Leadership Tips: Vol. 611

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership

Stay hungry. Don’t assume the United States has a lock on innovation. Many top U.S. inventors—Edison, Ford, Farnsworth—refined ideas from abroad. So while it’s true that some cultures are more conforming and less open to trial-and-error than ours, it’s also true there’s no guarantee of leadership.

— Adapted from “The myth of the innovation nation,” David Rothkopf, Foreign Policy.

Exit right. Olive Stephens, who declined to run for mayor of Shady Shores, Texas, for a 20th term, would have liked to stick it out a little longer, but at age 94 she finds it a little hard to walk. The local paper ran a photo of her attacking a pothole with a hoe, wishing that sight could inspire ­mayors everywhere.

— Adapted from “Olive Stephens calls it a day,” Denton Record Chronicle.

Ask the right questions when you’re waiting. An unhelpful question might be, “Why is this taking so long?” A better question is, “What can I learn while I am waiting?”
