NextGen Know-How: Leadership is a behavior

first_img 22SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » A few weeks ago, I attended an event for professional speakers where a well-known presenter shared ways to create connection with your audience. During his speech, he mentioned the town in upstate New York where he grew up. He grew up only 15 minutes from my hometown, so I was excited to talk with him afterwards. He certainly created a connection with me in that moment. We had something in common.After the session concluded, I walked up to him to say how great his speech was and started to tell him where I was from, when…he totally blew me off. He was so busy getting his marketing materials together that he didn’t even make eye contact with me. I was disappointed. Not because I had a need to connect with him on a personal level, but because he wasn’t practicing what he had just taught in his speech. The content of his speech was excellent, but the feeling I got from him afterward totally turned me off.In the speaking industry, there’s an unwritten rule that your speech is not really over when you leave the stage. You may have finished the content, but it’s important to stay connected to your audience until you leave the building. Until then, you are still “on” and your audience is still judging you based on your interactions.The same is true for leadership. As a leader, people observe your actions, even in the small moments that may not seem to matter. Leadership is a behavior, not a role. Everything you do has impact. Even when you are working late and only one person is in the office with you, or when you’re at the company barbecue, or when you’re at a conference out of town, you have an impact.last_img read more

Ouseley: We don’t deserve Rio jibe

first_img Ouseley also expanded on his reasons for resigning from the FA Council, revealing it came after then FA chairman David Bernstein refused to issue an apology on behalf of the governing body for the way it had handled the Terry and Suarez cases, and the delays involved. He said: “I wanted the chairman to issue a full apology. They mishandled those cases and caused so much grief and because he refused to do, I relinquished my place on the FA Council. “The Ferdinand family were severely abused, I was severely abused – I got hundreds of abusive emails – and they deserved a full apology. “Liverpool could have been sanctioned three times over the Suarez incident, Kenny Dalglish’s [the then manager] behaviour was appalling. “Andres Villas-Boas was manager of Chelsea and kept on saying Terry would always be their captain whatever the outcome. “The FA only did something about him being England captain when they were about to go off to Euro 2012 and the whole thing was incendiary and very toxic. They hid behind the police inquiry but it is the FA that regulates football and the Ferdinand family were given so much grief. “We have moved on but you have to purge yourself of these errors. “I think a lot more people have confidence now, at least people know the FA will investigate everything now.” Press Association In his book, Ferdinand – now at QPR – writes he initially refused to wear a Kick It Out T-shirt because “The group had refused to come to the courtroom with us, so I wasn’t willing to go through the charade of wearing their shirt. My parents probably wouldn’t have spoken to me if I had.” Ouseley told the Guardian: “Unfortunately we are the punchbag for some people and it’s easy to have a punchbag like us.” He added later to Press Association Sport: “We don’t like being Rio Ferdinand’s punchbag. It was very unfair. I have no hang-ups about being criticised but it has to be based on fair and accurate information. “I just want to put the record straight. We had someone there with the family in court every day – Anton Ferdinand’s club [QPR] wasn’t there, his union wasn’t there every day, but we were. Was Rio himself even there? “We gave as much support as we could give, we could not do any more, we had no power to do so. We spoke to the club and the police and had meetings. If the clubs had acted properly in the Terry case and the Suarez case we would not have had all this grief.” Kick It Out had had a number of meetings with the Ferdinand family before the trial, but decided it could not agree to their request for their staff to wear campaigning T-shirts in court. Ouseley said he had been happy for Rio Ferdinand and Jason Roberts to later boycott the Kick It Out T-shirts because it was only when people “put their heads above the parapet” that changes were made. He added: “I want more to speak out and challenge inequality. You only see action when people speak out – it was only when Kevin Prince Boateng walked off the pitch in Italy that FIFA sat up and took notice.” In serialisations of his book #2sides, which is published on Thursday, the former England and Manchester United defender claims Kick It Out had refused to go into court with the family during the John Terry racism trial involving his brother Anton Ferdinand. Terry was acquitted in court but later banned for four matches by the Football Association for racially abusing the younger Ferdinand. Kick It Out chairman Herman Ouseley told the Guardian that Ferdinand’s criticism was unfair. He repeated the comments in a follow-up interview with Press Association Sport and added that he held the Football Association accountable for the abuse the family and he himself received over the Terry and Luis Suarez racism cases. The head of football’s anti-discrimination body Kick It Out has responded to attacks by Rio Ferdinand in his autobiography by saying it deserves better than to be his “punchbag”. last_img read more

‘Casillas is the pride of Real Madrid’ – Del Bosque

first_imgIker Casillas is the “pride of Real Madrid”, according to Spain boss and former Blancos coach Vicente del Bosque.The 143-cap international was controversially left out of Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up for the trip to Malaga recently in favour of Antonio Adan.The Spanish champions went on to lose 3-2 in Andalusia but the 61-year-old has backed his skipper to bounce back.“Iker arrived at the age of 10,” he was quoted as saying by Marca.“His parents deserve a lot of merit, having brought him to the training centre, and I don’t think the were made of money.“Iker is the pride of Real Madrid. He is the only one to have come through the youth team, and it would be good to recognise what he was done as he’s done a lot. “He carries the values of Real Madrid.”last_img read more

Clippers step it up again without Griffin, demolish Kings, 126-99

first_imgThe Los Angeles Clippers entered their game Saturday against the Sacramento Kings with a record of 3-1 since star power forward Blake Griffin went down with a staph infection in his right elbow.It was suggested to coach Doc Rivers that perhaps Griffin’s injury is a blessing in disguise because it’s making others step up even more. DeAndre Jordan had three monster games in succession before Saturday, Glen “Big Baby” Davis is getting more minutes off the bench and consequently contributing more.Rivers at first scoffed.“I’m not going there, I can tell you that,” he said before the Clippers made it 4-1 without Griffin with a 126-99 victory over the Kings before a sellout crowd of 19,133 at Staples Center. “I thought our defense was really good tonight, it was able to get me going and get us in transition and we did a good job of moving the ball,” said Rivers, who came over in a trade from Boston via New Orleans. “I was ready to shoot.”Rivers never played a game for Boston after being traded from New Orleans. He said he is stoked the way things are working out.“It has been big for me,” he said. “You go to a situation where there is an opportunity; professional sports are all about opportunity and fit. … I love New Orleans, but I just did not fit in there as well as I do here. I fit in great.”Chris Paul wasn’t shocked at what he saw.“He (Rivers) is just aggressive,” Paul said. “He shot shots when they were there. He played the right way and he shared the ball. He can play. We are not surprised at that.”J.J. Redick scored 24 points for the Clippers and made 4 of 6 from 3-point range. Sixth-man Jamal Crawford scored 23 points, Paul had 10 points and doled out nine assists and Jordan scored 11 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. Jordan played only the first couple of minutes of the third quarter because he took his fourth foul at the 9:27 mark and went out. Davis contributed five points, eight rebounds and three assists.The Clippers, who led by as many as 37 points three times in the fourth quarter, made 14 of 35 (40 percent) from 3-point range.DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings (19-35) with 21 points and Rudy Gay scored 15. Omri Casspi had 11 points and 17 rebounds off the bench.Sacramento shot just 34.1 percent (30 of 88) from the field, proving what Austin Rivers said about his team’s defense. Cousins was just 6 of 19. He talked about the 16-0 Clippers onslaught that changed the game.“When they were on their run, we really didn’t know how to bounce back from it,” Cousins said. “I think some fatigue kicked in as well and our energy level went down. We let them gain confidence and they just ran away with the game.”Doc Rivers praised the overall play of the second unit.The Clippers, now in a virtual tie for fourth in the Western Conference with Portland (36-18), next play host to Memphis on Monday. The Grizzlies (39-14) are in second in the West. Rivers said that, “obviously,” it’s never good when your best players get hurt. But he admitted that there is something positive that can come out of it.“Hopefully, your team gets a little tougher mentally because they have to survive without their key guy,” Rivers said. “Hopefully, a couple of guys get their rhythm, start playing better, get their confidence. That’s what you hope when you have an injury to a key guy and I hope that’s what’s happening.”It certainly happened for Austin Rivers, son of Doc, in this one as the younger Rivers scored a career-high 28 points in 26-plus minutes off the bench. He shot 11 of 19 from the field, 5 of 9 from 3-point range. He scored seven of his points during a crucial 16-0 run that saw the Clippers (37-19) go from trailing 29-19 late in the first quarter to leading 35-29 early in the second.“His confidence has grown since he has been with the Clippers and that is good for him,” Doc Rivers said of his 22-year-old son.Austin Rivers afterward talked about his fine effort.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

From Balkans to Asia: all the Beauty of Winter Olympic Games’ Spirit (gallery)

first_img[wzslider]The 1984 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XIV Olympic Winter Games, represents a winter multi-sport event which took place from 8–19 February 1984 in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, in present-day Bosnia-Herzegovina. Other candidate cities were Sapporo, Japan; and Gothenburg, Sweden.It was the first Winter Olympics held in a Socialist/Communist state. It was also the second Olympics overall, as well as the second consecutive Olympics, to be held in a “Communist state” after the 1980 Summer Olympics were held in Moscow, Soviet Union. The only games that have since been held in a “communist state”are the 2008 Summer Olympics held in Beijing, China. A fourth Olympic Games, and second Winter games, may be held in a communist country if Beijing is successful against Almaty in its bid for the 2022.With Beijing bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics, China will be hoping to make more progress in winter Olympic sports in future.“Beijing’s bid for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games will inspire the enthusiasm of engaging in winter sports across China, and even all over Asia,” Liu Peng, the Chinese Olympic Committee (COC) president, said during Beijing’s presentation to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Launsanne on Tuesday.China has remoulded itself from a winter sport minnow to a competitive force since its Winter Olympics debut in 1980.Claiming its first-ever Winter Olympic medal (a sliver) in Albertville 1992 and its first-ever gold at Salt Lake City 2002, China has collected 12 gold, 22 sliver and 19 bronze medals in the past 10 winter games.Two years after its historic haul of 51 gold medals at the 2008 Summer Olympics, China reached its peak in winter sports with 11 medals, of which five are gold, in Vancouver 2010. For the first time China finished top 10 of the medals table at Winter Olympics.So far, China has ever qualified to compete in 11 sports of the past Winter Olympics, namely short track speed skating, speed skating, figure skating, curling, ice hockey, freestyle skiing, alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, ski jumping and snowboarding.Liu believes that China, a world power in summer sports, will also become a giant in winter sports as being promised in Beijing’s bid file for the 2022 Winter Olympics.“The bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics will boost participation and involvement in winter sports across the country, open a bright future for winter sports in China, Asia and the world, as China has set off on an ambitious ‘Long March’ to get 300 million Chinese people involved in skiing and skating events,” said Liu.(Source: ST, xinhuanet)last_img read more

Debbie Richards to captain England’s senior women

first_img30 Mar 2017 Debbie Richards to captain England’s senior women Debbie Richards, who helped England to win European senior gold, will captain the English senior women’s teams for 2017. Debbie, from Surrey, will lead the sides for the European senior women’s team championship in Slovakia from September 5-9 and for the senior women’s Home Internationals at Newport, Wales, from 3-5 October. England will be defending the Home Internationals and aiming for their fourth consecutive win and their 11th victory since the championship started in 2003. Debbie was a member of England’s invincible senior women’s side of 2014, which won both the European team championship and Home Internationals. She commented: “I am thrilled to have been invited to become the captain of the England senior team and very much look forward to trying to emulate the 2014 results. “I loved being part of the England squad. I will never forget the experience of not only the golf but also the camaraderie in the team and the general atmosphere at the events in which I played. “I would love another chance to play for England so will be trying my best in the matchplay and stroke play events this year. There are so many talented senior golfers which means the competition is very stiff with everyone’s goal, ultimately, being to earn a place in the team.” Debbie speedily played her way to the top of the game after making her senior debut in 2010 when she scored the first of two wins in the second flight of the English senior women’s amateur championship. She rapidly moved into the top flight and has been a semi-finalist in the senior amateur championship and had a string of top ten finishes in the senior stroke play. Debbie was a Welsh international as a girl, plays for her county, Surrey, in the second and senior teams and has won multiple championships at Burhill and Rye, where she is the current ladies’ champion. She was also a member at Royal Mid Surrey for over 20 years.last_img read more
