As I was tidying some old files and briefcases in my home office, I came across an old notebook that I used to carry around with me all the time (see the cover image of this post).
What was interesting is that I found some notes about leadership that I was penning in 1993 – quite a few years ago!
I remember that at the time, I had just started my business 2 years before, after working in large international accounting firms for the previous 9 years, so I was keen to develop the culture of my own firm in a way that would differentiate it from other small accounting firms.
I had attended Business Schools in the US as part of my employment with the large accounting firm I was with and some of these notes came from a book called The Leadership Challenge by Kouzes and Posner.
I thought it would be interesting to provide my notes about Leadership from 1993 and see how much I had changed in my thinking.
