What Businesses Can Learn from Nonprofit Leaders (Click Here)

  

In yesterday's post, we focused on what the public and nonprofit sectors can learn from a for-profit mindset. 

Today in Big Ideas, Loren Gary's focus is the reverse: his discussion pinpoints public and nonprofit sector strengths that for-profit leaders can benefit from. 

His 6 critical recommendations come from former Marines Rye Barcott and Jake Cusack, two young business leaders with cross-sector experience whose stories are included in the new book "Passion & Purpose: Stories from the Best and Brightest Young Business Leaders," by John Coleman, Daniel Gulati, and W. Oliver Segovia.

Join us today to move your for-profit organization into the wisdom and arena of public and nonprofit leadership.

Warm Regards,

How to Achieve the Right Blend of Creative Inputs

There is a certain rhythm to teams that work well together.

Think of the 2004 World Champion Boston Red Sox. Or the 1975 Big Red Machine out of Cincinnati. Team chemistry that brings championships depends on an awareness of your teammates' strengths and weaknesses, and an ability to play to those strengths, while supporting people in their deficiencies.

Giving and garnering critical, creative feedback is an essential element of great teams. Creating a productive blend of teammates who can do that in a positive manner, it turns out, matters a lot.

Today in Team Building, Loren Gary explains that teams that are too new, or those that have too many veterans, tend to fail. Teams that combine the two profiles, according to the best research, succeed at high levels.

Join Loren, and get inside the composition of teams that work.

What Does Leadership Look Like in the Movies?

What Does Leadership Look Like in the Movies? (Click Here)

  

From Top Gun to Patton, from Harry Potter to Indiana Jones, the movies have a certain style and set of reference points in portraying leadership that sell tickets, and can make your hair stand up.

With BecomeALeader's Jennifer Garvey Berger speaking this week at Lucas Films in Los Angeles, the subject of leadership in film is a concept that she carefully puts to its paces.

Today in Big Ideas, she describes an archetype leadership story that undergirds many popular films, and then asks--what it the story were about a leader inside an organization, actually working on the ground to develop the troops? 

Join Jennifer today, and get leadership insights from Hollywood before she gets on the airplane.
