Fundamental Principles of Leadership – Webinar for 5/31 at 9pm EDT

May 24, 2012 in Business, Leadership, Motivation, Personal Growth, Project Management, Successful Living

In this new era of collaboration and constant change, more than ever before, our success at home, in the community or at work is largely determined by our ability to lead people.  Many times we find ourselves struggling to get results but cannot understand why the results we seek seem so distant and unreachable.  Consequently, we more often than not resort to manipulation techniques and scare tactics that often backfire.

This introduction to the fundamental principles of leadership presents you with an opportunity to learn the building blocks of sustainable leadership upon which you can build and achieve successes both in your private and professional life.

We will: 

  1. Explore 3 pillars/fundamental principles that will allow you to lead effectively
  2. Define true leadership
  3. Provide you with tools to help you to lift your leadership lid to new levels
  4. Underscore the importance of establishing a personal growth plan

Learn these principles and you’ll learn to lead. If you ignore them, then you're always going to struggle with leadership.

Join us on Thursday, May 31st at 9:00 PM EDT by calling (712) 432-0900 and entering 252039 # as the access code.

Your Habits: The Secret to Your Success or Your Failure!

Your life, my life and everyone else' in this world is run by habits: good or bad.

Some people are addicted to drugs - a negative habit, while others are addicted to taking time to read and reflect - a positive habit.

Most of the things you do, you do on autopilot. Now this Read the rest of this entry →

Could you be sabotaging your success and screwing your life over?

January 10, 2012 in Leadership, Motivation, Personal Growth, Successful Living

At the beginning of every year, many people make resolutions that they even forgot making by the middle of January.  Statistics show that 97% of people who make resolutions fail to carry them out.  If there are no intentional actions behind those resolutions, 2012 will be just another year and nothing significant would have changed.  While making resolution and setting goals is a great practice, there is usually a gap that separates those who achieve their goals and those who don't. And that gap - the great separator between success and failure - is action.

Mel Robbins in the video below urges us to stop sabotaging ourselves and screwing ourselves over by understanding and using the power of activation energy. Lead your life instead of just living your life. Reduce points of procrastination and roadblocks preventing you from pursuing and achieving your dreams by putting some intentional actions behind those resolutions.

Here's to a successful and fruitful 2012.  Happy New Year!

This week, I'm sharing with you the second category that I believe have largely change the trajectory of my life. Having the gifts is one thing. But the choices that you make after having received those gifts are another. I recognized this fact many years ago and since then I have paid more attention to the impact of my choices on my life.

Now, before I continue I should be the one to tell you that I haven't always made the best choices. But what I know is this: If you make more bad choices than you make good choices, the trajectory of your life looks like
