Make Your Day and Get Out of Your Way!

Sometimes we need to get out of our own way and take a chance. However, fear of failure, of being laughed at, not liked, thought badly of, can prevent us from pushing ourselves into the unknown and stop us from gradually moving forward into developing new skills, abilities and life experiences. Let’s look at some ways we can to remedy that.

Will You Commit To Take A FRESH Look At Yourself?

Although, it seems, the vast – majority of people, seem to feel – strongly, in a positive way, about all aspects of their lives, and how they proceed, forward, very few of these individuals, are, ready, willing, and/ or, able, to give themselves, a check – up, from the neck – up, in a truly, objective and introspective manner!

We are currently witnessing, one of the major political…

If You Don’t Want To SERVE, You Shouldn’t Become A Leader!

After, over four decades of involvement, in nearly, every aspect related to effectively leading, from identifying and qualifying, to training, developing, and consulting to thousands of actual, and/ or, potential leaders, to, personally, serving as a leader, several times, I have become convinced, perhaps the greatest – single challenge to discovering, truly – meaningful leaders, is, finding individuals, ready, willing, and able to SERVE others, considering one’s stakeholders, and specific organization’s needs, priorities, and perceptions, first, rather than any personal/ political agenda, and/ or, self – interest! With, all the other skills, aptitude, and skill – set, required, to be the finest…
