Unique abilities

Recently a colleague sent me an article from Forbes – 3 Things Business Can Learn From Government – by Karl Moore.

What are they?

  1. Ability to deal with complexity
  2. Ability to reconcile the conflicting needs and wants of multiple stakeholders
  3. Nature of leadership in government

“A key leadership skill that is constantly called upon is that of persuading others, not through your authority or hierarchical position but by getting them on board with your ideas and showing how your approach fits with their individual and departmental agendas.”

There is a lot to learn across sectors whether the private, co-operative, public, and not-for-profit sectors.
