Recalcitrant Collaborators

It is very hard to get our work done without collaboration.  Sometimes
those collaborators are on our team, sometimes in our organization,
sometimes they are elsewhere in our university, and sometimes they are
outside our university in suppliers, government agencies, etc.  When
collaboration occurs things go well.

Ten Minutes

As all of your know by now, I read a lot from a lot of sources.
Yesterday, a newsletter called Marketplace Moments written by a friend,
Randy Kilgore, reached my desk.  It carries a story which I want to
repeat:
 
"It's December 17, 1941. The citizens of the town of North Platte,
Nebraska heard a rumor that a troop train carrying their sons and
daughters to war would be stopping at the depot in their town for about
ten minutes.

Mastering Q and A

We all do presentations and after the presentation there is always
questions and answers.  While the questions and your answers do not
add all that much content to what you had to say, how you answer
plays into how your audience evaluates you and what you had to say;
presence and presentation again.
 
Today's -- really yesterday's -- reading is a short piece from a
recent Point Lookout newsletter -- Mastering Q and A.

Notes from Leadership Jazz

One of my favorite books on leadership is Leadership Jazz by Max DePree.
Max was chairman of the board of Herman Miller for many years.
Leadership Jazz is primarily a set of personal stories about leadership.
I first read the book about 10 years ago and have found that rereading
it as well as a set of notes that I took one time has really been
helpful.
 
For this weeks reading, I am sending you my notes the book's chapter
on delegation.

A Matter of Confidence

Good morning!  

In my reading this week, I found this short piece by John Baldoni.  In it he talks about the foundational importance of importance and suggests that you can nurture it by "inviting them to look up," by "letting them see you sweat," by "learning from your mistakes," and by "radiating hope."

In the February 23rd and the March 16th issues of the Point Lookout

email newsletter, Rich Brenner and the staff at Chaco Canyon Consulting

<http://www.ChacoCanyon.com> present two helpful pieces on "Recovering

Time."  Given that all of us scramble to find more time for our work,

I thought that I would share their ideas with you.
