Too long in my life… I failed to take the proper action. My signature story starts out as the product of a single-parent home of humble means. I have little guidance in life and the influence I soak in isn’t exactly great. I eventually get fired from High School and was told as I was leaving “A kid like you will never amount to anything”.
It took a long time to stop going out of my way to prove him right. But even as I found myself excelling at employment as a workaholic, gaining rungs of the ladder… I still wasn’t leading. I was crushing. I was pushing and driving myself to success at all costs, and alienating just about everyone around me.
This became evident in the Automotive industry as I drove the numbers. Push, push, push… but when the Customer Satisfaction Index scores came in, I wasn’t where I thought I should be. I did the normal thing – blamed those idiot customers and lazy co-workers. Heaven forbid it should be my fault?!?!
This led to an internally driven pursuit of leadership training…
I began to soak up books. Stephen Covey, John C. Maxwell, Joel Osteen, L. Ron Hubbard, Bible, Qur’an, Tony Robbins, Russel Brunson, and Pedro Adao. For business, I jumped into Kevin Cope and Jeffrey Gitomer. All of this study and conversations with peers that study this topic began to lead me down a different path. Soon I was writing the book “Action Leadership From the Edge” and focusing on a new perspective on Leadership training.
Glad you could make it.
