Contribute toward the upcoming theme- Character in Leadership
Character in Leadership, deadline- October 22, 2013
Character means different things for different people. The latter may agree on, at least, one thing about character: Character (its presence or absence) has implications. In this edition, we would like to entertain diverse views about character, its relevance and impact, the most important character elements, and how to develop character, and more.
You may contribute an article or a story toward answering one or more of the following guiding questions:
- What is and what isn’t character? How it is different from other similar terms?
- Is character relevant in leadership like other leadership attributes such as communication, teamwork, and so on? If relevant, how much relevant?
- You might have lists of reasons why character is relevant in leadership. But, is character a deal maker or breaker in leadership? There are two school of thoughts: Character doesn’t matter in leadership- It is personal, and Character matters in leadership. Make your arguments in support of the one you agree.
- What are the most important character traits? And why are they important than other character traits?
- What are the prices a leader may pay because of lack of character? And how to avoid or mitigate these prices?
- What are some of the most important steps to develop character in leadership?
- What kind of steps organizations can take to help their leaders develop character?
- And many more…
You can contribute:
- Interview… You may answer some or all of the guiding questions under each theme or add some of your own into the mix. You may also use these guiding questions to interview someone you think qualifies (someone who has experience). If you need further info in this regard, please contact us…
