Geoff Molson: ‘You need to be humble, you need to allow other leaders to lead’

Geoff Molson, 45, is president and CEO of CH Group Limited Partnership, owner of the Montreal Canadiens, Bell Centre and Evenko, and chairman of the board of Molson Coors Brewing Co.  My father taught me to never expect anything that others wouldn’t be able to expect as well. In Montreal, with the name Molson, you could very easily put yourself in a position where you would expect things in life. My father’s advice has served me well and has led me to work harder and achieve things, but also be humble and not be different from anyone else.

Combining leadership skill and management capability

Chris Lake, head of professional development at the NHS Leadership Academy, explores why leadership and management are equally important – and why they can’t work in isolation. Having spent twenty years in the business of studying leadership and developing leaders, there’s not a single definition of leadership, or even a set of definitions, that are nearly as coherent and unified as there are for management.

Para além de seu carisma e das posições progressistas em temas delicados para a Igreja Católica, é possível que o Papa Francisco fique na história por outro legado, mais discreto e incomum: a arrumação de uma enorme e complexa casa chamada Vaticano. Segundo a imprensa, Jorge Mario Bergoglio contratou três multinacionais de consultoria para examinar com lupa as finanças da Igreja, bem como trouxe profissionais de mercado para ocupar posições gerenciais, em substituição a religiosos amadores.

Apa yang bisa dilakukan jika Anda tak lagi staf favorit bos?

Karl Moore tak bisa melupakan saat-saat ketika disingkirkan oleh bosnya ketika sang bos memasukkan orang baru.
