Fuel 2007 | Dr. Samuel Chand (part 2)

Continuing my notes from Fuel 2007 with Dr. Samuel Chand:

It’s important that we understand that we need both Leaders and Managers.

Here’s the characteristics of Leaders:

  • Conceptualize outcome by working from the future back to the present
  • Embrace a Macro perspective
  • Favor innovative thinking
  • Revolutionary flair
  • Emphasis on the what and the why
  • Inspiring and motivating
  • Excited by change
  • Move quickly
  • Identify opportunities
  • Take risks
  • Pursue acquisition of resources
  • People centered
  • People’s approval is a want (not necessarily a need)

Check this quote out: “Those who know how will always work for those who know why”. Think about it.
