Koontz said "Most managers spend up to 10 hours a week in meetings, and 90% say more than half that time is wasted."



Qualities of a Good Leader


Warren Bennis, author of "Leaders" (1985), "On Becoming a Leader" (1989), "Managing People Is Like Herding Cats" (1997) and "Learning to Lead" (2003) books identified various effective leadership qualities in his writings.  Below are four qualities that are often repeated in some form:

  1. Integrity

  2. Trust

  3. Commitment

  4. Strategic Thinking

Communication is important to management success, yet often these tools can also be a waste of time.  Managers read lots of emails each day and prefer the emails be short and to the point.  Since many of them are also reading their emails on-the-go using phones and PDAs, they often prefer to not have to open large attachments.  Some managers prefer a short voice mail to an email, especially if an urgent reply is needed.  Verify the manager's preferences for offsite communication methods and length.  Remember to use appropriate email and phone etiquette as well.



If you are planning a lunch or short program to honor a leader, consider having the group do a "Play on Words" activity as a way to recognize the individual.  Before the event, have each person in your group write down a word or two they feel describes the leader or characteristics he displays.  Then take the words and put them together to create an acrostic using the leader's name or develop them into a short rhyme using the words and his name.  Neatly type it and then read it and present typed version to the leader at the lunch or program.  If you want to be really creative and fun, consider a rap of the rhyme.



"The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers." - Ralph Nader
