Tomorrow all of us probably we will lead of an organization or at least a part of an organization. . . . MBE provided us with such a lot of weapons that we are almost ready to go out in real world and face all the challenges waiting there for us. . . . . . However is that so simple . . . ?
Could all these weapons turn against us? I strongly believe yes. .. . It is easy to fall into the trap of the “Knowledge-leader” who knows everything because he/she studied in Warwick. ... . Yeah…………..
Well I do not argue we know some things however we should never forget that Excellence is a journey not a point. . . We are far away from the point and when we finally go to the point it will be the last thing that we will understand. . . . .
Taking decisions in that concept could lead to a disaster. .. Not asking the others and avoiding collaboration can be some symptoms of it. . . . Mental models like, we are the best of Warwick and all the others are “illiterate” and useless can be catastrophic for an organization and for our career as well. In my eyes is like believing that we are GODS and personally I do not neither like nor believe at him/her/it call it as you wish. ..
Thus being open minded and participate promote cooperation and participation is important. .. The power that we might have should be translated into creativity not into arrogance. . . Because at the end of the day:
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of the other “Gandhi”
This why I adore servant leadership. . . .
