Leadership – Duty and Setting the Example

More is caught than taught!

Thank goodness politicians are not the only examples we have for leadership. Rarely do their words match their actions. They may be great speakers, but who cares! Our words mean nothing unless our actions follow those words.

The actions of an introverted Leader of Character will lead a team to excellence before the eloquent words of hypocritical extrovert. Our actions create followers more than our words do. Continue Reading…

Your Choices Make You or Break You

Who I am as a person is determined by the choices I make in life. Courage is a choice. Humility is a choice. Integrity is a choice. Selflessness is a choice. Duty is a choice. Positivity is a choice.

My circumstances may not be in my control, but the choices I make in the midst of those circumstances are. Each time I am faced with a choice, I am either moving closer to the person I want to be or further from it.   Continue Reading…

The #1 Priority For Leadership Development

The Tools Don't Make The Leader

A man came to my house the other day asking for work.  I handed him a hammer and some nails and told him to build a tree house for my kids.

In fact, I gave him every tool he needed to complete the job.  He should be able to build the tree house if I give him the right tools, shouldn’t he?  Not necessarily… Continue Reading…

How To Become The Leader You Want To Be

JUST DO IT!

No one ever gets in shape by reading a fitness magazine or by going to the gym once. We get in shape by actually breaking a sweat. You have to do more than read the principles in a book or article. You need to DO them.

You have to DO what you want to BE! Continue Reading…

Whistleblowers May Not Have Integrity

Why is she blowing the whistle?

A whistleblower will receive up to 10-30% of the fines paid by an employer for an SEC violation. The False Claim Acts will allow whistleblowers to receive 15-25% of the fines paid.  If someone has impure motives for doing the right thing, should that be considered an act of integrity?

Be careful how you answer this, because we can all have ulterior motives at times. We may look good from the outside, but why did we really do the right thing? Continue Reading…

Two Keys To Avoiding Over-Commitment

Saying "Yes" can be an affliction

Yes is one word.  It is one word that can please so many and also let so many people down.  I struggle to say NoNo does not come easily, but it has saved me and saved my credibility more than once.

I am sure I am not alone.  I often commit to a good project or a good cause due to my desire to please others.  I, like many other people who over-commit themselves, end up damaging relationships rather than strengthening them. Continue Reading…

Integrity: Compromise or Consequences

Which choice will you make?

If I only do the right thing when it is easy, is that truly integrity? There were times in my life I considered myself a man of integrity, but I truly only did the right thing when I had nothing to lose.

Doing the right thing is easy if I have nothing at risk, but is that truly integrity or is it just the path of least resistance? When my integrity is challenged, I am really choosing between two things: Compromise or Consequences. Continue Reading…
