Personal Growth Resources
Effective leaders are focused on continuing improvement by constantly working on their personal skills development. Here are some of my tools for your review.
“We should not judge people by their peak of excellence, but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.” ― Henry Ward Beecher
Leaders Are Constantly Working on Skills
For Nonprofit Leaders:
1) Nonprofit Performance Magazine
For the first time ever, nonprofit leaders have a leadership magazine dedicated to the needs of the social benefit sector…we are pleased to introduce Nonprofit Performance Magazine, the resource designed specifically for the nonprofit leader. Each quarter, this magazine will feature cutting-edge thinking from leaders in the fields of leadership, organizational culture, and nonprofit management, and special guest features. This magazine extends the work of the SynerVision Leadership Foundation and JMI, Inc., the creator of Professional Performance Magazine since 1989, by focusing on best practices, strategic thinking, and a collaborative mindset in creating a new culture of success for nonprofits.
I have been working in the church for over 40 years, and have also been working with nonprofit (social benefit) organizations for over 30 years as an outside resource. There are recurring issues that present challenges to leaders in this arena, so I decided to launch a magazine to bring the best thinking from the most progressive leaders. The stories are timeless, so you’ll want to claim every issue and hang on to them for future reference.

Conducting Power-Packed Meetings
The biggest challenge for many leaders is the BORING, UNPRODUCTIVE MEETING!
I have helped hundreds of people grow their ideas, their dreams, into reality and build high-performance teams by learning how to conduct power-packed meetings.
The problem is that most people want to do things like they have done them before: badly. They don’t know any other way to approach decisions.
This article and accompanying video will reveal the following:
- Why the agenda is the enemy of productivity in meetings – and what works far, far better.
- Templates for planning awesome meetings!
- How to construct from the desired outcomes, backwards, to ensure engaged and productive team interaction that ensures success.
- Find secrets for managing time, managing group participation, keeping the team focused and on track and, finally, how to keep anyone from hijacking the meeting with a personal agenda.
