How Strong Is Your Character?

“(Commitment is) doing what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you were in when you said you were going to do it has passed.”

James Brown, Co-Founder Arena Growth Partners

We all make commitments to others. Sometimes we wish we hadn’t made those commitments. It happens to me all the time. I’ll set an appointment with a potential client. I’ll say “yes” to helping someone in their yard. I’ll tell my family I will take a day off from work. But, then something happens. Continue Reading…

Why Do People Follow?- The Survey Results

Leadership Hero Survey Results Graphs

Now it is official! The survey results are in. Why do you follow a leader?  What makes a leader great?  630 responses to two questions we posted across multiple social media forums and other venues gave us the answer.

Before I tell you the answer.  I am going to tell you what it is not.  People do not follow someone because they have the best education, are the smartest or are the most qualified.  The skills and compentencies that we get MBA’s for and spend millions of training dollars on only got 13% of the vote.   Continue Reading…

Private Tests Of A Leader’s Character

Private Tests Of Character

“No one is going to get hurt.”

In a nutshell:  “Your character is who you are when no one is watching.” We can all justify our choices by saying others won’t get hurt.  But we all know there can be collateral damage to others when a leader makes a poor, private choice.

However, I want to focus on the character implications of these private battles we face. The definition of character I use is:  Character is our habitual way of operating.  In other words, HOW I AM IS WHO I AM. Continue Reading…

Help Me Finish My Book – Who Is Your Leadership Hero?

Friends,

I need a favor. Please help my dad, General Jim Anderson and I write our leadership book. We want to better understand what each of you admires in a leader. It will take you less than 2 minutes to answer these questions below.

Maybe they are someone you know personally, or have read about, or seen in the movies – Who do you admire and what do you admire about them? We will present the data collected in the introduction of our book.

Thank you in advance in helping us write this book on leadership. We will continue to update you on our progress and any milestone dates in the publishing process.

Lead Well!
Dave

Common Sense is Making Me Common

Common Sense Makes Me Common

I am an idea person. Some of the ideas I have are a little off the wall.   When my brain is firing on all cylinders ideas come in a flood. The ideas role in for new blog posts, phrases for the book I am writing, marketing plans etc.

I think many of us have something deep inside we want to do. But, that idea or new direction is stuck in the mire created by our common sense. If I only do what common sense tells me to do, am I dooming myself to just being common? Does my reliance on common sense keep me doing common things with common results? 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…

The Root Cause of Bad Leadership

The Root Cause of Bad Leadership?

Untrustworthy? Poor communication/listening? Micromanaging? Selfishness? Uncaring/Demeaning? When I ask people about the worst leaders they worked for, these are some descriptions I receive.

Many people believe if you fix these things you will be a better leader. We go to seminars and listen to podcasts (mine included) looking for answers. We read blogs and articles and books about improving in all these areas. “The 12 Skills Leaders Need to…”

The solutions presented are treatments to the symptoms of a disease that runs deeper. I believe the root issue needs to be identified so the treatment plan can actually change the leader and not just treat the symptom. Continue Reading…
