Upgrade Your Decision Making


What do you stand for?   What does your organization stand for?  Is this clear to all of your team?  Establishing core values for your life and for your organization is one of the best things you can do to improve results.

What Makes A Leader Great

Though many experts would have you believe otherwise, I’ve learned great leadership comes down to an accumulation of doing a lot of small and simple things consistently. When leaders discipline themselves to do little things each day that show those they lead that they care about them, it has a transformative effect on everyone.  At the crux of great leadership is consistency. Sure doing the right things every once in a while is nice and will have some impact but results will never last long this way. However, when a leader can do simple things over and over and over again without fail, that’s when they truly change the lives of those they lead. Consistency in doing small things [...]

Why A Vision?


Every great company is lead and guided by a vision. A vision is what the organization eventually hopes to accomplish or the contribution it hopes to make in this world. Much like a mission statement and core values, a vision should be well articulated and referred to often. It should be easy to understand and be clear.   A vision can be viewed as being unrealistic by others. It is a long-term goal. When leaders are establishing a vision they should consider the idea of when they are gray and old, looking back, what is the number one thing they hope to achieve through their organization. 20, 30 or [...]
