Don’t Take Your Perception For Granted

Perception vs Reality

There’s an old saying that “Perception is Reality”. Perception is not reality but admittedly, perception can be someone’s reality. That’s because perception has an influence on how we see reality.

Where are the Leaders

Where are the Leaders

Becoming a leader isn’t any different than becoming a plumber, lawyer, doctor, etc. One has to make a conscious decision to become a leader.

Do Companies Have Leadership Positions?

Have you ever seen an opening at a company for leadership positions? I’ve seen openings for a supervisor, manager, director, etc. but never an opening for a leader. Even in sports, there are openings for a wide range of coaches from a position coach to the head coach. But once again, I’ve never heard of […]

Leadership For Ourselves

Family Leader

Some of us think of leadership in terms of “that’s for somebody else…not me”. It’s easy for some of us to give our leadership abilities to others without even realizing it. Leadership comes in a variety of ways. If you are a parent, have a management position or are self-employed you are a leader in […]
