Community Admins:

For decades, leaders have placed the highest value on managing ‘top talent,’ and have focused on hiring 'only the best and the brightest.’ But times have changed, and now it is clear that positive team chemistry and effective team development are the key factors in leadership success. This is true at every organizational level – from startup companies, to innovation teams, to established institutions that are growing, acquiring, and transforming operations. This community will serve all leaders who seek to 'team well, and prosper.

Planning is critical on this point in my view as is the ability to understand what you are doing in terms of direct and indirect impact. In my experience, a deep analysis of the situation, brain storming process, plans and risks into a process where plans are measured and set against the actual environment (as much as possible) have a higher chance of working out. That said you will always have a variance to plan.. its what happens when people are involved, the most unpredicable element in the universe!!..

The need to understand culture is more important then language in my view. If you have a good emotional quotant (can read people well and control your emotions), good leadership skills and a collaborative appraoch to boot, then you will place high value on the interests of others in markets you may not fully understand.. Being successful in any market starts and ends with culture in my view. Understand this, and the rest will follow. Neglect it and you will never be truly successful in the that marketplace.

I figured out the planning by one book from around 10 years regarding " How to Plan Your Life", this book was in Arabic, but it taught me about mission, vision, and Goal settings. now I'm looking for mobile applications like goal tracker as a goal planning tool.

In successful business, great leaders nurture talent from the inside The most successful businesses don’t recruit leaders, they grow their own. But how do you grow leaders? Studies show the single most important factor in sustained corporate excellence is the quality of leadership talent nurtured and developed internally. And executives promoted from within — including CEOs — have a much higher success rate than outsiders.

Lessons need not be negative! My most important lesson for 2014 was that honoring and respecting people for what they do to bring about positive change in the world as well as your company is just about the most important thing a leader can do. The payoff is enormous!
