Here's how Dole led through challenging and difficult times in his life:
Surviving trying times can help build character—and careers. In many ways, former Republican Senator Bob Dole , who died Sunday at age 98, certainly lived through and survived some trying times which molded and shaped his character, career and leadership style.
in which he said that, Dole’s ”... first speech as a senator advocating for the rights of individuals with disabilities proved to be a harbinger of a career devoted to ensuring the civil rights of all Americans, from his support for the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 to serving as a leading voice on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
“Bob Dole’s lifetime of public service exemplified the notion that civil and human rights are not a partisan issue. Some of his strongest friendships were across the political aisle. Our current elected officials would do well to honor his memory and work for the common good.”
Be Determined To SucceedLiam Johnson, CEO of TheHitchStore, said,"What I admire most about Bob Dole is how he coped up with adversity. Despite his physical limitations because he couldn't use his right hand, he had the courage to get through the difficult times and looked at things from a different perspective. I remember reading an article where he said that if he couldn't greet people with his right hand, he could reach them with his left. headtopics.com
“As a business leader, it is important to be determined to succeed even in the face of adversity. Always persevere and don't let the fire inside you die. Accept the challenge and continue moving forward. In business, we don't always achieve what we want. There will be mishaps and challenges, that's for sure, but remember that when one door closes, a window opens.”
Depend On OthersNathan Hughes,marketing director at DiggityMarketing, said that, “I have admired Senator Dole for a long time. There was a lot to learn from that person. He used to radiate a handful of leadership qualities that a business leader should adopt.
“One such quality was "Lead by example" amongst the many. During World War II, when Lt. Dole moved to the front lines with his other soldiers instead of staying back. He was injured by a grenade later and even lost the use of his right hand forever.
“Another such quality is "Seek Help from Other." Usually, leaders would hesitate to seek help from other people. Leaders perceive themselves as the lone warrior. But Sen. Dole proved in many instances that a good leader can depend on others too. headtopics.com
“Business leaders must inculcate these qualities in them to achieve great success in their careers,” he concluded.Encourage People“One of the most important leadership lessons we can learn from Bob Dole is how important it was to encourage people to work together for the common good,” according to psychotherapist and author
Christina Steinorth-Powell. “Bob Dole encouraged people to negotiate their differences and search for common ground—this is why everyone liked him. “He believed encampments in either direction were not a good thing and counterproductive to getting a job done. He wasn't strong handed in his approach and often used humor to lighten the mood even if the joke was at his own expense,” she noted.
Find Ways To Make Things WorkJesse Forrestis the founder of Copywriting Crew, a digital agency that provides writing services for business owners. He said, “Senator Bob Dole is the one responsible for making me a very patient person. I’ve admired him for having absolute patience.
“He’s a man who always [wanted] to make things work. As long as you wait for the perfect timing, there’s no way you can’t get what you want. For him, the welfare of other people should always come first. And that is what makes him a great leader. In leadership, command and obedience is what matters. Without the latter, you’re just merely someone who loves to command but will never have a follower.” headtopics.com
‘Be Out Front’One Soldier’s Story: A Memoir,“the Senator wrote words that impacted my whole life: ‘(...) instinct told me that a leader had to be out front. He must be willing to endure the fire rather than hide from it, or let somebody else take the brunt of the blows.’
“This is the essence of so-called servant leadership, which I consider to be the best model of leadership. Senator Dole valued compassion and empathy, which made him an outstanding example of an inspiring leader and man. That’s the lesson I’ll never forget.”Read more: Forbes »
