Rouser

April 11th, 2011  |  Published in godeeper, Rouser

Announcement: ROUSER

A responsible leader serves as the #1 champion of an organization. This advocate articulates mission and brand of a business and ignites and excites stakeholders.
This person sets the tone and guides activities and is the force we call the ROUSER.
The ROUSER sets off a chain reaction that permeates ideas, imaginations, commitments, efforts, achievements, and people. In this increasingly complex world, the ROUSER also needs something of paramount importance. That is, the ROUSER must infuse ethics into all aspects, activities, and achievements of an organization, including earnings.

As such, the ROUSER sets the standards for all of the R’s in the THAP model.

It’s run by a man whose dedication to a cause bigger than himself has poised Alibaba to revolutionize China’s e-commerce, banking, and insurance industries — not to mention, expand its global operations.

Previously posted @Forbes

 

The world is changing faster now than ever before, and if companies don’t react quickly and effectively to those changes, they’re destined to fall by the wayside. One way corporations can keep ahead of the curve is by installing a Chief Reason Officer (CRO), or so says Luis Gallardo, a global brand and marketing leader and author of the just-published book Brands and Rousers.

Don’t just be a leader. Be a rouser!

Luis Gallardo, Author of Brands & Rousers.The Holistic System to Foster High-Performing Businesses, Brands and Careers.

 

Previously posted @UpStart

 

To lead individuals, companies, and a marketplace, you want to be a rouser. Rousers believe in empowering. They understand the human need for psychological fulfillment. They have that “special something” that bestows upon them the ability to motivate people.

 

Think about the job situations you’ve been in with bosses who led well and those who did not. What characteristics did you see that you want to mimic? What characteristics do you want to avoid?

Is Your Business Resilient Enough?

The ability to quickly adapt, recover and reinvigorate in business is a constant requirement

 

“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game-winning shot … and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that’s precisely why I succeed,” said basketball great Michael Jordan.

 

In a world defined by rapid change and volatility, resilience has taken on a whole new meaning. It is no longer simply a case of being able to fend off the occasional knock here and there–the ability to quickly adapt, recover and return reinvigorated is a constant requirement.
