A leader does not have to be perfect but has to know how to motivate employees

What is important in the entrepreneurship of the 21st century, and how to hire employees who will build a global company with you? These and other key questions for all of those who intend to start a business, or have already done so, were discussed by Russel Dalgeish from Scotland and Michael Anderson from California, based on their experience, and within the Leadership tour organized by the Croatian Office for Creativity and Innovation. A lecture about the new age of leadership was held yesterday in Westin hotel in Zagreb, where Russel Dalgeish from Scotland and Michael Anderson from California shared their experiences from the modern business world. After Zagreb, where they had the audience of some 40 interested young and older (potential) entrepreneurs, Russel and Michael will visit Ljubljana, Rijeka, and Belgrade these following days, as a part of the Leadership tour. Let’s see what was discussed in Zagreb. There has never been a better time for entrepreneurship Russel is a serial entrepreneur, investor, innovator and business advisor, and in his presentation, he highlighted that there has never been a better time for starting the business than today. Modern technologies, namely, enable cheap travel and free communication with anyone in the world, which makes expansion of business strategy and global success of any company in any country significantly easier. In entrepreneurship of the 21st century the most important thing is to use the opportunities offered, and in that sense, first and foremost, are of importance social networks so that the offer can be communicated to the users, Russel thinks. He takes Twitter as an example since he considers it...

Exploring Forward-Thinking Workplaces™ with Michael Anderson

Welcome to our interview with Michael Anderson. Michael is an Educator, Speaker, Author, Expert, and his new book Soul-Centered Leadership is a guide for conscious business people who are ready to lead and create through and with their higher power. Welcome Michael, and thank you for contributing to the questions that are at the heart of Container13. How can we create workplaces where more voices matter, people thrive & find meaning, and change & innovation happen naturally? Let’s look at the workplace and figure out why that’s not happening because I think when we are at our most centered self—emotionally, mentally and spiritually healthiest—those things do happen. I studied spiritual psychology, and what we do when we find things aren’t working the way we want it to, we look into the reason why and take that out. I think our nature is to be like that. To me,  evolution is getting rid all the things in the way of our most conscious and our being the healthiest we can be. What does it take to get an employee’s full attention and best performance? I teach leadership and I don’t think we can get an engaged performing employee unless we as leaders show up like that as well. I’ll give you a real life example. I was facilitating a strategic retreat with a CEO’s executive team. During the first hour of the retreat, they shared their company information and values with me. One of their values was Tight. I asked the CEO, “What do you mean by Tight?” He said, “That means everybody shows up engaged, proactive, on-time, everybody’s got their work ready....

When asked about the qualities a leader should possess nowadays, he lists authenticity before all else. „Simply said, a leader has to be himself. When you behave in a way that is not natural to you, you lose a part of your personality. Another quality a leader has to have is the ability to tell the truth. Namely, when everything is right and a team/company/corporation achieves desired results, it is easy to be honest. But, when there are challenging times in a team, or when changes happen in the company, or on the market, one should be strong enough and tell the truth. A leader takes responsibility for both success and failures. Team members will know how to appreciate his effort and engagement during hard times,...
