Have You Been Taught to Be a Victim?

 

This video will disrupt the minds of most people.  Throughout history, we have been taught to believe in many things that later proved to be incorrect.  In this video, I talk about how we are taught to be helpless, victims.  While it is most likely not the intentional, the belief stops people from really understanding self.  Many of you may find yourself experiencing cognitive dissonance while listening to this.

Is There an Effective Plan to Develop Leaders of the Future?

 

There is an old debate. People question whether leaders are born or made. The experts seems to believe leaders are made.

Do You Have the Power of a Disruptive Leader?

 

Many people believe being a boss is all about telling others what to do.  From another perspective, some of the most effective leaders give their people huge problems to solve.  The leader steps back and allows staff and management figure it out.  While this can be disruptive, it is a powerful path to breakthroughs.  


The trick to this method is being able to navigate self and others through chaos and uncertainty.  Those are two aspects of life that most want to avoid.  Yet, the breakthrough is almost always on the other side of a breakdown.  Therefore, you must be able to lead others through the breakdown.  


What are your thoughts?  How do you lead people into a breakthrough?

Do Toxic People Know They Are Toxic?

 

The word toxic has become a popular part of US culture.  We call men toxic for being masculine.  Women are toxic for being feminine.  Soon we will call dogs toxic for barking.  In the US, we have become so obsessed with accusing others of being toxic that some people are afraid to be themselves in public.  Isn't that
