Generous Leaders Connect at a More Intimate Level

Generous Leaders Connect at a More Intimate Level

“My main goal has always been to offer the best of myself. We all grow – as a collective whole – when I’m able to build up others and help them grow as individuals.”
Christopher Perilli, CEO, Pixel Mobb

I have been working on writing short blog posts about the 22 Must-Have Leadership Qualities that were listed in the March 2016 Entrepreneur Magazine.  It’s taken me awhile (it’s been a year) but I’m getting to the end of the list. You can read past blog posts here.

#17 is Generosity and while the quote is not one of my favorites, it’s certainly one of the best qualities to have in a leader.

Love, Care and Serve

Love, Care and Serve

Recently, I finished reading the book, The Carpenter: A Story About the Greatest Success Strategies of All, by Jon Gordon and wanted to share a little bit about what I learned and what I thought others might be interested in knowing about the book.  It was a very easy read and the entire book can be summarized easily in a few paragraphs.The main takeaway is to live your life and run your businesses based upon the following guiding principles:=&0=&

They are each rather obvious when applied to be being a parent or a spouse, but when applied to business can be a little more challenging to grasp.  It’s not intuitive to relate the words love and care to a business, but throughout the book, it was reinforced that businesses that truly love what they do and care for their customers have more success and fulfillment.

Everyone can choose to love,

Positivity in the Face of Difficult Circumstances

Positivity in the Face of Difficult Circumstances

In the March 2016 Entrepreneur Magazine, there was a great article about  22 Must-Have Leadership Qualities.  I found the article to be so powerful that I am spending a few minutes each week thinking about how I can improve these leadership skills myself.  Like most things in life, you get what you focus your attention on.  Here is #16 – Positivity.

“In order to achieve greatness,  you must create a culture of optimism.  There will be many ups and downs, but the prevalence of positivity will keep the company going.  But be warned: This requires fearlessness.  You have to truly believe in making the impossible possible.”
Jason Harris, CEO, Mekanism

As a Leader You Need the Multiplier Effect

In the March 2016 Entrepreneur Magazine, there was a great article about  22 Must-Have Leadership Qualities.  I found the article to be so powerful that I am spending a few minutes each week thinking about how I can improve these leadership skills myself.  Like most things in life, you get what you focus your attention on.  Here is #15 – Empowerment.

“Many of the my leadership philosophies were learned as an athlete. My most successful teams didn’t always have the most talent but did have teammates with the right combination of skills, strengths and a common trust in each other.  To build an “overachieving” team, you need to delegate responsibility and authority.  Giving away responsibilities isn’t always easy. It can actually be harder to do than completing the task yourself, but with the right project selection and support, delegation can pay off in dividends. It is how you truly find people’s capabilities and get the most out of them.”
Shannon Pappas, senior vice president, Beachbody LIVE

If you are like me, you try to do it all. You want to create the strategy as well as implement it and execute it.  While this seems like a great way to accomplish your goals and to maintain a sense of control over your projects, long term this is a losing formula and should be avoided at all costs.

I’ve done a lot of thinking about this recently and have come to the conclusion that in order to

The Compound Effect – Begin With the End In Mind

The Compound Effect – Begin With the End In Mind

In a former life, I was a professional triathlete and triathlon coach. I helped athletes with a wide range of athletic backgrounds accomplish one of the greatest physical tests of endurance known to man: completing the Ironman, a combined 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run. When clients would first come to me and ask for advice about their training plan, they would inevitably
