Real Leaders do make a Difference

So there you are – in control, quite content, coasting along, impressed with yourself. You have settled well into your new job, the team is chugging along just fine, and their overall performance is OK – not spectacular, but OK. You are doing a good job, right? Maybe, maybe not. The question you have to ask yourself is this: have you actually made a difference since you took over as manager, have you actually added any value to the job? Think about it – if you were to leave now, what…

After 2.5 years on sick leave I am eventually returning to the real world. I will be putting all my faculties and studies learnt back into action. I have recently undergone two cornea transplants and have taken my eyesight from 10% to 20/20. The grey hair will remain as I have earned every strand. I am on permanent medication for the Bipolar but that I have to live with. It's just nice to be back even if only in an advisory position to start.
