Inspirational Leadership- Chuck Feeney. Conor Cleary’s Irish Times article (attached) about Chuck Feeney from a few days ago inspired me to write this post. The first step in successfully building your organisation is to build yourself. As you will no doubt have...
Do I actually know what my Leadership potential is? More importantly still, how long will it take me to get there? Reaching your potential does not come automatically. It requires you to be bold, to work hard, to remain humble, to make sacrifices… Following these laws will help you to get there..
According to Peter Drucker, the essential ingredient for taking a company to greatness is having a ‘Level 5’ leader, an executive in whom extreme personal humility blends paradoxically with intense professional will. This is Self Discipline. At The Complete Leader Ireland, we believe that It’s not achieved by radical changes in your lifestyle and behaviour but by small compound changes that are approached with consistency. We’ve made it super simple…
Why is Understanding and Evaluating Others so essential for a leader? A leader needs to leverage his Team’s greatest strengths. There are many powerful tools designed to help you understand people at a much deeper level. If a leader takes the time to learn how to use them, it can give us a huge advantage in performance over our competitors in the way that we build our Teams.
People possess more capability than they are currently expressing. Ordinary people as we’ve seen from the story above achieve extraordinary things under pressure. What if crisis is not the only catalyst? According to John Whitmore’s Coaching for Performance, some of this potential can be accessed and sustained through Coaching.

Is your Team and bottom line suffering as a result of your lack of Personal Accountability?
Personal Accountability is the key ingredient. If we want to be a leader of character, we must embrace this competency. We must quit making excuses, re-establish our integrity and like Harry S. Truman place a sign on our desk that says ‘Let the “Buck Stop Here.’
We show you how to get Personally Accountable and back on track to Leadership success.
As a leader and in your companies this Growth mindset translates to being comfortable with feedback, accepting and admitting failure, collaborating rather than competing and learning from your mistakes. We see your Growth Mindset as an essential part of the Competency Continuous Learning. If you’re not quite there yet, we will show you how.
The tangible things that impact the bottom line are what we focus on. A drop in Sales, a ineffective Product, we have hard data to hand and we move into action. What do we do when it’s difficult to quantify, such as understanding how much conflict actually costs us? Let’s find out and face this corrosive and costly issue head on…
At The Complete Leader Ireland, we recommend focusing on your strengths but with the caveat that if there’s a weakness that’s impacting your Leadership now, then it needs to be dealt with. Don’t delay. Now’s the time to address this issue and get back to the business of building your business and making money!
Do you remember getting back assignments? The red remarks on school and college papers. It still makes me uncomfortable when I think of it today…and unfortunately these negative experiences can stay with us even as Leaders in our professions and mean we lack confidence when it comes to written communication.
