In 2019, our CEO, Daniel Nel, shared his thoughts on what it takes to be a good leader. Having successfully run Nebula for over 20 years, it’s safe to say that he knows a thing or two about how to lead a team and, ultimately, create the business of your dreams.
From superheroes and fine bottles or wine to leadership languages and baking bread, Nel is always willing to share his experiences and expertise so that he can help other businesses find success.
Here’s another look at some of the leadership lessons he shared in 2019.
#1 Business strategy: Identify your invisible advantage
Most people love a good hamburger. But what is it that makes you prefer one variation of a hamburger over another? In this post, Nel discussed the value of identifying what it is about your business that will make customer choose you over your competitors? He calls this your “invisible advantage” and stressed that leveraging this is what can make your business really stand out.
#2 The different faces of leadership
There isn’t single approach or strategy for successful leadership. It’s not a case of all good leaders do this and all poor leaders do that. Or all good leaders believe this and they don’t believe in that. In fact, there are various approaches to leadership and different facets that have to come together to make someone into a truly great leader. In this post, Nel unpacked the different “faces” of leadership.
#3 Baking bread in the Fourth Industrial Revolution
Rounding out the top three leadership lessons from 2019 is a recent article with a food-inspired theme. In this post, Nel unpacked a trend that should be on every business leader’s agenda – the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Given just how much all businesses are set to transform, he believes that no business can afford to avoid this conversation and that everyone should be planning for the changes that lie ahead.
