Tosser - Catcher All delegates to go around the table and introduce themselves – Name and Title. Then stand up. Next Begin tossing one ball amongst the circle. The exchange from tosser to catcher should be as follows. — Tosser- “Here you go…… (Name of catcher).” — Catcher- “Thank you…… (Name of tosser).“ — “Here you go….(next catcher).” As individuals begin to become familiar with one another’s names speed up the process.

What are the characteristics of good leadership? The DTI competitiveness survey identified several common traits of leaders in top companies. These included: — Enthusiasm — Champion of change — Communication — Leader by example — Openness — Risk tolerant — Visionary — Motivator — Failure tolerant — Good delegator Particularly in small companies, it can be difficult to differentiate between management and leadership because you may be involved in all aspects of the business. It may be difficult to 'let go' once a company grows and you start to rely on people who can do some parts of the job better than yourself. In 'How to be a better leader', it is observed that: 'you manage tasks, and lead people.'
Effective Leaders … Have a “Vision” Act as strong role models Walk the talk Win the hearts and minds Bring the best out of people Are the change agent Have a steady hand and a cool head
What traits do your selected leaders have in common? 3 most common Jean Luc Picard Ronald Reagan Anita Roddick Sitting Bull Jack Welch Martin Luther King Abraham Lincoln
Effective Leaders … Have willing followers!!!! And it’s the engagement of those followers that is important
Situational Leadership You can’t always be the leader Teams select own leaders? Adopt an appropriate style “The Admirable Crichton” Knowledge, Skills and Attitude
Failure! The one experience you must have! Problems shape leaders like weather shapes mountains Early age experience a common theme
Nine Natural Laws of Leadership 1. A leader has willing followers – allies 2. Leadership is a field of interaction 3. Leadership occurs as an event 4. Leaders use influence beyond formal authority 5. Leaders operate outside the boundaries of the organisationally defined procedure 6. Leadership involves risk and uncertainty 7. Not everyone will follow a leader’s initiative 8. Consciousness – information processing capacity – creates leadership 9. Leadership is a self-referral process. Leaders and followers process information from their own subjective, internal frame of reference

There is nothing more difficult to execute, nor more dubious of success, nor more dangerous to administer than to introduce a new system of things: For he who introduces it has all those who profit from the old system as his enemies and, He has only lukewarm allies in all those who might profit from the new system. Machiavelli

"We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralisation“ Charlton Ogburn, J r
It's not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred with the sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause and who, at best knows the triumph of high achievement and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat Theodore Roosevelt, 23 April 1923
