“Any person can produce a lot of ideas in a day, there’s no merit on that. Investing time and effort to transform one idea into something meaningful is what makes the difference between average and awesome!”
Learning from other bright minds is a double benefit for those who decide to invest in their own education. It provides an outside approach to problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration that will always result in new knowledge and ideas that fuel the innovative brain with a cornucopia of possibilities. Also, it helps to learn not only from their successes, but also from the failures, which can prevent the wanna-be entrepreneur from making the same mistakes.

Iceland has made headlines recently, and a lot of people think that the reason is fútbol (soccer), when they shocked the world by winning an improbable game against the UK. The dream ended when they lost against France, although they played proudly and changed the way the world looks at the small island from now on.

A very good book about leadership is The weekly coaching conversations by Brian Souza, which is an interesting tale about an experienced leader with sports coaching background and a brand new frontline manager who has no clue on what he’s supposed to do to motivate his team.
The main takeaway I found in this book is this:
For an old school manager working in a highly bureaucratic environment this could present an unrealistic scenario, and he might even say that this can only be done in a person’s church. However, in his book Souza makes a great point when he states that an employee who comes to work feeling frustrated, unmotivated , unappreciated, unimportant or sad will be improductive, and working like every day will likely have a bad effect in her family.
We like to say that family and business are separate, but we cannot switch on and off our brain or our feelings. Putting the interests of our fellow teammates ahead of ours will be always a win-win proposition, but is usually easier to say it, the hard part is to do it. Caring for others will always take care of ourselves and there are many examples of that.
It’s better to be a leader without a title… than just having just a title.
