    The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis #14

    in Business


    The disease of closed circles, where belonging to a clique becomes more powerful than our shared identity. This disease too always begins with good intentions, but with the passing of time it enslaves its members and becomes a cancer which threatens the harmony of the organization and causes immense evil, especially to those we treat as outsiders. “Friendly fire” from our fellow soldiers, is the most insidious danger. It is the evil which strikes from within. As it says in the bible, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste.”

    The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis #15

    in Business


    Lastly: the disease of extravagance and self-exhibition. This happens when a leader turns his or her service into power, and uses that power for material gain, or to acquire even greater power. This is the disease of persons who insatiably try to accumulate power and to this end are ready to slander, defame and discredit others; who put themselves on display to show that they are more capable than others. This disease does great harm because it leads people to justify the use of any means whatsoever to attain their goal, often in the name of justice and transparency! Here I remember a leader who used to call journalists to tell and invent private and confidential matters involving his colleagues. The only thing he was concerned about was being able to see himself on the front page, since this made him feel powerful and glamorous, while causing great harm to others and to the organization.

    in Business

     



    There is also a sort of “leadership Alzheimer’s disease.” It consists in losing the memory of those who nurtured, mentored and supported us in our own journeys. We see this in those who have lost the memory of their encounters with the great leaders who inspired them; in those who are completely caught up in the present moment, in their passions, whims and obsessions; in those who build walls and routines around themselves, and thus become more and more the slaves of idols carved by their own hands.

    The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis #4

    in Business


    The disease of excessive planning and of functionalism. When a leader plans everything down to the last detail and believes that with perfect planning things will fall into place, he or she becomes an accountant or an office manager. Things need to be prepared well, but without ever falling into the temptation of trying to eliminate spontaneity and serendipity, which is always more flexible than any human planning. We contract this disease because it is easy and comfortable to settle in our own sedentary and unchanging ways. Join Daniel and Johnnie as they dive into what most of us would consider micro-managing and how this disease can really cost you!

    The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis #5

    in Business


    The disease of poor coordination. Once leaders lose a sense of community among themselves, the body loses its harmonious functioning and its equilibrium; it then becomes an orchestra that produces noise: its members do not work together and lose the spirit of camaraderie and teamwork. When the foot says to the arm: ‘I don’t need you,’ or the hand says to the head, ‘I’m in charge,’ they create discomfort and parochialism.

  • Wednesday Wisdom Radio Show~ The Spirituality of Business

    in Women

    The more I am learning about running my own business, the more I realize it's not just the strategies that make or break my successes.  Our inner being, our patterns and practices based on years of conditioning, tend to run us, making decisions, keeping up our habits and routines and making it difficult for us to take action that is outside of our comfort zone.  Spiritual practice and intense inner work - including understanding where our stress patterns drive us as well as avoidance tactics our Shadow creates for us - is just as important as getting good business strategy, financial advice and hiring the right person to be on our team. 


    Let's dive in and look at some of the inner workings of what makes us successful and where we get in our own way!

    The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis #12

    in Business

     



    The disease of a downcast face. You see this disease in those glum and sour persons who think that to be serious you have to put on a face of melancholy and severity, and treat others—especially those we consider our inferiors—with rigor, brusqueness and arrogance. In fact, a show of severity and sterile pessimism are frequently symptoms of fear and insecurity. A leader must make an effort to be courteous, serene, enthusiastic and joyful, a person who transmits joy everywhere he goes. A happy heart radiates an infectious joy: it is immediately evident! So a leader should never lose that joyful, humorous and even self-deprecating spirit which makes people amiable even in difficult situations. How beneficial is a good dose of humor! …

    What is Unfair Business Competition?

    in Legal

    The Unfair Competition Law, codified as Bus. & Prof. Code Section 17200, provides for injunctive and other relief for any business practice that is “unfair,” “unlawful” or “fraudulent.” This would necessarily include certain types of false advertising.
