      Tips for Making Good Decisions

      tips for making good decisions as a leader
      Earlier this month, President Trump announced that his administration is going to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement. It was certainly a bold decision, for while many in the United States applauded it, many other Americans and governments throughout the international community objected. As is often the case with decisions of this magnitude, the efficacy of this decision may not be known or understood for a number of years. However, as an important person who represents millions of diverse people in a position of supreme leadership, President Trump understood that the responsibility for making the decision ultimately rested on him, and he took the steps he deemed necessary to come to this significant conclusion.   .....Read More

      The danger of gossip within an organization

Whether or not the gossip is true, it is often toxic, spreading faster than a virus in a kindergarten classroom. Not only does gossip bring down morale, it affects the culture of the organization.

      The 12 Principles of Personal Leadership: Principle 6—Dealing with Disappointments

      Personal Leadership Principle 6 - Dealing with Disappointment
      We come from diverse cultures and backgrounds, yet there is a universal experience that we all have to face in life…disappointment and discouragement. If we aren’t careful, this can become a vicious cycle. A negative event occurs and we become discouraged, it affects the quality of our decision-making, we become frustrated, the stress begins to take a toll on our attitude, we become gloomy and start to focus on the negative aspects of every situation, we become more discouraged, and the cycle continues. When you produce positive results, you will feel good about yourself.  Sadly, the reverse is also true.  .....Read More

      When the Biggest Risk Is Not Taking One at All


      Lou Gehrig, nicknamed the “Iron Horse” because of his batting ability and his continuity as first baseman for the New York Yankees, was a gentle, reserved man. On a hot summer day in 1930, Gehrig did something quite uncharacteristic. He stood at the plate, swung and missed for two strikes, and then watched the third pitch whiz by without even twitching. As the umpire called, “strike three…you’re out!” Lou Gehrig was seen throwing his bat to the ground and exchanging words with the ump.  .....Read More

      The Effects of Negativity on Goal Achievement and Personal Leadership—It’s an Inside Job 

      How negativity affects the ability to achieve your goals
      Have you ever heard the old adage, “You are what you eat?” This refers to the fact that if you eat junk, you will eventually feel like, well, junk. The same theory applies to other areas of our lives. We will undoubtedly produce what we put in front of ourselves. If you take in the positive, the results will be productive and valuable. You can’t expect to create something that you didn’t first conceive and envision. This means putting what you want to achieve in front of you. Hang on to your vision and revisit it often to inspire and motivate you through the good and bad times.  .....Read More
