One of the three hungers we all face in our life is to know that our life matters ... that somehow we have made a dent in the universe. You may not yet know how you want to make a dent ... You may not even know whether that dent is going to be huge or small... But one thing is for sure... You made it to this website because you are a leader who is looking for the tools to help your journey be one that is spectacular.
And, here's something I'd like to make very clear. You are, (or can be), a leader regardless of whether you have anyone reporting to you. Some of the most influential and inspiring people I've ever worked with, never had a person report to them. Yet, they have a passion for what they are doing and a dream of making something better and they galvanize others to walk with them on their journey.
Leadership is far more about influence, passion and vision ...than it is about chain of command!
Whether you like it or not, to a great extent the work that you do, defines you as a human being. On grand and small scales, the way you interact with others, the products and services you are a part of delivering, all roll together to become a part of the legacy that you leave behind.
Therefore, the resources on this site, are dedicated to helping you define who you are as a leader, and to help you, help the people you work with to have a work experience which ignites the very best in them. That helps them to feel that they are part of something, that is about more than, just the money. That they are proud and delighted to be a part of your team.
When people are at their best ... they shine ... the business shines .... and you shine!
What gives me the right to be your online leadership coach? Well, you can take a quick peek at the coaching page, where I let you know about coaching and a few successes some of my clients have had. Or, you could take a look at my business profile page - (which is the standard 'corporate' blurb) - or you can take a look at the personal 'about me' page.
Any one of these three pages will give you a pretty good insight into why I'm confident enough to create a site that 'bangs on' about leadership and making a dent.
When you take action, and apply the tips and techniques you'll discover on this site, you'll inspire and influence others with more energy and passion than you ever thought possible. I can make that promise because of my own experience, and from the results I've seen my coaching clients get, by applying what I've shared with them.
