    #7 Thanks for sharing your link which,unfortunately, I was not able to open with Adobe.Warren Buffet and many other successful business leaders have achieved unprecedented success not because they were able to reach 100 % practice which could be developed by ordinary managers or because of their core skills or experience or qualification,but because they had another type of creative and innovative practice,and passion to take whatever opportunity they had and make it perfect.They were able to develop an open mind and spirit of inquiry to deal with the complexity and uncertainty of many chaotic business situations.Also,as many early immigrants to the US he favored being in uncertain situation rather than resorting to the status quo.Although each one of these successful leaders was driven by different motives and a different mix of gain and pride to keep going ,and sometime of fear of being regressed to mediocrity or spectacular failure, all were able to go against the logic of many others.Their unprecedented success was not at the concrete level but took place in the framework of their high expectation.The instinct of creative leaders or the strategy of early immigrants was often based on; a single idea that solve more than one problem and create more than one opportunity.They always had an integrated motive as marketers and entrepreneurs.

    #4 Dear Mohammed, what you have introduced in your commentary is specialization and professionalism. Leaders who can think at great levels of abstraction can deal with higher complexities of practice. Leaders who best think at the concrete level can deal with end-to-end managerial practice all the way down to operating a lemonade stand. Their is much mess in not noticing this

    Having said that, Warren Buffett began his business practice as a newspaper boy, at each level of leadership practice, Buffett accumulated greater levels of leadership ability. Consequently Buffetts letters to his partners and then to his shareholders mirrors the growth of Berkshire Hathaway. How Warren Buffett developed is 100% in his practice and these can be seen in both his shareholder letters http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/letters/letters.html and his original letters to his partners - through constancy of purpose he got really good at what he did. The question is not in learning to read Buffett's letters, it is how best would we write them if we were expressing our leadership year-in-year-out in the form of a letter.

    It is not only leadership that is a practice, but so is management, so is medicine, so is public speaking. Thinking is a practice.
    CityVP Manjit
    04/12/2016 #6 CityVP Manjit
    #2 The theoretical when it comes to the practitioner is very important as leaders transition to greater challenges. When I look at the behemoths like LinkedIn and Facebook, I find entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who also are hard-core thinkers. Peter Thiel who was one of the geniuses behind both Facebook and Paypal thinks at an extremely high level of capability including what informs him at the philosophical level. http://www.businessinsider.com/peter-thiel-on-rene-girards-influence-2014-11

    Then there are actual philosopher kings that turn into entrepreneurs like Yvon Chouinard http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/09/19/patagonias-philosopher-king and don't forget Reid Hoffman at LinkedIn.

    Then there is leadership at brass tacks level - a leader who is running several stores at a local level. These leaders don't need to think at global levels, indeed they will be extremely bored to run a business at the local level. The same as it would if I asked Yvon Chouinard and Peter Thiel to partner with me, because they are not interested in the day-to-day leadership challenges, they are already thinking many years out and at levels of investment that are challenging to comprehend.

    The pond metaphor then is very apt. The big fish in a small pond is a leader, and the small fish in the big pond is a leader, but the big fish in the big pond is what most leadership theory aims to address - and that is why understanding that leadership is a practice is fundamental starting point, you and me recognize that, but we don't think of leadership that way, instead leadership books deliver a mythological leadership. For sure our society does require mythology to keep it running, but it also needs practitioners who can operate the larger visions of society, and it is those leaders that I am definitely interested in.
    CityVP Manjit
    04/12/2016 #5 CityVP Manjit
    #3 Leadership is exponential with complexity. At the most basic level leadership can be practiced at the most mundane level, without great levels of complexity and when we level set to an organization at an early stage of development or that has reached a low ceiling at which it operates, then that is a different form of leadership than running a huge global organization. There are also some founders who like starting companies but don't want the leadership challenges of scaling a business.

    There are problems for a leadership mindset that entertains global level ambitions when the organization itself is not going to grow beyond the local level where it was founded, because then there is a misalignment between the needs of that organization and the capability of the leader - for then the leader with a big vision operating in limited settings will create unnecessary complexity to be designed into a business and then the competitor who operates with a simpler framework will win the day in the marketplace and the leadership of that competitor do not necessarily need to be the smartest people in the room.

    At the other end of the scale, in the world of mergers and acquisitions, getting the smartest minds into leadership practice is more important because the complexities are far richer. There is one thing leading an organization with a large percentage of grassroots level employees and leading a multi-billion enterprise that is about to see a transfer in ownership.

    In this case failure in addressing leadership talent can lead to an increase in the likelihood of merger and acquisition failure, which according to Forbes can be high as 83%. It really comes down to level-setting what kind of leadership we are preparing ourselves for and not the one size of leadership fits all that comes across with cookie-cutter solutions.

    04/12/2016 #4 Mohammed Sultan
    Dear@City VP Manjit .It's a great well written post ,but to treat leaders as practitioners will block the organization alignment with its customers at a strategic level.The need may then arise for a business leader for every strategy.This worked well in the product era when you needed product experts or guardians of the innovation process.But in the current positioning era businesses may adopt radical changes that requires a dislocation of everything and every strategy.Here we may not be in a need for a leader who is a 100 % practitioner or a leader for an outdated strategy.In today's business world where mergers and acquisitions is taking place, changing the face and heart of every organization,we are in a need for leaders who are not only guardians of the org corporate vision but also to leaders who can work as intergrators .The leadership of 100% practice is better pushed down to functional managers.To go even further ,the function of today's business leaders will stretch beyond the leadership traditional tasks of visioning ,aligning and motivating to include establishing of company's identity and purpose. When we call for leadership 100 % practice in our organisations who ,then ,will run the lemonade stands!

    Outstanding read, @CityVP Manjit - I am especially fond of this statement ""Best Practices" is not practice - that is simply imitation of leadership practices of the fake it till you make it kind. This brings me back to what the LEAD is in leadership. Best practice is not leadership, it is followership. The leader is the person/group whose practice was emulated and vaunted as a best practice."

    These concepts require a deep understanding of the self-awareness continuum. I found with many variations of Jung's work it is difficult to teach as folks tend not to want to become self-aware of their style, type or MB designation. I agree that this is one of the top 5 needed understandings of leadership.

    Given this phenomena, i believe the golden rule is more applicable. Treating others the way they wish to be treated is usually not in the best interest of the goals of leadership or ultimately for the individual seeking to advance in their own style of leadership. A leader who is creating space for another leader in their growth has the responsibility to two goals, the new leader and the goals. I believe the golden rule recognizes this separation of need vs growth.

In all seriousness [did I begin with a proper sentence structure] but some people think the term means everything they do, they do with perfection. Perfectionism is taxing on the mind and body. Perfectionists can also be the biggest procrastinators because they fear failure and they put off things that take effort. They put them off knowing they will take forever perfecting what they view as 'not good enough.'

    In true perfectionist hindsight read 'you and me' below for 'you and I'. 😟

    No matter how hard we may strive, Emily, nobody's perfect, except of course you and I. That's why pencils have rubbers and texting software has 'autocorrect', which can also be your worst 'enema'. 😂 This last dad joke is from my old mate, @Kevin Pashuk View more

    I prefer to look at perfection as a health rather than look at perfectionism as a disease. If love makes me engage something perfect then that emanates from my flow, but if fear makes me engage perfectionism - then I should reflect whether what I perfect emanates from love or whether it emanates from fear. The pathology of perfectionism is of less interest to me than the natural healthy flow of being fully immersed in something that has depth of meaning and purpose to us. Love has another side to perfection, in love there is also great appreciation for the imperfect.

    I have just three words for perfectionists: Get a life. If that doesn't work, I sit them down and smoke a bowl. :)

    #9 Ah yes, I can understand the challenge with dyslexia. I empathize, that must be tough especially with perfectionist tendencies! I'm diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and it doesn't mix well with perfectionism either. Thank you for sharing that personal piece of information. I stand up to my reciprocity rule = You shared something with me, and so I share back. :-)

    Perfectionism like any designation of character can be to extremes. I have several perfectionists within our midst at work and socially. I find it to be a strength. I have the energy and courage to get to 80%, the perfectionists have the courage and strength to get the last 20%. So like anything in over indulgence perfection could be a draw back but with good skills of when to apply themselves, they are all that you said, @Emily Forget (Newbee!)

    This is why is prefer to solve my problems with a team. My thinking is almost always the root of every problem, yet with my team or my mentor, I can see outside the box, "ME", and find an answer.
