Five leadership lessons

Dave Ferguson has posted his five leadership lessons. Here they are:

1. The “God-Thing” Comes Before The Vision
Most leaders make the mistake of thinking that change starts with their vision; change starts with a “God-thing”. ...

2. Money Always Follows Vision
People give money to a compelling cause with a clear vision. ...

3. Make It Fit On A Napkin.
If it can’t be explained on a napkin it is too complicated. ...

4. Lead With A “Yes” And Ask “How” Later
If you want to lead in bringing about innovation learn to lead with a “yes” and not “how”. ...

5. Take Risks On Emerging Leaders & Artists
Resist the urge of telling young leaders to wait a few years; they need and deserve opportunities to lead, so take a risk on them now! ...
