Continuing in thought about goals or resolutions for next year here is a blog with loads of tips on how to wake up early It is certainly something that is going to be on my goals – I want to get to bed earlier and at a more consistent time, and at the same time have a pattern for getting up in the morning. I want to see if I can make it up for the occasional sunrise in 2008.

  1. Have been musing this and decided it is impossible to answer as no one quality will do it. I would say humility is an absolute key but that needs be in the context of other skills, self awareness and abilities. I’d also say self awareness and the ability to listen, as well as being able to live and communicate vision.

    eeek, I’m on the verge of waffling. These are the key attributes that Alistair Campbell recently listed. There is some wisdom therein:

    Clarity of objective and strategy. Only then go tactical.

    The best team leaders are the best team players



    Staying calm in a crisis. Listen but lead, not listen and lead

    Patience. Take your time if you have to.

    Set the media agenda. Don’t let them set it for you.

    Get your head above the parapet when the s***t’s flying

    Encourage enterprise and ideas at all levels of your organisation in a non-blame culture.
