Among all the other lessons we try to pass on to our kids, what are the leadership lessons we can pass on to our children to put them on the right path to their own success and greatness?
True leadership ability has no face. It has no title. Leadership isn’t limited to the few, but possible by the masses. It can be practiced by anyone.

How does your leadership transfer across endeavors?
How effective is it from one environment to the next, whether adjusting from your professional to personal or any other environment in which you might operate?

Leadership is about taking in and utilizing the resources around you, whether it is for a cause or mission greater than yourself, or for your own development.
The tools you need…
Leadership is so many things. There are so many facets to it, examples of it, and sources for it.

Leaders traditionally might have been seen as those that take, dole out, and build their power. But leadership is the opposite. It is not about taking, it’s about giving. That…
Leadership Lesson: You can’t treat someone how they want to be treated (The Platinum Rule) without first working with them effectively enough (The Golden Rule) to learn how they want to be treated.
Although The Self 60 – Professional Development Mind/Set is numbered, the list is not necessarily listed in rank or priority order. Even though that’s the case, the…
Free lessons in leadership exist in the everyday. They’re everywhere; you just need (and want) to look around and take stock of them.
Again, leadership exists everywhere and not just in those who have official titles or positions of “leadership” such as management. So look to the actions of those around you whose actions and demeanor work in tandem to develop, influence,…
This time of year we all get sentimental. The season is about family, friends, and realizing the true value of what we have as we close out the year, where toward the end of that celebratory season we’re then faced with what we will take on in New Year’s resolutions.

Even during this pandemic & the state of our country, I still hear too often, "Well, that's the way it's always been done." or "That's the way our industry does it." There STILL isn't enough of a sense of urgency. Not all "companies know." #innovation ow.ly/IqF730qNHWD
