Leadership Promises - How Do You Expect People to Respond?

June 30How Do You Expect People to Respond?
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit." Proverbs 18:21Few muscles in the body wield more power than the little one inside the mouth. Leaders who understand this can greatly increase their influence. Many have said the American culture has witnessed four styles of leadership since 1950, each having different expectations concerning how followers should respond to words:

     1. Military Commander - Leaders came out of the army and expected unquestioning obedience from subordinates.
     2. Chief Executive Officer - Most leaders migrated to a different style driven by vision and shared by everyone. Yet it was still top down and possibly very narrow in scope.
     3. Coach - Leaders moved toward a coach model where they saw employees as players on a team. This produced even better results, but still limited the possibilities to the vision of the coach.

GIVE YOURSELF AWAY

A Song by WILLIAM MCDOWELL says
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
[Verse 1:]
Here I am
Here I stand
Lord, my life is in your hands
Lord, I'm longing to see
Your desires revealed in me
I give myself away
[Verse 2:]
Take my heart
Take my life
As a living sacrifice
All my dreams all my plans
Lord I place them in your hands
[Chorus:]
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
[Chorus:]
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
[Bridge: x7]
My life is not my own
To you I belong
I give myself, I give myself to you

Who Really Gets Into Harvard Business School

Who gets into the world's most prestigious school of business?

If you ask Dee Leopold, Harvard Business School's managing director of
MBA admissions and financial aid, that question you get a rather
unconventional answer.

It's people who are obviously smart, driven and ambitious. But more
than that it is people who Leopold believes can meaningfully add to
the conversations in a classroom. So she seeks "voice"--the ability to
contribute diverse viewpoints in a class based on their life
experiences to date--and "personal qualities"--the values one brings
to school.
"The way I organize my head is in a two-by-two matrix," she told me in
a recent interview. "One axis is work experience—or the voice you
bring to the class—and the other axis is personal qualities—what kind
of person you are. We don't have people in the lower left corner.
It would be great to have people coming from mutual backgrounds with
amazing personal qualities who will …

Who's the Boss?

"Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free. And you, masters, do the same thing to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him."         Ephesians 6:5-9
The principles Paul taught to owners and slaves apply today to employees and employers. He twice states that we are not to be people pleasers. We aren't to work while others watch, then slack off when alone. We are to render service as though we are working for God. Not only does God always watch us, He rewards the good we do.
People may forget how fast you did your last job, but t…
A Watchman is
1) to wait and watch what God will order,
(2) to watch over and superintend the people.
We are called to stand firm, and make others fall in line with God and
stand strong in the narrow way till the end.
"Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel:
therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him
not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to
save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his
blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and
he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die
in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a
righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity,
and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast
not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness
which he hath do…

Leadership: Vessels for Victory

June 13
Vessels for Victory
"When the children of Israel cried out to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliverer for the children of Israel, who delivered them . . ."  Judges 3:9,15
True leaders always find a way to help the team win. Othniel found his people surrounded by enemies from Mesopotamia. He stepped forward, led the armies of Israel against a pagan king, and prevailed. His victory led to forty years of peace. Later, Moab formed an alliance with the Ammonites and Amalekites and attacked Israel. The Hebrews suffered defeat and served these enemies for eighteen years. When the people cried out to the Lord, Ehud stepped forward and led them to victory. This peace lasted for eighty years. A third judge, Shamgar, personally struck down 600 Philistines and rallied his people over Philistia.
What can we learn from this? True leadership starts when a person:
   1. Perceives a need-spots a specific problem.
   2. Possesses a gift-has the competence to address the need.

WHY FARMERS ARE POOR?

One unique and cruel incongruity is that in numerous nations over the world, the hungriest individuals are smallholder Farmers. In this carton collections written by Malaka Gharib and  Kelly Hauser you will notice how the Farmer season (the period when a Farming family's yield stockpiles begin to run out) influences a family's capacity to survive and a likely solution to end this menace.

Leadership Promises - Help Those Who Have Helped You

June 11
"On that day King Ahasuerus gave Queen Esther the house of Haman, the enemy of the Jews. And Mordecai came before the king, for Esther had told how he was related to her. So the king took off his signet ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it to Mordecai; and Esther appointed Mordecai over the house of Haman." Esther 8:1-2
Twice Mordecai protected the king from destructive leaders-first from the men who intended to kill the king, and then from the man who intended to kill the queen and her people-and twice he was rewarded. He reaped the benefits of a track record that showed him to be a leader who could be trusted. He demonstrated that a leader cannot be successful unless other people want him to be.
Who has helped you to become more successful as a leader? How have you helped and rewarded them?
Excerpt from The Maxwell Leadership bible.
The word wireless is dictionary defined "having no wires " . In
networking terminology , wireless is the term used to describe any
computer network where there is no physical wired connection between
sender and receiver, but rather the network is connected by radio
waves and or microwaves to maintain communications. Wireless
networking utilizes specific equipment such as NICs and Routers in
place of wires.
What exactly is a 'G' or 'Generation'?
In a nutshell, each Generation is defined as a set of telephone
network standards, which detail the technological implementation of a
particular mobile phone system.
G = 1G (GPRS)
E = EDGE (2.5G)
3G =3G
H (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) = 3.5G (HSPA+), HSPA 14.4
(really just a 3G standard, marketed as 4G)
4G=4G
In order of speed: 4G > H > 3G > E

1G TECHNOLOGY 1G refers to the first generation of wireless telephone
technology, mobile telecommunications which was first introduced in
1980s and completed in e…
