Unseen Leadership

I have been reading Mentor Leadership by Tony Dungy, and I have not read anything I disagree with. Dungy puts a strong emphasis on building relationships and leading through service. He also discusses the importance of investing time in those we lead. However, as I was reading, there was a part that made me considerContinue reading “Unseen Leadership”

Are You Worth Imitating?

The older I get, the more aware I have become of the responsibilities I have been given as I age. The past two years have taught me more than I thought possible. I know many are sick and tired of Covid, no pun intended, but for me, I have seen it as an opportunity toContinue reading “Are You Worth Imitating?”

Be A Person Of Your Word

“Be true to your work, your word, and your friends.” ~Henry David Thoreau~ Have you ever asked a friend for help, had them commit, and then at the last minute make an excuse for not showing up, or maybe a friend asked you for a favor and then took advantage of your time and willingness toContinue reading “Be A Person Of Your Word”

Stop Sacrificing The Truth

It seems that our society has decided to disregard most forms of truth. Instead of standing for what is right and what is true, society will manipulate the truth to cater to the emotions and feelings of others. The more we choose to sacrifice the truth for others feelings and emotions, the more we approveContinue reading “Stop Sacrificing The Truth”

Stop Validating Every “Feeling”

We live in a culture where whatever we feel must be right. We are told to validate others feelings and accept people for who they are. We are called haters, phobics, and many other lovely names when we choose to stand for truth rather than fiction. Society demonizes anyone who speaks truth these days, whichContinue reading “Stop Validating Every “Feeling””

Fatherhood

In honor of Father’s Day, I wanted to take a moment and express my heart about the most important leadership role a man can hold. Fathers are a critical component to the mental, emotional, and spiritual health of their children. Fatherhood is not a title or a position that should be taken lightly. It isContinue reading “Fatherhood”

Service and Humility Are Not Weak Leadership Qualities

I believe that leadership is about serving others while staying humble. Some may think this type of leadership is weak leadership. To that I say, if you consider humility and service a form of weakness, YOU are the problem. It takes more strength and self control to lead with humility and acts of service thanContinue reading “Service and Humility Are Not Weak Leadership Qualities”

Don’t Lead With Your Ego

There are many things that can make a leader fail at being a leader, but the worst of them all is when a leader leads with their ego. The ego is a catalyst for many problems, and when we choose to lead with our ego, we choose to miss the purpose and meaning of trueContinue reading “Don’t Lead With Your Ego”

Strong Character

American novelist, G. Michael Hopf, once wrote, “Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times.” There is much truth in this quote. However, I want to add something: “Hard times create men of character, men of character create good times, good timesContinue reading “Strong Character”

Leading With Resilience

Why do we allow people to hold power over us? Why do we care so much what people think and say about us? The more we give up our own power to those who are toxic, degrading, and ignorant, the more we give ourselves away. People who force you to think or accept ideologies thatContinue reading “Leading With Resilience”
