Much has been written about leadership: rules, pointers, styles, and biographies of inspiring leaders throughout world history. But there are certain leadership ideas that we ourselves fail to recognize and realize in the course of reading books. Here is a short list of things you thought you knew about leadership.

1. Leaders come in different flavors.

There are different types of leaders and you will probably encounter more than one type in your lifetime. Formal leaders are those we elect into positions or offices such as the senators, congressmen, and presidents of the local clubs. Informal leaders or those we look up to by virtue of their wisdom and experience such as in the case of the elders of a tribe, or our grandparents; or by virtue of their expertise and contribution on a given field such as Albert Einstein in the field of Theoretical Physics and Leonardo da Vinci in the field of the Arts. Both formal and informal leaders practice a combination of leadership styles.
· Lewin?s three basic leadership styles ? authoritative, participative, and delegative
· Likert?s four leadership styles ? exploitive authoritative, benevolent authoritative, consultative, and participative
· Goleman?s six emotional leadership styles – visionary, coaching, affiliative, democratic, pacesetting, and commanding.

2. Leadership is a process of becoming.

Although certain people seem to be born with innate leadership qualities, without the right environment and exposure, they may fail to develop their full potential. So like learning how to ride a bicycle, you can also learn how to become a leader and hone your leadership abilities. Knowledge on leadership theories and skills may be formally gained by enrolling in leadership seminars, workshops, and conferences. Daily interactions with people provide the opportunity to observe and practice leadership theories. Together, formal and informal learning will help you gain leadership attitudes, gain leadership insights, and thus furthering the cycle of learning. You do not become a leader in one day and just stop. Life-long learning is important in becoming a good leader for each day brings new experiences that put your knowledge, skills, and attitude to a test.

3. Leadership starts with you.

The best way to develop leadership qualities is to apply it to your own life. As an adage goes ?action speaks louder than words.? Leaders are always in the limelight. Keep in mind that your credibility as a leader depends much on your actions: your interaction with your family, friends, and co-workers; your way of managing your personal and organizational responsibilities; and even the way you talk with the newspaper vendor across the street. Repeated actions become habits. Habits in turn form a person?s character. Steven Covey?s book entitled 7 Habits of Highly Effective People provides good insights on how you can achieve personal leadership.

4. Leadership is shared.

Leadership is not the sole responsibility of one person, but rather a shared responsibility among members of an emerging team. A leader belongs to a group. Each member has responsibilities to fulfill. Formal leadership positions are merely added responsibilities aside from their responsibilities as members of the team. Effective leadership requires members to do their share of work. Starting as a mere group of individuals, members and leaders work towards the formation of an effective team. In this light, social interaction plays a major role in leadership. To learn how to work together requires a great deal of trust between and among leaders and members of an emerging team. Trust is built upon actions and not merely on words. When mutual respect exists, trust is fostered and confidence is built.

5. Leadership styles depend on the situation.

How come dictatorship works for Singapore but not in the United States of America? Aside from culture, beliefs, value system, and form of government, the current situation of a nation also affects the leadership styles used by its formal leaders. There is no rule that only one style can be used. Most of the time, leaders employ a combination of leadership styles depending on the situation. In emergency situations such as periods of war and calamity, decision-making is a matter of life and death. Thus, a nation?s leader cannot afford to consult with all departments to arrive at crucial decisions. The case is of course different in times of peace and order—different sectors and other branches of government can freely interact and participate in governance. Another case in point is in leading organizations. When the staffs are highly motivated and competent, a combination of high delegative and moderate participative styles of leadership is most appropriate. But if the staffs have low competence and low commitment, a combination of high coaching, high supporting, and high directing behavior from organizational leaders is required.

Now that you are reminded of these things, keep in mind that there are always ideas that we think we already know; concepts we take for granted, but are actually the most useful insights on leadership.

What in the world does ethics have to do with freebies was my first reaction when a fellow freebie hunter introduced me to the topic. As he took me through the tutorial on ethics in the world of freebies he had put together for me, I realized that well the guy did have a point. I have been conscious of my freebie fetish ever since and have strived to become a responsible freebie lover. Dramatic it may sound. For those of you still left wondering, let me explain. Freebies were unheard of before the internet became a household option. Today, the world of freebies is a thing of the past. In fact you would be surprised to know the number of people actually using freebies in their day to day lives.

How and why freebies are beneficial is a known fact. They are free products given away by companies, so make the most of them. But most of us on our crusade in laying hands fail to stop and consider for a moment that freebies exist for a reason. Why could companies possibly want to give away their products for free? There has to be a reason and there is. It is a marketing trick or venture as most companies would like to call it. Most of the times the products that are put up as freebies by companies will be of limited stock. Companies are taking this risk with the hope that their consumers will like the product and will purchase the products. But we as consumers are really not halting to blink before we click on the next freebie available. The website that offers you the freebies is also some person’s effort, at the end of the day. Having said this, let us go over a few things that we could keep in mind before we go freebie hunting again.

Firstly, make sure you need the product. Once established that the product will prove beneficial to you, think about the quantity of how much you need. Agreed that it is free, but leaving some for the rest would be the ethical thing to do. Now that we have established that, let’s take a look at restrictions imposed on freebies. Some websites impose restrictions on the age limit of people who can have access to the product. Being a responsible freebie lover, I suggest you should take these restrictions seriously and respect it. If access to that freebie would be a violation of the restrictions, abstain from sending for it.

While being the good guy here, let me impart another important value to all. Freebies are for the consumer to use. Having briefed you on the suggested moral code in the world of freebies, I have just one more thing to say. Be polite. Freebies cost us nothing. Being polite is going to cost us far lesser. I suggest the next time you leave a website after a good session of freebie hunting, leave a comment in the space provided for it, saying a small heartfelt thank you for having made you more freebie rich. If you have the patience then you could also come back after having used the product to leave a feedback note for the service providers. Companies advertise their products early on, on websites so that their product gains popularity and also to familiarize the consumers with the product such that next time the consumer wouldn’t mind as much paying for the product. They are also looking for feedbacks from customers who make use of their products so that they can correct faults, if any. So, be a responsible freebie fan and the next time you go freebie shopping, you know what to do!

Public speaking. For some, the mere believed of receiving up in front of the group of people and presenting a speech is additional terrifying than heights, snakes, or maybe death. Picture how terrified these people today would be if they had been asked to obtain in front of an audience and speak with nothing at all prepared in advance – no script, no speech, no practically nothing.

Sound insane? Nicely that is definitely what Improvisational Comedians do each day. Improvisational (or “Improv”) Comedy is a kind of theater the place a group of actors take the stage with nothing at all prepared ahead of time and use audience suggestions to create immediate comedy. If you have ever witnessed the popular television display, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” then you definitely have seen Improv Comedy.

The techniques that allow an improviser to make instant comedy can immensely enable any speaker to be a lot more comfy and effective in the platform. Right here are three motives why, if you need to become a a lot more productive speaker, you need to understand the way to be a terrific improviser:

1- Improv Comedy, at its core, is about self-expression. An Improviser has only himself on an empty stage. Every single concept he puts forth comes from within of him. The very best improvisers understand this and trust their instincts and let their thoughts flow out. Similarly, the best speakers recognize the audience is there to find out them. Rather then hide behind other people’s suggestions or type, they are 100% themselves as they speak. Several speakers make the mistake of taking acting classes to be a lot more “dramatic” as they speak. The end result is a speaker that seems fake and wooden. Audiences do not want “dramatic;” they want pure. Practicing improv comedy procedures will help you be substantially much more natural.

2- Improv Comedy is an interactive format. Improvisation may very well be the only art form exactly where the audience is present in the time of creation. Therefore, the audience’s wants, would like, and mood might be taken into account to immediate the subject material. Good improvisers feed off of the crowd’s vitality and assemble material the audience appreciates. The performer pays interest to the audience and tends to make subtle changes as she goes. Speakers would do very well to adopt this strategy. Most speakers put together their speech in a vacuum and provide it precisely as practiced. Having said that, each and every audience is unique. If a speaker pays attention towards the audience as she is speaking, she also can make subtle changes to boost her effectiveness (adjusting pacing, power, volume, etc) When you do this, not simply will your speech be much more highly effective, but you might also produce that coveted “rapport and connection” with the audience.

3- Items will go wrong. A speaker who relies solely on what they’ve memorized might be simply thrown from the distractions that invariably come about. If time gets cut, or a mobile phone rings, or a heckler demands awareness, the speaker could have no response. To an improviser, distractions are just yet another instrument to use to generate their point. A crucial improv attitude would be to “go with the flow.” As a speaker, this mindset will allow you to be unflappable from your stage. You will be considered a genuine pro, and audiences will admire your capability to manage interruptions.

These are just 3 simple ideas which might be a highly effective way in which improv comedy could make anyone a extra powerful speaker. There are lots of far more methods connected to all facets of speaking: material, delivery, storytelling, type, humor, and so forth, but these 3 will be the ideal commencing point.

When you have by no means carried out or made use of improv, then contemplate taking a class. Not just will you study handy expertise for speaking (and life), however it will likely be probably the most exciting class you’ve ever taken!

tends to make people today profitable in company, sport or any other
element of their lives?
Let me come back to that inside a moment.

Ever given that I discovered that I wasn’t invincible and that my
physique would fall apart over time, I’ve been a member of a
health club.
I’ve attended regularly over the previous fifteen many years and my
body deterioration is almost staying kept in test.

On the other hand I’ve generally noticed lots of new faces at the health club,
a few of which seem to disappear more than a short time frame.
Most gyms and health clubs have a high turnover of members
or “churn” since the marketing and advertising individuals like to phone it.
A single club I know of loses close to fifty members a month and
needs to get the job done hard to sign up that amount just for the
business to stand still.

It’s not that these gyms supply a poor service, on the
contrary – it is because the members – “give up.”

New members join to lose weight or to acquire match. They then
torture themselves on the rowing machines and each of the other
instruments of agony. If, immediately after some weeks of sweat and
pain, they don’t see any visible result – they quit.

You are in all probability away ahead of me on this; because the essential
secret of good results that I mentioned earlier is this – Never
EVER Give up.
This is what separates the winners from the losers in
organization, in sport and in life – that is what results is all

If you have a mountain to climb both literally or
figuratively and you also reach an obstacle – do not give up.
Obtain an additional way round – even go back a quick distance and
come with the scenario from yet another course.

Whatever it is you happen to be attempting to realize, what ever good results
you desire – never ever give up! Make errors – fall down – get up
- fall down – but get up and try out again.

So there you may have it – If you would like results don’t forget what
Winston Churchill the moment mentioned – “Never – Never – By no means give

What is health? 
The definition of health is not just absence of disease and suffering, but perfect physical, mental and social well-being. We all have physical, mental and social conditions that we are more or less happy with. Many believe that this definition of health is unattainable since thousands are dying of malaria, AIDS, and hunger every day. 

Good health means to experience the peace of mind, meaning and value in life and cope with the challenges we face. The values of the good life is far more difficult to measure accurately the numbers. There is no correlation between the extent of disease and extent of the good life. It turns out that people who experience a high quality of life, have stronger immune system, are sick less often and have shorter illness by disease than people who do not experience life as good and meaningful. 

Health model tells where we must invest if we are to work to improve health in the population. For those who are often sick, it is important to prevent illness and injury and to reduce the risk of disease. The development of tourist trails for exercise and campaigns against smoking and alcohol may be two measures. For people who are so often ill, it is important to focus on strengthening those aspects of the individual’s life situation and the society that makes our life worth living, prosperity and security in everyday life, good, social networks, good local environment and experience of community and belonging. 

When we think of health, emphasis is placed on the person unable to perform the tasks in the community that it has received, and that humans thrive in the tasks it has been, and are able to adapt and enjoy their space and are able to adapt to the norms and rules. This has an impact on common sense, and has an intrinsic value in itself.

A traditional understanding that includes both positive and negative factors, see good health as a state of homeostasis, which is equilibrium and harmony between the different parts of the human body and between humans and the environment. In the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates argued that good health was based on a balance between building blocks in the body, which he believed to be four different body bags. Later on health been understood as being functional. A healthy person is able to solve the many tasks and challenges a person faces in their normal environment. 

An understanding of health as equilibrium seems reasonable. Nevertheless, the incomplete. First, sick people may also experience balance. The healthy man in the modern world is dynamic. Health is linked to development. It is also good health to be in growth and development at all levels, physical, mentally and socially. A healthy person has the ability to combine caring for your health in the medical sense to seek new experiences, learn new skills, meet new people, move into new environments, and expand their horizons. Temporary pain and suffering may be part of a healthy life if it gives different values in the longer term. 

Being able to participate in a sport is a right every human being has. It is also of importance for the development of children and young people, because sports characterize and build children’s mental and physical health. They also help children to make valuable social ties to the world around us. Sport gives children more opportunities to express themselves, whether through play. This plays an important role for children who live in countries that are characterized by poverty and war. Sport is also an option to prevent drug abuse and youth crime, by providing children and young people to continue with an activity in their spare time. 

It is also proven that the sport has a correlation with academic achievement. If you are physically active have a greater capacity and ability to learn and retain information, this can at best lead to better grades. 

Sport may even be helping to promote equality between women and men, girls and boys. This is because the girls in many countries have less opportunities to make friends and provide a social circle because they must care for and organize the home. Sport can also help to build bridges between countries and societies that are full of problems. 

Physical activity has an impact on health, it improves quality of life. It seems healthy, mentally and physically, and also helps with personal challenges, shared experiences and social meeting places in safe and good growing environment. 

Provides sporting good health? 
Many will answer yes. Physical Activity and Sport has been associated with good health for many centuries. The body is designed for versatile use of the muscles. There is a clear connection between being physical inactivity and disease and death. Inactive is particularly prone to cardiovascular disease, for diabetes, some cancers, osteoporosis, and depression. 

If we stop with the training to clear the positive effects on your health pretty quickly. Some positive effects are: 
- Increased work capacity 
- Greater profits and more job satisfaction 
- Strengthened immune system 
- Stronger bone, cartilage, tendons and strips 
- Natural drainage of stress reactions 

This was just a few examples. 
At the same time limits on how much exercise and activity your body can withstand. The effect of physical activity on health depends on how often and how hard we train. The effect levels off after that we increase the training volume. The effect of very large amounts of exercise can actually be in negative health sense. Everyone has heard of overload. We subjected us to great physical strain without receiving enuf rest and recovery. The body will never have time to recover. But everyone should carry a form of activity. Most people should exercise a half hour 3 times a week, with moderate intensity.

Health is such a broad concept, it has an impact on what we do in the course of a week, appearance, training, and job. Few of us are directly dependent on being in good shape to perform our work. But the healthy, strong, young body has a different meaning. It has become a social symbol that we are successful and have control over ourselves and our lives. When we stand up as veltrimmede and slender bodies, we send out signals to the surroundings. We have the will, ability and resources to develop ourselves. A body that looks healthy and fresh, is actually become a status symbol. 

This leads to a few consequences. It has been proven through studies that people with a look that is close to body ideals, the easier work, better work, and milder punishment in the criminal justice system, and they are considered more pleasant, more intelligent and more social than people without the same degree satisfies the body ideals. Many will do anything to get closer and to be compared with body ideals, and this is not always a positive effect. Radical demands to be thin for eating disorders. 

A desire for ever larger muscles can lead to drug abuse. Top sports, but also sport, is criticized for promoting dangerous body ideals. But while the sport may serve to soften one-sided ideals. Most sports do not focus on how your body looks, but on how it works. The negative effects have a major impact on the health of an athlete, or just doing regular excercise. But they have a positive impact as well. By training only half an hour 3 days a week, with moderate intensity, reduces Mon sick leave at work, and Perceiving, therefore more money. Mon also reduces the risk of high blood pressure, and the state reduces the amount of drugs, and can therefore spend the money on other things, such as better sports facilities. Sport is also a social. More join the sports clubs because they want to meet new people and make new friends, and this has a positive effect on health. Inactivity can cause obesity. We have a less physically active lifestyles. Both work and school days containing less activity than before, and it has become common to use means of transport to and from work, leisure activities and school that does not involve physical activity. Sitting for leisure activities have become stronger competitors to the physical activities. Increased physical activity in the form of exercise or training can only compensate for the reduced daily activity. The sum is that physical activity declines, with the health challenges this entails. 
Increasing obesity in the population is a big challenge so. “In the last 15 years, men on average have gone up approx. 5 kg and females 5.8 kg in weight. 

If each of us improve the health, the community as a whole more healthy. It means we can work and produce more, and have fewer sick days. How can sports, fitness and exercise provide significant socio-economic gains. 

In 1999, it formed a new state agency under the Health and Social Affairs to promote physical activity in the population. The former state ernæringsråd was to the State Council for Nutrition was the government’s advice for nutrition and physical activity. The new Council operates significant activity in the form of to initiate research and carry extensive consulting work when it comes to nutrition, physical activity and health in the population and the Council distinguishes himself clearly in the public debate. 

Also sports organizations sports health effects as one of its strongest arguments to gain support from the public. In fact, the health of one of the most important values in the NOC’s mission statement “All athletic activity should be based on fundamental values such as sporting joy, community, health and honesty.” 

It is true that the moderate sports activity can provide health gain and hence socio-economic gain. But sport also requires resources. It costs lots of money. It allocated a lot of money from the profits from gaming funds for construction of sports facilities. Many just doing regular excercise and trimmers are more or less injuries, which uses the coating on hospital resources and leads to the absence of work. Several researchers have calculated how much the sports injuries costs, and they have reached 1.5 billion a year. Nor do any kind of sport is as healthy. Sports injuries account for about 17% of all injuries in Norway. Eating disorders constitute a part of the 17%. Eating disorders are found among women and men. 

Sports and mental health 
WHO parts into their health definition in two parts: what we call physical health and mental health. We will focus on the mental health and explain how it affects the sport. 

A very large portion, which includes approximately 1 / 3 of Norway’s population are not involved with any kind of form of regular exercise or organized training. They are regarded as inactive, and that one third of the population are also those who are suffering with the most and great mental distress. Studies have also shown that if an inactive person select and start training, it is not certain that the person gets rid of their ailments or disorders. This may be the research by recruiting inactive people with mental health and mental disorders, to engage with training and exercise. 

The reason that the inactivation is considered to have the most problems, is that those already involved in regular exercise and training is much less likely to develop mental disorders in the first place. Nevertheless, research for sports and mental health found that training and active exercise can reduce scrolling. stress, depression, anxiety, headache, fatigue and muscle pain. Exercise can also have an opposite effect. If there are high demands for performance that is seen as a threat to the example. Running on a team, this may contribute to increased stress and poor mental health. It is important that you feel in a safe in the environment Mon driver activity and that it is motivating to those who participate, not ends. 

Among children and youth sports, this is a problem that’s growing larger and larger, but also among adults, with many stops or falls off. Among the previously inactive adults who start exercising, stop on average after 6 months. It is therefore important to find the right balance between pleasure, mastery and challenge. Proper sports and physical activity also provides psychological well-being and profit, and helps to strengthen self-esteem especially to children and adolescents, and adults. 

Mental health is the largest trade association for users, relatives and other interested mental health services in Norway. 

Sports and quality of life 
As individuals, we have self-responsibility for our own health and quality of life. Humans have always been looking for to find the key to the good life. Sport and physical activity can be called a source of increased and better quality of life. 

The term quality of life is not a self-written term fixed definition, for there is great freedom in what one understands this concept. Nevertheless, the World Health Organization (WHO) defined quality of life as such; personal perceptions of their own position in life, in light of current cultural and value systems and in relation to their own objectives, expectations, standards and what they are concerned. To understand this more easily we can explain what individuals positive, negative, cognitive and emotional experiences. Even if the person has good health, big house and a high income, this does not mean necessarily that the person is happy. There are also people who are happy without all this. Happiness is an important factor for good quality of life! 

By conducting the training that provide positive experience and intrinsic value, we can thus enhance our self-picture. Joy, community, coping and progress in the training context also provides a positive surprise of himself, by achieving goals they have set themselves. 

Quality of life is a pretty new concept, even though the people have always asked the question around “the good life”. Quality of life is very extensive and can tell how people experience different aspects of the experience in his life. If you are active, and has an affinity with people, have a sense of self and are excited and happy.

Web sites use freebies to attract much more visitors and create a lot more sales. Some are desperate sales pitches while other people are genuinely valuable, such as freeware versions of verified computer software. However, merely having any giveaway for visitors to download does not guarantee a productive website. There is a technique to powerful advertising and marketing with the use of freebies.


If your freebie is common and can effortlessly be downloaded anyplace (a pdf reader, an audio converter), it could not support your new or struggling internet site acquire prominence, especially against giant sites which have been giving away these sorts of points effectively for years. Visitors will follow familiar paths (links) toward these verified sites, even for simple cost-free downloads. Giving away a thing unique creates a likelihood for paths to lead to your personal, soon to be familiar website.


You can get away with a frequent item as extended as it offers better utility than its fellow freebies of the identical type. For instance, a freeware word processor will constantly get the consideration of visitors who are unwilling to spend for the commercial ones. If your unpretentious word processor does a great deal a lot more than the pre-set up text editor in everybody’s operating system, it will be tremendously appreciated by several.

It may take a bit a lot more work to scrounge the net for such a freebie that you can give to your web site visitors but it will spend off when you start off selling goods since by then you would have currently gained their trust with useful freebies.
