  • Vision and priorities

    An exercise I practice with my clients: Set up apart 15 minutes of your time each day to ask yourself this question: what is important for me in my job right now? Reward my team? Define this new strategy for this new product? Train myself on this new technique? Write down your thoughts and do that during one week. As a result, you will get a clear vision of what the real priorities of your job are.

  • Managing priorities

    There are three types of priorities in a job: strategic, organizational, and operational.
    Strategic refers to long term projects, vision about your role and your mission in the organization in order to grow and improve.
    Organizational refers to setting priorities up, managing your team and putting together an action plan.
    Operational is the tasks you need to perform in your day-to-day job.
    As a leader and a manager in your company, make sure you maintain a right balance between those three types of priorities. Make sure you are not too much operational and hands-on things and that you grow towards being more strategic and visionary.

He leads with his guts and his trust in his crew's ability to face the situation. Getting your team ready for critical situations is about building that trust.

  • Use of power

    Vladimir Poutin is number 1 in the 2013 Forbes ranking world most powerful people. That means he combines power on a lot of people and controls large financial resources. But more than that, this autocratic leader actively uses his power in multiple spheres. How we use power is more important than how much power we have.
