Teams that ask a lot of questions are the best.
I offer a few ways to create success on the job, without knowing the kind of work you do.
High performance teams require strong leaders, capable of influencing experts towards a specific goal. Leading a group toward any vision requires an understanding of people. This understanding only comes by listening…
I just watched a series on HBO called “The Defiant Ones”. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I just thought it was a story about Dr. Dre and NWA’s rise to superstardom. I can’t say I was a huge fan of the music, but I do like a good success story. As always, I’m steadily looking for leadership lessons in everything and this documentary provided me with an unexpected epiphany. And it didn’t have anything to do with Dr. Dre or NWA.
You’ve all been there… At the end of your rope with no hope. Delaying what you feel is inevitable, with futile attempts to stay relevant to your goal. As you hang in the balance and your mind shifts towards giving up, to save yourself the embarrassment of failure, there’s one more thing you should try…

Being a winner is such an “on purpose” thing. It’s a habit and a mindset. Winning takes practice, persistence, faith and focus. It’s not going to happen by accident. There are many people out here working very hard to ensure you don’t have accidental success.
That’s why things worth having are hard to attain. You don’t accidentally come in first place. People don’t accidentally complete the project. Teams don’t accidentally win championships. These things take concentrated effort and sacrifice.
As a boss in the middle, you have to remember that no one is going to give you anything. You need to go hard. You need to go wisely.
You can only trust God 100%, so keep Him first!
How can you tell if you’re actually leading?
A few days ago, CEO’s took part in a CEO initiative, aimed at bringing to light social issues in an attempt to attract attention and find solutions. But I’m wondering if these CEO’s are only taking a stand for human rights, the environment, etc., because their desire is to be viewed positively by the public. Does acting in this manner give their revenue stream a boost? I’m certain that it doesn’t hurt. This makes me question the sincerity of their efforts.
You may be surprised at what you find. Here are 10 reasons why I think everyone should do this challenge.
