Leadership is continual growth from the inside out. Helping people believe in themselves and the development of self confidence.
There’s little hope for know-it-all leaders. Too many leaders flap their tongues while their ears nap and their brains slumber.
When was the last time you asked, “Tell me what you think?” Perhaps, by the time you’re done telling what you think, there’s no time for asking what they think.
Your open mouth closes the mouths of others.
Self-development is pivotal to leadership success. Developing you develops your organization. I’m not talking about lazy indulgence; sitting under a tree and finding yourself. I’m talking about lifelong learning that enhances leadership.
Know-it-alls talk. Learn-it-alls listen.
- *Judge slowly.
- Live transparently.

- Succeed gracefully.
- Fail humbly.
- Follow willingly.
- Reject stagnation. Learn-it-alls passionately pursue point “B.” Point “A” is a pit stop not a destination.
- Welcome in rather than push away.
- Embrace old values and pursue new methods.
