Excerpt on Leadership From My Book
5 Secrets of a Phenomenal Business...
Leadership is effectively communicating your vision, mission, and purpose. Phenomenal Leadership creates a meaningful community where the vision, mission, and purpose is lived out. A Phenomenal Leadership System is a group of working parts that duplicates results consistently.
One of the biggest reasons small business owners remain prisoners of their own making is the lack of leadership skill. The owners of the business are convinced that no one is as capable as they are and are convinced they can’t find “good” people.
I know how they feel. I have endured just about every employee night- mare you can imagine. I’ve had employees steal money from me, take my clients, and fail to show up for work leaving me to do the work all alone. And I know what it’s like to feel like you can’t find good people...
One sunny afternoon some years ago, my staff and I noticed a low-rider, gangster type vehicle sitting in our parking lot for quite a while. The two front doors were swung open and pot smoke billowed out of the car. There were two men in the car and about the time I was going to call the police, one of them got out of the car and began to make his way to our front door.
I was standing next to the phone in case I needed to call 911. Is he going to rob us? I wondered. What could he possibly want from us? He was wearing flip flops, cut-off blue jeans, a yellow tank top, and had a big tattoo on his arm. He didn’t bother to take off his sunglasses as he stepped inside.
“Ya’ll hirin’?” he asked.
You’re kidding! I’m thinking to myself. I replied with something that is not exactly legal but seemed appropriate at the time. “We do require a drug test, is that going to be a problem?”
“Dat gon’ be today?” he asked. In other words...if you give me 24 hours, maybe I’ll pass it!
So I know it can be tough out there for employers to find employees. But I learned how to attract the best people, how to lead them, and most importantly have created a phenomenal leadership system that helps me attract, acquire, and train the very best people.
And you can too. You don’t have to be held hostage by underperforming employees, bad attitudes, and downright insubordination. But in order to turn that around, you’ve got to become an effective leader. You’ve got to develop your leadership skill. The good news is that anyone can become an effective leader. It’s a skill. And the better news, I mean phenomenal news is that you can develop a phenomenal leadership system. Your employees can be your greatest asset or your biggest nightmare. And that depends completely and solely on your leadership skill.
Dear Friend and Fellow Business Owner,
I had the pleasure this year to be personally mentored by John Maxwell, the #1 Leadership Expert in the World. John says "everything rises and falls on leadership..." and I know how hard it can be to find, hire and keep good people.
Leadership is effectively communicating your vision. Phenomenal leadership inspires your team to implement so your can reach your dream.
Your team can be your biggest nightmare or your greatest asset. And it all goes back to your Leadership System.
Hope to shake your hand at the event and help you build your Phenomenal Leadership System.
