Page 1 “The Leader Who Had No Title is a game-changing book; read it and get Title, visit The Leader q/Discover Your Destiny - Robin Sharma. It's about Leading Without a Title.” ~ Robin Sharma. We are all faced with a mission-critical choice: start to make the Lead Without a Title philosophy a deep.
The people. I have zero plans to leave. He stressed to be helpful at all times because it can make a difference. And that changed the game completely. A job was nothing more than a rough way to get through the hours of my days rather than the gorgeous opportunity to grow into the all I was meant to be.
Through his teachings, the Prophet also built future leaders who were able to continue his legacy until today. They are the 4 Caliphs who ruled the Islam Empire with justice and fairness and brought about economic and social success.
In my career, I have seen individuals who have led without titles, inspiring colleagues and staff by being having some if not all the traits in this principle. Turbulent Times Build Great Leaders In this chapter, Sharma proceeds to give more insightful principles for leadership.
The story telling continues with Blake meeting more mentors to explain in depth this second principle. Life is filled with challenges and success; issues and solutions; and ups and downs. Speak with candour, is the first rule a leader has to observe.
This is an important trait as a leader has to be truthful and speak the truth at all times. The Prophet would only speak the truth or else he would remain silent, that is how a leader must act at all times. To speak the truth and not be afraid to do so with quiet conviction. The second rule that Sharma has shared is Prioritize. A leader must be able to prioritize his actions. Sharma shared a simple example in his book, Michelangelo when he sculpts he would chisel away all the unwanted stone pieces until he creates his masterpiece.
This is how exactly a leader must act during turbulent times, to focus and keep on prioritizing and doing the things that important and that will bring results rather than making loud actions that will not be fruitful;. Sharma spoke about moving away from chaotic complexity to elegant simplicity; and this can be done through focus, focus and focus. This rule breeds the third rule that is Adversity breeds opportunity.
Every storm has a silver lining after and this is what a leader has to always remember and focus on.
A leader focusses on the opportunity that is manifest itself and realizes that there is a learning process through the adversity. Again I look at The Prophet for a similar example of this rule.
The Prophet lived a hard life, full of adversities; yet he always looked at the opportunity beyond the adversities. The Prophet was visionary, as a Messenger of Allah; he was protected and guided in all his actions. This is what every Muslim are taught to have faith and believe that Allah is Merciful and will always bestow success and opportunities to those who focus and patience. The fourth rule is Respond versus react, Sharma further explains that when turbulence strikes a lot of people just respond to the turbulence by trying to douse the flames.
A good leader is someone who can rise above the turbulence and react with solutions. A leader is someone who is calm against all the chaos and is able to think clearly and strategize and provide solutions. In Islam this is a fundamental teaching, to be patient and not simply react with emotion and the solution will come to you.
The last rule is Kudos for everyone. A leader is a person that nurtures and motivates their team members to heights of greatness and not to breed individualistic nature.
Sometimes fear will set in and can make a person be uncertain, a true leader will not let the fear overwhelm and be focus and be clear with what needs to be done. I was shipped off to the war in Iraq. And though being in the military did bring structure to my life, it also brought with it experiences that continue to haunt me to this day. I saw soldiers who were not more than kids brutally maimed and tragically hurt. And I watched any of the mild enthusiasm that may have existed in my former self wither away as I sank deeply into the muddy, desperate awareness of what my life had become.
And I carried the ghosts of battle with me wherever I went. One day, it was suddenly time to come home. It happened so fast it was dizzying. I was put on a transport plane, flown home, and within a day or two after some routine medical checks, handed my papers. On a sunny autumn afternoon, I walked out onto a city street and came to a frightening conclusion: I was completely on my own again.
My biggest struggle was trying to find my way back into a society that had forgotten me. My body hurt. The things I used to love doing seemed so trivial and boring to me. My life lacked any sense of purpose or meaning. Perhaps one of the best gifts my parents gave me was a love of learning, especially through books. Within the covers of a single book are ideas that, if acted upon, have the power to rescript every part of your life.
Few things are as smart as investing in becoming a better thinker and developing a stronger mind. Relentless learning is one of the main traits of an open and powerful person. And an obsessive and ongoing self-education is one of the greatest survival tactics to get through turbulent times. The best people always seem to have the biggest libraries. So I began to work at a bookshop down in SoHo. I was frequently reprimanded by my manager, and I fully expected to be fired.
I was generally unfocused, nothing of a team player, and less than average at my work. My love of books was all that saved me. And so I was kept on. But only by a thread. One day, a miracle of sorts showed up in my life. When I least expected something good to happen, good came hunting me down.
And that changed the game completely. A most curious stranger visited me at the bookstore. That in the middle of difficulty lives opportunity. And that each of us is built to win—in both work and life. About The Author.
