    Hi!, I’m new on here and glad to be a part of the threaded.

  2. Karl Rohde says:

    I love the Robin Sharma approach to work and life, ego aside and balance in the front.

    Highlight in this blog from a management perspective is keeping yourself level headed: LEAD WITHOUT TITLE.

    On the street the office title means little. The CEO still needs to wait in line at the supermarket queue like everyone else.

    Thanks Andrew.

  3. Thanks Karl – I agree with your comments. Some people seem to hide behind titles – and it shows. Having real substance means treating everyone as an equal in my mind.

    I only recently learned about Robin Sharma and have been following his blog and tweets from time to time. He has actually been rated as one of the top leadership development training consultants in the world and you can read his blog on his website ( http://www.robinsharma.com ) – he is pretty regular with it.

  5. Thanks Bahadur – Robin has an excellent website – and lots of good free material. Thanks for recommending it.
