“In some cases other participants will study the rules just to use your ignorance of the rules to defeat you.“ J Loren Norris
“Do you know anyone personality who sold out their values, beliefs, self worth, integrity or even dignity for the sake of money alone?” J Loren Norris
“There will always be people who have nothing better to do than argue, create drama, distract and disrupt.” J Loren Norris
LEGACY MUST BE THE LEADERSHIP GOAL OF A GREAT DADS - BOTH IN MODELING AND JOURNALING
“The lessons we learn in life are not just for our learning. We are meant to pass them on and save the pain for future generations. We should be trusted to leave the map through the toughest times and to the promised land of success. First good dads model behavior worth emulating. Second they keep record of thoughts, successes, failures, mistakes and relationship journeys in the form of a journal. This is a simple yet effective way to leave a lasting legacy.” J Loren Norris

“The law of the picture: people do what people see is no more evident than in the role of Dad! Children who see a dad who is courteous, selfless, kind and filled with gratitude learn to emulate those values. A father who chooses to be absent, aloof, or oblivious is not fulfilling the role of DAD. Living the core values you wish for your children to benefit from demands awareness, attention and action. Be present. Be invested. Be intentional. That’s a good dad.” J Loren Norris..
CHILDREN ARE ALL UNIQUE IN GIFTS, TALENTS AND CHARACTER - A GOOD DAD LEARNS TO LEAD THE INDIVIDUAL NOT THE COLLECTIVE
CHILDREN ARE ALL UNIQUE IN GIFTS, TALENTS AND CHARACTER - A GOOD DAD LEARNS TO LEAD THE INDIVIDUAL NOT THE COLLECTIVE
“A dad who is a good leader will sacrifice time, energy and resources to become better adept at understanding his children. Knowing their individual personalities, quirks, gifts, talents and interests will go a long way in helping them to become successful at life. Two rules to apply: number one start early, number two give them definitive boundaries padded with love.” J Loren Norris
ANY MAN CAN BECOME A FATHER BUT I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU TO BE A DAD WHO LEADS WELL.
“I was raised as the only son of a single mom. The male role models in my life were a scarce resource limited both in availability and quality. I learned to be a more of a dad than a father through many years of research combined with trial and error. Dad is not an easy task. It should not be done alone. Yet it is one of the least supported roles of leadership around the world. In cultures where being a dad have been diminished, plethora of societal ills are on the rise. I double dog dare you to be a dad who leads well, not just a father or sire of children.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS RECOGNIZE A DEATH STAR WHEN THEY SEE ONE - METAPHORICALLY ANYWAY
“Mutually assured destruction is sometimes the only deterrent to tyranny. However, a leader willing to metaphorically apply the death star approach should be cautioned about the natural reaction of the poison pill, sabotage and revolt. Some team members will feel betrayed by authority and will inflict as much damage as possible before moving on. Good leaders are aware of this tension and the team members most likely to act.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS UNDERSTAND THE CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF REALITY AND READING THE ROOM WITH WISDOM
“It is cruel and unscrupulous to manipulate the meaning of a persons words when translating or repeating them. It is vile to do so with ill-intent. To interfere in communication by altering the facial expressions, intonation and emotional state is IMHO down right evil. But we have tools which many see as a game which does exactly that. Leaders must become masters of reality to deal with this new world of AR.” J Loren Norris
KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE BALL AND OTHER USELESS INSTRUCTIONS FOR LEADERS
“Instructions not properly translated are instructions not properly given. Not amount of emphatic articulation, passion or conviction in verbal delivery or instructions makes up the difference. SHOUTING via text or email will not more clearly convey unclear instructions. Leaders who fail to insure their expectations and instructions are clear, will be leaders who are just as frustrated as the people they lead.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS LOVE LANGUAGE LIKE LIZARDS LOVE LAYING IN THE SUN
“To be confused by language is nothing new. To misunderstand, misinterpret, misconstrue are all human reactions to complicated or emotionally charged conversations. Those who artfully misuse language are doing so with ill intent to confuse and manipulate. Leaders love language and the artful application of it to produce connection, clarity and consensus.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS CHOOSE WISELY WHERE THEY PLACE THEIR INVESTMENTS OF TIME, TALENT, TREASURE AND ATTENTION.
“Too many people waste time, talent, treasure and attention when they truly believe they are investing. If your investment turns on you and begins to decay in every area you thought it would return increase - it’s time to stop investing. If every $10 you spent with a specific organization gave $5 to someone preparing to do you harm how long would you keep giving them $10?” J Loren Norris
SUCCESS AS A LEADER DEMANDS SACRIFICE ON MANY LEVELS.
“My mentor John Maxwell says often ‘You’ve got to give up to go up!’ There is no level of leadership which does not demand sacrifice on the part of the leader. If you want more income, you’ll have to sacrifice time. If you want new strategic relationships, you must sacrifice long term unfruitful relationships. If you want to leave a legacy worthy of your successors you may well sacrifice your own happiness. A great leader must know the limits and be strong enough to resist the temptation to sacrifice core values for wealth and fame.” J Loren Norris
THE LEADERSHIP GAP OF GENERATIONS IS BECOMING A DAILY CONVERSATION
“Work ethic, professionalism, customer service, individual responsibility are all core values the American society was built upon. Sadly, these are not the driving values of today’s work force. These values are not just about earning a living, building a strong culture and the fabric of society. They are also the foundations of a healthy family and the freedom needed to sustain it. We need diligent leaders who are determined to pass these values like a baton to the next generation.” J Loren Norris
WHY EVERY LEADER NEEDS StoryPowerMasterclass.com
“The power of a story or collection of stories (aka narrative) possess incredible value in the war for cultural understanding. From revisionist history, to future casting, from vision drafting to social engineering - stories are the wind which direct the sails in the journey through time. Leaders who are not effective storytellers may be great managers or administrators but they will not be legacy influencers.” J Loren Norris
HUMANS GATHERING REQUIRE THE ART OF LEADERSHIP COMMUNICATION AT ITS HIGHEST LEVEL.
“The keyboard warrior, mouse jockey, microphone mouth piece who cannot look you in the eye and have the same conversation they do online is not a leader but a coward, not an influencer but a manipulator. The art of communicating face to face requires a diligently applied skill set, much grace and patience. The best comedians, the legacy orators and the leaders who make the greatest impact are equally or more persuasive when face to face than when they are in front of the mic and camera in isolation.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND PERMISSION TO SPEAK FREELY.
“Just because you have the right to free speech or permission to speak freely does not mean you are required to speak. If your emotions, opinions, ideologies are not widely accepted or conducive to productive relationships silence may be the better option. As the old saying goes, it’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW CONFUSION COMES BEFORE CHAOS
“Confusion can cancel a good sale, destroy a relationship, end a career and destroy a culture. I know that seems like a bold statement, but confusion is a tool used by many who know that chaos follows confusion and then anarchy follows chaos which almost always results in a form of tyranny. Leaders should be aware and astute enough to recognize third party attempts to ask confusing questions and be ready to maintain the narrative of core values and foundational ideologies.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW ONE MUST NOT LIVE OFF THE OPINION OF OTHERS.
“Many people fail to thrive because they allow the unqualified opinions of others to sway their belief about themselves. The stories we tell ourselves and the stories we others about ourselves shape what we believe to be true about us. The stories others tell about us - that’s our brand. As leaders we must manage the narrative at home, at work and at large for ourselves and our team.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW DIS IS A ROOT.
“I know this as a matter of reality: every action has a reaction. That goes for attitudes as well. If leaders do not draw the line and clearly monitor it, consequences will be drastic. Draw the line. Announce the consequences. Enforce the penalties. That’s one aspect of leadership many have shied away from.” J Loren Norris.
LEADERS KNOW TEACHING AN OLD DOGS NEW TRICKS IS DIFFICULT FOR A REASON
“If you desire to make radical, transformative change in a large group of people you must start with early adopters. Those are generally found among the youngest and most impressionable people because they are most open to new ideas, not yet set in their ways and willing to try almost anything when it feels right to them. The more seasoned among societies tend to trust their expertise and past experiences to validate what will work over their emotions or cultural pressures. Old dogs and new tricks? Not easy to do.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS WATCH THEIR FRIENDS MORE CLOSELY THAN STRANGERS TO PREVENT ENEMIES
“Friendships should be great investments of time, energy and emotion. The effort exerted to maintain a strong friendship will have a great return on investment when done well. Friends will watch your back, remain dedicated to your success, speak health to your romantic relationships and perhaps even work for you. The good leader will know where to draw the line between loyal friends and loyal employees.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW MORE THAN THEY SAY - BUT IT STILL WEIGHS HEAVY IN THEIR DECISION MAKING
“A good leader knows the power of a poker face! The ability to hear, see, know, understand and still keep your opinion a secret is a great tool for leadership. Not everything a leader thinks should be expressed. Not every stoic emotional response means IDK. When observing a team or a crowd, be willing to ask and answer questions of those who appear to be least engaged. They may very well know more than they say.” J Loren Norris.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
