When I was a graduate student, my professor quoted Pastor Andy Stanley in our Leadership class. I don’t remember the exact quote; however, this is what I took from it. The clearer your vision, the fewer options you have, because with a clear vision decisions are few. In the Power of Purpose class that I teach, I take students beyond their vision and have them connect to their personal philosophy so they can have balance of spirit, soul and body.

Speaking our message in the five languages of leadership is essential to clear communications. Those we lead will only hear us if you speak in their language. Oftentimes we, as leaders, are so assigned to our language that we believe those who are not hearing us are rebelling against us. In most cases that is not true.
In my forth book the “Five Languages of Leadership” to be released early spring, I help frontrunners own their personal leadership language style...Read Full Post »

I’ve said it before and will say it again. We were not created to live, work or play alone. Each aspect of our lives, unless it’s our personal renewal time, is more effective when we include others. Whether to involve them in rewards, benefits or profits, we tend to have more joy when we share the limelight of our success, unless we are self-centered. It’s been my experience that self-centered leaders end up tragically alone and defeated.
In my book Five S...Read Full Post »

Back in the late 90’s one of my favorite professors, Dr. Rodney Jackson, at Beulah Heights University gave our class a book to read that I have kept in my library all these years. The book’s title, “Celebration of Discipline: The path to spiritual growth” was intriguing to me from the onset. The author Richard J. Foster, a Quaker, takes the reader on a three part journey of disciplines that truly are paths to spiritual growth. Inward, outward and corporate disciplines...Read Full Post »

As I prepared for today's tasks, two words ordered my steps, "Refined Silver". Leading a team of leaders is never easy, especially if you talk to them in "your" language...Read Full Post »

The shift from where you are as a leader to where God wants you to be is not for the faint of heart. The good news is that we have models to learn from. Take for ...Read Full Post »

As successful leaders, we have the amazing responsibility to ensure that our actions are directed by a pure and honorable balance of the spirit, soul and body. And it doesn’t stop there because we must love the work we do, as we empower others to love the work that they do. No one is left behind; thus, if someone cannot serve with us, we gratefully help th...Read Full Post »

"We are free to love, have joy, make peace, be longsuffering, be gentle, share goodness, walk in faith, give mercy, and have self control on this Independence Day! Enjoy your freedom in Jesus' Name!!!" This was my July 4, 2014 post to Facebook.
As successful leaders, we must be willing to love the unlovable; have joy in time of sorrow; make p...Read Full Post »
