All leaders choose a public persona.
Most are humble people with a service centric mindset.
I put my experience on display because Im passionate that leadership skills are scalable. Our posts are not superficial.
Like many of you, I am challenge by the many faces of mindset. They present themselves in many forms.
I like to call these “the 4 mini-me’s” and they manifest themselves in different ways.
👺The 1st is the “Doubtful Devil”. He’s always at the ready to challenge my mindset. Frequently presenting arguments to challenge my qualifications.
🕺The 2nd is the “Distracted Daydreamer”. He’s the silent one. Sending reminders to relax, take it easy, and enjoy some social media distractions. Trying to Pull me out of focus and into comfort.
🆕The 3rd is the most fun. The “Determined Daredevil”. He encourages me to try new things, puts me in uncomfortable situations and embraces failure with a winners mindset. Fueling my insatiable desire for growth!
🎯The 4th is my favorite, “Boundless Believer”. He’s my superpower. Giving me the courage, strength, and limitless energy to contribute and to multiply leadership.
Your responsibility is to manage your mini-me’s. To own the stories they tell you and to drown out the dissension!
Keep moving forward. 🚶
We are at the crossroads of resistance and persistence. The winner is the mind that grabs the steering wheel and presses on the gas!
👊🏼Embrace the grind.
😉Enjoy the journey.
Credibility, relationships, followed by focusing on logical work.
Greek Philosphy of influence:
🏦Ethos: is your personal credibility — how people view you, whether they believe what you say.
😑Pathos: is about feelings and relationships. It’s being emotionally in tune with others and their needs.
🤓Logos: is about logic — whether you are rational in the work you do with people.

Come join us as we discuss the importance of connecting teams with data.
Our goals are to provide practical applications that are scalable, manageable, and measured.
You could feel the mood change in the as the room became more fidgety. It started as a low grumble and rippled as the murmurs of displeasure rose.
The data was an accurate depiction of the results. There was discomfort in the lack of knowledge that the culture didn’t meet the metrics.
A swell of gamesmanship permeated the room. The celebration had become a contest of egos.
👉🏻The gap in performance expectations occur when the daily activities aren’t conducive to the mission.
🚧 Roadblocks occur when the internal communications differ from the external communications.
🗣️ Part of the skill is to lead people in a way that they enthusiastically connect to the vision. Creating an environment where individuals thrive and contribute meaningfully.
🔁 Commitment is the straight line connection in the competency-confidence loop.
Come join us on this discussion as we discuss the importance of authentic leadership.
Maybe you’re like me? I have failed so many times, missed so many key opportunities to be a better leader, and along the path – I have allowed my emotions to lead my reaction.
Riding on the edge of real achievement. So tightly bound to the vision that I could see it, touch it, and feel it.
Early on in my leadership development I’d inadvertently sabotage progress. Reasoning with myself that I wasn’t smart enough, strong enough, resilient enough.
This limiting mindset had handcuffed me to a reality…I didn’t love.
