What Do You Make?

0

So, I want to ask you a simple question, “What do you make?” Don’t be shy. You can tell me… I know it’s not a question that we typically ask, or that we may even feel comfortable asking people – it’s a little bit rude isn’t it? Well I think it’s time to change all of that. I think it’s …

Is your net worth greater than your self-worth?

0

I have a very good friend who went through a powerful process a number of years ago in regard to his self-worth.  He and his father owned a very successful agricultural business – a massive farm.  They were approached by a buyer and offered a ridiculous amount of money to sell.  After some degree of consideration they decided to cash …

Do you endure people, or endear people?

I sat there in the restaurant an arm’s length from their breakfast table watching the entire encounter transpire. I was encouraged. I was appalled. One got it. One didn’t. Randy Carlyle got it.

I got together for dinner with a very good buddy of mine recently. I have known this man for over 30 years, and we have experienced a lot of life together. As we ate dinner on the outdoor patio of an ocean side restaurant the sun began setting and cast a beautifully brilliant orange glow across the sky. “Oh man, …

Good Leaders Practice Public Nakedness

Hold on, keep an open mind – stay with me. Before you write me off as some kind of a whacked-out leadership consultant, let me explain… I was speaking at a 2 day event with some friends in attendance I hadn’t seen for years. At lunch time I had the opportunity to speak with some of these people and catch …

Is Bigger Really Better?

What do you think, is bigger better? It certainly seems that many people think so. Most business leaders that I have consulted with indicate that their objective is to grow their business – to make it bigger. The implied understanding is that if it is bigger, then it is better. Our culture seems to have bought into this philosophy as …

Have you ever been in a social setting of some sort – perhaps a business presentation or meeting, a concert, a luncheon, a speech or the like – where you were itching to clap but no one else did, so you paused until everyone else started clapping? Or, have you been in a similar social setting where clearly one person …
