What exactly does this even mean when applied to leadership? How do you move with the times without dis-stabilising the very foundation and essence of your leadership?
For those who do not have depth in their leadership, this might not make much sense to you but for those leaders who do have depth and a stable foundation upon which they have built their leadership on, this will make truckloads of sense to you.
In my opinion, the idea of even creating ‘the times’ is in order to keep things new and fresh; the reason why one thing is in season today and then becomes obsolete the next is because things need to be kept appealing and less complex. The issue with this when applied to leadership is this: It gets tiring when you have to keep changing just to fit into a mould of what’s in and what’s not in, at different times. So, does this then mean that you never upgrade or update? Absolutely not! Skills, marketing styles, sales channels and operational techniques might require an upgrade at one time or another but even when this happens, make sure it’s for the purpose of making your life and/or job easier and making your business more profitable. Otherwise, it would be classified under waste and loss.
What I am saying is this: never trade your depth and stability for constantly moving trends and ever changing times. Your depth and stability is what has brought you to the point you are at now; those hardly change with the times. Your character and values are NOT subject to trends. I do not suppose it makes sense to change from being an honest person to becoming a chancer, a thief or one who indulges in embezzlement or chicanery simply because times have changed and you have to move with it.
Here’s the point I’m making: when you are moving with the times, weigh the cost against your stability and your reputation. Consider if it is a worthy investment or not.
Do not short-change yourself by trading in both the long-term and the short-term for seasonal trends.
Remember this: Trends only last for a season!

Hello and welcome back from what I hope was a worthwhile weekend.
I started on information last week and I’ll be talking a bit more about it today. Let’s dive straight in!
The information you receive is guided by two factors; values and purpose. These two factors determine the ‘weight’ of the information you receive and its relevance to you.
Values and purpose act like a sift and shift process. Your values sifts the information that you receive, while your purposes shifts what is not relevant and retains what is relevant.
Purpose: The very reason you take in information is because there is a reason you need that information. This could be because of your current situation, condition position or role; past experiences you need to address/deal with; and an ongoing situation, condition, position or role. It could be for personal development reasons, educational purposes, entertainment needs or just purely for fun. Whatever your reason is for taking in and using information, you must realise that information plays a huge role in forming who you are and who you become. You are ultimately a result of the information you have taken in over the years and you’ll keep evolving, stagnating, improving or declining as a result of the information you will consistently expose yourself to; and retain.
Values: It acts as a filter to sift the information you receive. The soundness of your values will determine the soundness of the information that remains with you after the sifting process.
Your ability to sift and shift the information you receive will save you precious time in the long run plus you’ll also improve your communication, decision-making and conflict resolution skills.
Never take information for granted, it could mean the make or beak of some really crucial aspect of your personal and/or professional life.
Be sure to receive and retain information that clearly has a role to play in your life and that is relevant for your improvement and advancement.
Don’t be deceived, the information you receive and retain will either cause you to improve and advance or it will cause you to decline and stagnate!
