4/1/14: By and About Leaders

  |   By and About Leaders Print Friendly and PDF

I think that one of the best ways to learn leadership isn’t studying “leadership” at all. Instead, study individual leaders in their natural habitat and decide what they do that you want to try. Articles by and about leaders and interviews with them are mini-case studies that show you an actual leader in a real situation.

That’s why, every week, I bring you a selection of post about individual leaders. This week I’m pointing you to posts by and about Harry Rosen, Christopher W. Cabrera, Ramona Pierson, Navin Nagiah, and Satya Nadella.

From Marina Strauss: Harry Rosen chief getting ready for a retail rumble

“Scanning the menu at his go-to restaurant, just around the corner from his flagship store on Toronto’s Mink Mile, Larry Rosen looks disappointed.”

From Dan Nakaso: Xactly founder Christopher W. Cabrera, on keeping employees happy

“In its nine-year existence, Xactly has grown from three employees to more than 300, and their ongoing praise for the company has earned Xactly honors as a great place to work from The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and the Bay Area News Group.”

From Chris O’Brien: Declara CEO Ramona Pierson made tragedy a learning experience

“Left critically injured and blind and after being hit by a car, Ramona Pierson realized the importance of being a lifelong learner during her recovery process.”

From Adam Bryant: Navin Nagiah of DNN: Intellectual Honesty Is the Best Policy

“Authenticity is important if you want your organization to do well, says the chief of a web content software company.”

From Michael del Castillo: Satya Nadella talks about the future direction of Microsoft as a cloud and mobility company

“Microsoft’s new CEO is widely being seen as successful from his first address as its leader. And in the one area where he may have stumbled, he took the chance afterwards to wax poetic about the company’s new philosophy.”
