Thoughts From Sandra

The mission of the Center of Light and Love is to help people strengthen their relationship with God through healing of the body, mind, and spirit.

Grounded in the Spirit, the Center's programs are designed to minister to the total self, thereby facilitating physical and emotional renewal, and enhancing one's capacity to cope with the challenges of life. The Center enables leaders to address the inner work necessary to be effective.

For more information, visit The Center of Light and Love web site.

For instance, are the behaviors of effective leaders always the same, or do conditions and circumstances play a part? How can managers determine when to exhibit what type of behavior?

Towers Perrin-ISR?s Framework of Effective Leadership addresses these, and other crucial questions.

First steps include setting priorities for action; developing action plans for each priority; agreeing on timelines, metrics, and accountability, and creating an on-going monitoring plan. Then, in order to accomplish your increased leadership capabilities, your organization must:

1. Re-evaluate leadership effectiveness at all levels;

2. Embed effective leadership processes going forward;

3. Establish mechanism for measuring on-going progress; and

4. Develop roadmap for sustainable change.

Many people believe that leadership is simply being the first, biggest, or most powerful. Leadership in organizations has a different and more meaningful definition. A leader is someone who sets direction in an effort and influences people to follow that direction. How they do that depends on a variety of factors that are considered in this gigantic online library.
