Business Writing Tips

Leadership Tip of the Month:
Become a Fearless Leader

A fearless leader is willing to fail to find new opportunities and test the limits of his abilities. Set a great example in your organization by developing this competency:

  1. Look fear in the face -- and get to the root of it. Ask: What makes you fearful in your career -- and why? What's the worst thing that could happen if you took a calculated risk?
  2. Acknowledge the positives. Review risks you have taken recently that have succeeded. What made them work? How can you incorporate those techniques into other potentially fearful situations?
  3. Challenge yourself. Accept at least one new opportunity, however large or small, each month.
  4. Develop a fearless team. Create a culture that accepts failure and rewards learning. When failure occurs, ask "What did you learn?" rather than "What went wrong?"

Fact of the Month:

One-third of U.S. employees work for someone who is younger than them; 15 percent take orders from a boss at least 10 years their junior.
