“If you cannot consider the dignity, value and worth of another HUMAN WITH WHOM YOU DISAGREE, you will find yourself quickly in a shouting match of egos. Someone will record it, broadcast it and put it on repeat.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS MUST DISAGREE AGREEABLY TO GROW INFLUENCE
“Never argue with an idiot. They’ll simply drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.” ~ Mark Twain
There are many ways to get your point across. There are many platforms, mediums and media tools today which did not exist when I began studying and teaching leadership and communication.
No one had yet imagined TikTok, Facebook, SnapChat, LinkedIn, et al. In fact, the “Internet” as we know it did not exist when I got out of the military and began my journey. I wrote the first 500 pages of ideas by hand, i still have the journals. The next 500 on a type writer. The next 500 on a computer with no internal memory - then along came word processing and 10TB back up hard drives.
I know, its like “walking in the snow to school, uphill, both ways.”
However, the ease with which people can communicate, express themselves, vent, discuss, debate and out right argue, GLOBALLY has changed the fervor of dialogue and the magnitude of disagreement.
As a leader, at any level, the words we use and choose are significant. The actions, attitude and behavior behind those words are equally impactful. With cameras everywhere, search histories and the “way back machine” accessible to any would be rival, its not just what you think and say TODAY which matters, but everything you have ever thought and then said aloud.
If you cannot consider the dignity, value and worth of another HUMAN WITH WHOM YOU DISAGREE, you will find yourself quickly in a shouting match of egos. Someone will record it, broadcast it and put it on repeat. Haters will DOX you and your reputation score along with your INFLUENCE will be toast in a matter of hours. EVEN IF THEY BAITED YOU into the argument... and they will.
If you want to LEAD in this world of global access media handled equally by pro’s and wannabes - guard your heart, your words and your actions at all times. OH and BE AUTHENTIC at the same time.

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.
