LEAD. GROW. INSPIRE.
"Everyday Leadership Acts of Courage" is a series of articles authored by Lynda Silsbee, Founder of the Alliance for Leadership Acceleration and member of the Forbes Coaches Council. The article series, as seen on Forbes.com, reflects on Lynda's gratitude to those, past and present, who have chosen to be courageous leaders in the work-world and the lessons everyone can learn from them.
In Lynda's first article in the series, she writes about 360-degree feedback, which in and of itself, is an act of courage. The second article titled "To Lead, You Must Be Vulnerable" focuses on courage, openness and vulnerability.
We look forward to introducing the final article in the series in the next issue of our Leadership Matters newsletter. If you would like to be added to our mailing list to stay in the loop on topics similar to this, sign up to join our mailing list here.

Many of us have learned the virtues and necessity of delegating responsibilities and tasks. This is typically trained from the delegator's point of view. However, since many more are delegatee's, there isn't much that has been published on how to be a great delegatee. Being a great delegatee will distinguish you as someone who can be trusted and gets things done.
Checklist: How to be a great “Delegatee"
Checklist: How to honor your word when you can’t keep your word.
