Now Reading: Irrefutable Laws of Leadership – 19

The Law of Timing: When to lead is as important as what to do and where to go. If a leader repeatedly shows poor judgment, even in little things, people start to think that having him or her as the leader is the real mistake. When the right leader and the right timing come together, incredible things happen.

This is pretty obvious stuff isn’t it? This is the vote of no confidence scenario. It does make me wonder how that person came into power to begin with. In my observation, this typically occurs though the “Good-ole-Boy” network which is frequently self-serving and often fraught with problems. The other mechanism is brute force. When the optimal “Inspiration – Perspiration” quotient arrives, there is always someone who answers that call. The amusing part about this is that people take notice and it is equated with some higher influence when the reality is that someone possessing leadership skills made their opportunity and ran with it. When you begin to associate positive events with ethereal influences, it is only logical that you must also associate the negative.
