    Hi Tim,
    Thanks for your insightful email covering the great work that you and your team are doing.
    An interesting article on “The Seven Habits…” but I would say even the more “successful” leaders would have displayed some (if not all) of these habits at some point?
    ….and how is success measured? Is it always shareholder wealth?

    Kind regards,

    Garth

    Habit # 1: They see themselves and their companies as dominating their environment
    Habit #2: They identify so completely with the company that there is no clear boundary between their personal interests and their corporation’s interests
    Habit #3: They think they have all the answers
    Habit #4: They ruthlessly eliminate anyone who isn’t completely behind them
    Habit #5: They are consummate spokespersons, obsessed with the company image
    Habit #6: They underestimate obstacles
    Habit #7: They stubbornly rely on what worked for them in the past

      Hi Garth
      I agree with your comments about “The Seven Habits….” and would add that in my experience the most successful leaders I know do display all of the “10 Habits of Successful Leaders” but they also display some of the “seven habits” from time to time. Which just goes to demonstrate that leadership is fluid and not an exact science.
      cheers
