Provide an inspiring vision and strategic alignment, launch a crusade





As a leader, you must envision the future, passionately believe that you can make a difference, and inspire people to achieve more than they may ever have dreamed possible. You must see a changed world beyond the time horizon, create an ideal and unique image of what it could become, open your followers' eyes and lift their spirits.

  Leadership attributes quotes vision, inspirer, achiever VadiK



You must believe that you can turn your dream to reality and, through your attitude, get people to see exciting opportunities and possibilities for the future. People change and unlock their inner power when they are emotionally engaged and committed.

Lead by Example





Help people connect their personal goals to business goals





Leadership is essentially about helping people to achieve a better life.

An important measure of your own success as a leader is the success of your followers. Creative, intrapreneurial, empowered, and talented employees are the prime ingredient of organizational success and they need to be able to lead themselves.

  Leadership definition quotes, Vadim Kotelnikov



Provide strategic alignment and be a coach to your people to help each of your followers to develop into an effective self-leader. Establish an attitude of relentless growth to enable your organization and people to achieve their stretch goals.



Motivational Coaching

Inspiring Culture





Make relentless innovation a religion





Lead innovation, emphasize opportunities, not problems, and encourage innovative behavior.

Establishing the culture of innovation requires a broad and sustained effort. Questions are critical to innovation, so start with creating a culture of questioning.

Exploration of possibilities, discoveries, innovation, and progress start with challenging assumptions, asking searching “Why?” and “What if?” questions, and plying “What if” scenarios.

Encourage entrepreneurial creativity and experimentation





Build an entrepreneurial organization, develop entrepreneurial staff and create a corporate climate that encourages outside-the-box thinkers, rule breakers, and intrapreneurs. Experimentation by definition is a trial-and-error process, but experimentation is also the key to discovery. Without action, you cannot know whether or not your innovative ideas will actually work.

Motivate, inspire and energize people, recognize achievements





Financial rewards do encourage people to produce results. But the kind of ownership that really generates energy is not financial. It is emotional.

Set stretch targets – they inspire and energize people. As a leader, become a positive and encouraging person.

Encourage risk taking




Risk Taking best quotes chance to take of VadiK MesIm Dennis  

Take risks – intelligently. Don't play it safe. Making mistakes is essential to innovation and organizational growth, as long as systems are developed to learn from failures and to avoid making the same mistake twice. The more people fail, the more they succeed. They learn from taking action, from mistakes, from feedback, from getting going.




Treat failures as learning opportunities. Develop a tolerance for mistakes and give your people freedom to fail forward, learn from failures, and start again more intelligently.


Noble Failure

Turn Failures to Opportunities





Make business fun





As business today is about passion and creating new things, fun has become a big element in the business strategy of many highly successful businesses.
