Leadership: Do you have what it takes?….

Did you receive this month’s PM Network magazine? The cover is titled Leadership – Do you have what it takes? If you haven’t read this month’s PM Network, you must lay your hands on a copy or read a copy online at –  http://www.pmi.org/Knowledge-Center/Publications-PM-Network.aspx

Articles titled “Fast track to the top”, The Upside of Failure, Building Leaders, and “The Young and the Restless” give you some good ideas to think about. I particularly liked this edition as it is forward looking, and motivational.

 Knowledge is power, but only if it is applied. Reading a great magazine article without thinking about how to apply the lessons to your situation is as good as not reading it at all. Think about the last conference, seminar, class you attended or article/book you read and then did not do a thing about it. Don’t let this PM Network edition gather dust. Pick up one idea or skill to develop and apply it to your career. Do it now!  Go find that magazine and decide on something to improve.

If nothing else, read the articles and send some fan emails to the authors of the articles that resonated with you. A simple act of writing a fan email will set your thoughts rolling.

If you liked this post please forward it to others and let me know if you sent that fan email.
