If you are anything like me, you’re already thinking about the year ahead and how to improve the effectiveness of your leadership. But there are factors we might frequently overlook but are largely indispensable like making sure to take the necessary steps to stay balanced and inspired.
As a leader, staying balanced and inspired directly affects the impact of your leadership and ability to influence change and progress towards desired goals. I have witnessed this countless times. To be an effective leader, you have to stay balanced and inspired but how?
Spring has finally rolled over to Summer and the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil is that time again where all come together to celebrate the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world, well ahead of the Olympics. The fact that sport has the power to bring almost the entire world together was shown in 2006 when more than 30 billion viewers in 214 countries watched the World Cup on television while more than 3 Mio attended inside the stadiums.
Just take a few seconds to imagine for each fan in the stadium about 10`000 people in front of a screen, where many of them may want to express their emotions, support their team or exchange opinions on goals, referee decisions and what happens in the match over channels like social media and participating has become easier than ever with this guide.
