In Leadership, Identifying Dreams That Lead To Great Results

Written by Brent Filson

Continued from page 1

Be hopeful: "Hope," said Aristotle, "is a waking dream". Nobody wants to be associated with a leader who thinksrepparttar job can't get done.

Inrepparttar 139910 face of dire circumstances, there is usually hope to find and communicate.

A great leader I knew who consistently had people get more results faster, continually, had a refrain: "You may think you can't meetrepparttar 139911 goals I set for you. But I believe in you and I believe you can and I'll support you in every way possible so you can."

That hopeful refrain hadrepparttar 139912 power of a dream; and inrepparttar 139913 relationships he established, he was able to identify and share in their dreams.

Be scarce: Cultivaterepparttar 139914 art of being scarce. In other words, give them space to get results.

Use this artrepparttar 139915 way a homeopath prepares medicine by diluting drugs which would produce in a healthy person symptoms similar to those ofrepparttar 139916 full-blown disease.

The full-blown disease in this case is total scarcity -- meaningrepparttar 139917 leader is never around. Not being there forrepparttar 139918 people can be a leadership pathology. After all, inrepparttar 139919 historical example, a leader had to GATHER PEOPLE TOGETHER -- leader had to be withrepparttar 139920 people. Many leaders are absent without leave. One secretary described her seldom seen CEO as follows: "He's like Elvis -- There are rumors of sightings of him. The only time we know he's around is when we smell is pipe smoke."

But being withrepparttar 139921 people can be a fault, ifrepparttar 139922 people resent it. They make think you're trying to micro-manage them or are snooping around trying to getrepparttar 139923 goods on them.

The art of being scarce is predicated on your giving themrepparttar 139924 space to do well. The coach of a great Arkansas basketball team said, "I don't want to hamper them by coaching them." Likewise, don't hamperrepparttar 139925 people you lead by leading them in a domineering way.

People's dreams are pathways to their inner heart and their most ardent desires. However, most leaders don't know how to go down those paths. Be helpful, be hopeful, be scarce will help you walk your talk, letting people get great results thoughrepparttar 139926 gift of their dreams.
