Leadership is one of our core values at RedBalloon. I have often been
asked to define leadership especially if the team member is not in a
management role. I say we are all leaders? but I liked this definition. I
do not know who wrote the quote below… It is part of the BigMoo book which
is a collection of ideas put together to raise money for several charities including JDRF.
- Be impatient, don’t tolerate mediocrity.
- Be confident in your ability -? you can make a difference in the world.
- Have an extreme passion for your work and those you are working with.
- Never compromise your integrity.
- Risk is the only reward, without risk there is no benefit.
- Expect isolation, separation and intolerance.
- Take the time to know and connect with worlds that are vastly different
from yours -? your greatest discoveries reside there.
- Dare to be different.
Leadership comes from making a stand for what you believe. And of course never giving up…
