If your like most people I talk with you want to do something significant.  Rarely do I meet someone that would raise their hand and say I don’t want to be successful.  The problem is that many people allow their current position shape their perspective of what could be.  I’m guessing that if you are reading this blog you want to be successful, you want to make a difference, and you want to develop your potential.

But my guess is that you keep running into obstacles.

Does this sound like you?

  • Do you feel like you have more to give the organization or business and your boss is limiting your ability to lead more?
  • Do you have challenging peer leaders that think success is found in personal competition?
  • Do you have a team that struggles to move as one unit in a unified direction?  Or worse doesn’t seem to be moving at all?
  • Do you personally struggle to get better because of your frustration.

I know how you feel.

I know what it feels like to be a significant leader in the organization and have to find ways to be helpful, even though you don’t sit in all the significant conversations.

For years I struggled to manage the demands of growth, success, and responsibilities.  My answer was often found by working too much and wanting to push even harder.

I finally came to realize that being a 2nd chair leader is actually liberating.  I learned better habits and how to maximize my perspective to unleash not only my potential, but the potential of everyone around me.

I found that I might actually have more influence in the 2nd chair than I would if I sat at the top of the organization.  I get to make everyone better!

My Goal in Writing this Blog

20160424-_DSC5430

I hope to help successful and talented  leaders leverage their influence and unleash their potential.  I want to inspire, challenge, and teach people to use 360 leadership.

I will write in 5 categories.

Lead Self-  It’s been said that the hardest person to lead is yourself.

Lead Followers- Leadership is not measured by title but by helping people get better. Leading followers is simply that– helping them and in turn allowing them to help the organization.

Lead Leaders-  How you empower leaders to likely dictate how far your team will go. How you lead and serve your boss will determine how critical you are to your business or organization.  How you lead other peer leaders will reveal your true heart.

Lead Organizations-  Building and growing a healthy organization is fun, demanding, and fulfilling all at the same time.

Leadership Cohorts- One of the best and most underutilized environments for personal leadership development. Every leader should find or start a cohort immediately.

Resources-  Photos, videos, quotes, tools, and other things I think that might be helpful.
