Congratulations to a fantastic group of leaders who joined me for The Leadership Challenge this spring 2018 semester.
The feedback has been substantial and valuable. My view is that most of us learned and applied new thinking and insights in our daily career lives.
Now that this semester is closed out, I’ve decided to keep this site open. After all, career development is not about deadlines; but a ever-growing journey of discovery and light-bulb moments !
The light will always be on here.
It’s been a great privilege to lead and facilitate. Thankyou.
cheers Pete Jeans

“Emotional intelligence can mean the difference between behaving in a socially acceptable way and being considered to be way out of line.
While most people will have heard of emotional intelligence, not many people really know how to spot it – in themselves or in others, ” says Jose M. Mestre, Professor of Emotion and Motivation, Universidad de Cadiz. April 12, 2017.

CEO Magazine says ” the success of an organisation is deeply affected by the decisions of the CEO”. Check out the article at this link. Definitely worth a read.
I’m fascinated by the reported policy gymnastics of corporates. Are apparent decisions like this reflective of leadership attitudes that disrespect consumers? Do we know the whole truth?
Is this collective leadership gone haywire? Or is it a “hero’s” flawed call? We may never know.

A fascinating article from the Australian.
I recommend you review it. Click through the link.

The traditional notion of the “heroic” leader may be just a stereotype.
Or is it?
Crises allow heros to quickly emerge. And, heroes seem to be allocated leadership (almost celebrity) status in their space. Probably fair enough in the emotion of the moment.
And yet, I’ve known “heros” who weren’t stereotypical and were recognised for their quiet “behind-the-scenes” leadership.
The demonstration of leadership in international events and politics recently is interesting.
Effective? Apparently. Time and hindsight often tells.
You probably had to be on the ground inside the circumstances to judge effectiveness.
Certainly compassion and sound judgement seem to be key qualities of effective leaders. Full of leadership. In fact, leaderful.
