talking about things that I feel strongly about and also consider to be the realities of leadership.
We will start off by looking at a very basic yet vital element; Information. I’ll talk about the key things that relate to information and its relevance to our position and function as leaders.
Information is a very important part of our everyday life. As a leader, you depend on information in order for you to function and produce results. Information is needed in order for you to communicate well, make sound decisions, move from place to place, offer direction, manage change, handle conflicts, make profit, etc.
In recent times, we seem to be experiencing a huge overflow of information swirling around us. The amount of information going around could easily leave us overwhelmed or in some cases, almost drowning and barely staying afloat. It seems like the very thing that should be getting us out of stuck positions, confused states, stagnation and/or retrogression just seems to leave us more disoriented and totally perplexed. So, what can be done about the speed and intensity at which information is flying around? Personally, nothing! I am not going to start a one woman campaign to stop the flow of information. That would be highly unnecessary, futile and unwise. What I can do however, is to show you how to sift through information and also show you what you can do to determine which information is relevant and vital, for the improvement of your personal and professional life.
When it comes to information, there are two major things that matter and they are;
1. The quality of information you receive.
2. What you do with the information you receive.
We’ll continue next week.
Until then keep on; leading right and living light
