Leader-Less

Ants are some of the most diligent creatures on earth. Aspiring leaders can learn a thing or two from ants – how to work hard for what they want and how best to lead their followers in simple ways. We as humans are obsessed with leadership. Ants don’t have any leaders. We build huge inefficient

Attitude of Gratitude

Today, I am keenly aware of the fact that life is far better than I deserve. Which is saying something these days. The truth is the world is full of pain and suffering. Hardship and turmoil. Disappointment and regret. So the fact that I can be thankful (and mean it) today is, in its own

Personal Resposibility

The night my two boys were able to join me at the hospital after my accident, we all slept in the same room. Three year-old Christian laid next to me in my hospital bed, and Kyler slept beside his mom on a cot next to us. As Christian slipped in beside me he asked, “Daddy,

Can Do Attitude

People with a “can do” attitude almost always get the job done – regardless of the obstacles. Unfortunately, many with that same “can do” attitude sometimes consider safety one of those obstacles. This brings out the tragic, and actual, case of John, who no doubt “attacked” his work with a “can do” attitude. Most of

All You Have Is Integrity

Everyone knows right from wrong. Right? Wrong. Integrity shouldn’t be an option. Unfortunately, it appears to be that way. Integrity means wholeness. In morality/ethics, it means having a point of view about what is right, doing what is right, and — at the highest level — taking a stand to correct what is not right.

SAFETY APPEAL

We all have a natural tendency to want to be safe. Put another way, psychologists say that normal individuals possess certain desires through which safety becomes appealing. These desires include: • Avoiding personal injury • Avoiding personal loss • Reward seeking • Striving for leadership • Excelling • Preventing injuries to others • Avoiding making

Find Your Center

When we get off course in our lives, and we lean too far to one side, we lose our center. We lose our ability to be solid in our decision-making. It’s a tricky predicament in which to find ourselves; once leaning slightly, now falling, fast and hard. I found it is more difficult to get

To Trust or Not to Trust

The world lost a great man this morning. A man that leaves behind a legacy unlike any other. Stephen Covey was, in my book, among the greatest of all time. The life lessons I learned not only from his many books he wrote, but by watching the life he led were life changing. The following

Twenty Twenty Foresight

The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born – that there is a genetic factor to leadership. This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born. Failing organizations are usually over-managed and under-led. Leaders are

Soar On Your Own Wings By Receiving Change

On that day when my life changed, I had a choice. I could resist what was happening, or I could receive change into my life and move forward with it. Those two words, “resist” or “receive” make the difference in our life experience. Life happens. While we wish it wasn’t so, tragedy happens. Change is
