Servant Leadership Rant
Recently, an otherwise informative webinar by a noted speaker spectacularly fell off the rails when the host ranted on his disdain for Servant Leadership; the leadership style practiced over thousands of years, though branded differently in the last few decades.  *** At Karl Bimshas Consulting, our vision is to create environments where great leaders outnumber lousy leaders, and better leadership is the norm, not the exception.

Bounce Back, A 9-Point Plan
Welcome back to Reflections on Leadership. We took a little hiatus, which went longer than expected, but we’re back now and ready to go. Some people have found a way to thrive this year, while many others are struggling -- badly. It's easy, convenient, and justifiable to blame 2020 for your troubles. I have some suggestions on how to start to bounce back. They don't replace the need for proper physical and mental attention; instead, they serve as a blueprint if you are battling private demons, feeling lethargic, or adrift in the fog.  *** At Karl Bimshas Consulting, our vision is to create environments where great leaders outnumber lousy leaders, and better leadership is the norm, not the exception.

What Role Will You Play?
Every once in a while, a set of events line up and become a catalyst for change. Some of us are blindsided and harshly jostled into reality, and some of us willfully stay blind, refusing to believe the game board has shifted, and that there are new rules to learn. Others fear the changes will be no more than a blip before fading into memory, ignored beneath the sands of time.

Yes, I am a leader
The world is changing. That’s always true, but 2020 has amplified the sentiment. Not everyone wants the changes, nor is everyone prepared. That’s irrelevant. The change is happening. Whether positive or negative, progressive or regressive, peaceful or bloody in part depends on you. You see, the one thing change will no longer tolerate is casual indifference. For those who need to hear it, particularly the freelancers, independent business owners, the ambitious and the inspired but unsure, repeat after me, “Yes, I am a leader.” *** At Karl Bimshas Consulting, our vision is to create environments where great leaders outnumber lousy leaders, and better leadership is the norm, not the exception.

Strengthen Your Leadership so that you can lead yourself, your team, organization, or business through these unusual times. The point of looking back is to see the progress you’ve made.

The "Strengthen Your Leadership Series" is a companion to the free email course bit.ly/STRENGTHENYOURLEADERSHIP The world needs stronger leadership. Strengthen Your Leadership so that you can lead yourself, your team, organization, or business through these unusual times. You might think working with you is a dream. You’re in your head all day, so you know your intentions and beliefs better than anyone else, and I am sure they all sound reasonable. The problem is; no one else is in there with you. Even your closest allies, those who know you inside and out, are sometimes surprised by your actions. Why? Because you are not nearly as clear as you think you are. You didn’t come with a user guide, and you’re kind of hard to figure out. *** At Karl Bimshas Consulting, our vision is to create environments where great leaders outnumber lousy leaders, and better leadership is the norm, not the exception.

Leadership Scorecard and Model
The "Strengthen Your Leadership Series" is a companion to the free email course bit.ly/STRENGTHENYOURLEADERSHIP The world needs stronger leadership. Strengthen Your Leadership so that you can lead yourself, your team, organization, or business through these unusual times.

The Leadership Scorecard Karl Bimshas Consulting uses attempts to measure those variables. *** At Karl Bimshas Consulting, our vision is to create environments where great leaders outnumber lousy leaders, and better leadership is the norm, not the exception.

Leadership Competency Model
The "Strengthen Your Leadership Series" is a companion to the free email course bit.ly/STRENGTHENYOURLEADERSHIP The world needs stronger leadership. Strengthen Your Leadership so that you can lead yourself, your team, organization, or business through these unusual times. How do you measure effective leadership? “I know it when you see it,” isn’t good enough and is hardly a fair mechanism to rate others in your organization. Many teams do not have a picture of success for leadership, so how can they possibly measure if there are improvements or weaknesses being made? Many can’t -- they guess. That’s a bad strategy. *** At Karl Bimshas Consulting, our vision is to create environments where great leaders outnumber lousy leaders, and better leadership is the norm, not the exception.
