Leadership is a general topic that people understand in different ways; in fact people have contrasting and conflicting perceptions of how leaders should behave.
Choices are very important in leadership. Sometimes, paralyzed by the gravity of the choice, leaders stall and can’t decide. Not making a choice is certainly a choice.
Leaders lead. The question is…do we lead with our brains or with our hearts? The transformational leader models what they want reflected in the culture.
Strive for excellence everything in order to build the highest performing culture. The leader sets te standard and the team follows.
We hear lots of noise in conversations and in the media about striving for equality. That’s not it. There’s a better way.
When a leader defines the vision and then sets specific goals to achieve that vision, it’s important to leave a place for team members to create their strategies.
On the pathway to success, there are many opportunities to quit – don’t quit. Focus on the benefit, and not on the problem.
I lead teams. I lead meetings. I teach leaders to lead. I can see the end result, because I have defined goals clearly.

It might be time to reframe those obstacles and attempt to define a way forward. Those obstacles can become opportunities if you can rethink strategy.
