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 NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A SIMPLE CONVERSATION
“One of the most frustrating aspects of human relationships rest in feeling like you have not been heard. No one enjoys the position of voicelessness. Leaders know that one of the wisest, if not the most humbling action they can take is taking the time to have a simple conversation with those they lead.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW THE POWER OF A GENUINE MASTERMIND TO TRANSFORM THEIR TEAMS AND PLANS.Read Now
LEADERS KNOW THE POWER OF A GENUINE MASTERMIND TO TRANSFORM THEIR TEAMS AND PLANS.
“Your best thought could be a better thought. Your best idea could be a better idea. The greatest thing on your mind could be improved by a mastermind. When you bathe your ideas in the thoughts and opinions of others you take a great risk. However, allowing others to apply friction to your ideas is like putting a gem stone in a tumbler. The rough edges are rubbed off and what comes out is a whole different quality of stone. That’s what a genuine mastermind accomplishes.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS RECOGNIZE A DEATH STAR WHEN THEY SEE ONE - METAPHORICALLY ANYWAYRead Now
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

“AS WE WITNESS A CULTURAL REVOLUTION LEADERS STAND OUT BECAUSE THEY CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY IN MANY WAYS.”
”Contributing to society in a meaningful way delivers a sense of purpose to every human alive. The need to be a part of something bigger, grander, more significant than ourselves is a natural part of our existence. IMHO The cultural shift away from meaningful work, hard work and self sufficiency has marred the fabric of our American ethos…” J Loren Norris

LEADERSHIP CAN BE DESTROYED BY A BLOCKED VISION. WHATS THE OBSTACLE IN YOUR LINE OF SIGHT?
“Blind spots, obstacles and blinders may have similar effect, but in the life of a leader they are significantly different. Blinders help us to focus by directing attention and minimizing distractions. Blind spots ...” 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 KNOW VALUES ARE PRICELESS - MEANING THEY SHOULD NOT BE FOR SALE AT ANY PRICERead Now
LEADERS KNOW VALUES ARE PRICELESS - MEANING THEY SHOULD NOT BE FOR SALE AT ANY PRICE
”The immeasurable worth of deeply held and strongly rooted values is undeniable. Unfortunately such values and those who hold to them are becoming more rare every day. Leaders know their values are essential to leading with legacy. They also know their values are priced out of the market. They are worth more than any pay raise, vacation, career promotion, other social incentives or political pressure. In short, leaders who know their values cannot be bought.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW LIFE IS A SERIES OF MOMENTS TO BE LIVED INTENTIONALLY NOT JUST INTUITIVELYRead Now
LEADERS KNOW LIFE IS A SERIES OF MOMENTS TO BE LIVED INTENTIONALLY NOT JUST INTUITIVELY
”Life is too short to miss the moments which define us. Moments will come and go naturally. We will engage in most of them intuitively. To get the most of life, however, we must engage in every moment intentionally. Look for moments and even opportunities to create a moment. Make note, take photos, start a journal entry, but never let a moment slip by without savoring and recording it.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW LIFE IS NUANCED AND NUANCE CAN BE USED NEFARIOUSLY
”Call it shading, facets, partial representation or any other name you like. Nuance is another word for conveying something other than the whole truth. Employees do it. Politicians do it. Toddlers do it. Attorneys do it. You have likely done it, I know I have. Good leaders understand the power and purpose of nuance all the while aware of its dangers. Be alert. Look closely, listen closer and always ask, what’s the whole, entire, complete truth.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS MUST BE ENCOURAGERS OF DREAMERS TO INSPIRE THE INNOVATION OF FUTURE HOPERead Now
LEADERS MUST BE ENCOURAGERS OF DREAMERS TO INSPIRE THE INNOVATION OF FUTURE HOPE
“If your ego as a leader is too fragile to encourage the dreamers you lead, then its time to reevaluate your ego and self worth. If you are concerned about promoting a dreamer into their own dreams of entrepreneurship and not being able to replace them, consider this: your leadership thus far has empowered them to become who they are. You can repeat the process to cultivate another superstar and you must. The world needs all of the confident dreamers we can muster. If your leader is squelching your dreams, holding you back and not allowing you to imagine, to soar, to succeed, they have disqualified themselves from leading you.” J loren Norris
FREE SPEECH IS MEANT TO BE FREE OF SUPRESSION NOT FREE OF CONSEQUENCES AND LEADERS MUST KNOW AND APPLY THE DIFFERENCERead Now
FREE SPEECH IS MEANT TO BE FREE OF SUPRESSION NOT FREE OF CONSEQUENCES AND LEADERS MUST KNOW AND APPLY THE DIFFERENCE
”You are free to say whatever you feel compelled to say. You are not free from the consequences of the reactions your words inspire. As a leader, you must allow your team the right to speak freely. You must also help them to understand the consequences not only of what was actually said, but the thoughts, feelings and ideas which leads to such speech.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE VERACITY OF CURRENCY DO NOT STUDY FAKES
“Study the genuine article and not the litany of fakes if you want to get past the deception and get closer to the truth. Leaders who live and thrive on the glitz and glamor of the spotlight and not the transformation of their people, those are the counterfeit. Leaders who do the right thing when no one is looking and nothing is to be gained, those are the genuine article, study them, follow them.” 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 WHO THRIVE ON POWER ALONE ARE TYRANTS NOT LEADERS.
“Sometimes the action you see is not what you should be cautious about. It’s not the struggle getting the most attention, the fight turning all the heads, the chaos stopping traffic which is reshaping society. Like a good ‘fight promoter’ the real game is happening in the back room between the power players and power brokers and they really don’t care who survives the scuffle… as long as they remain in power by provoking the scuffle. If you only deal in power, you are a tyrant and not a leader.” J Loren Norris

LEADERSHIP DEMANDS AN AMPLE REPLY.
“Most bullies are bullied themselves. Most people who are bullied live in fear, intimidation, frustration and often humiliation. Bullying behavior doesn’t stop in middle school or high school. The attitude of bullying is pervasive in big business, politics, world leaders and the modern versions of town square as carried out by mob rule. The antidote to bullying at every level is the same. Humility. Humility is generally discovered behind ample reply. Leadership demands that ample reply.” 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
LEADERS LIVE THEIR BELIEF SYSTEM JUST LIKE EVERY HUMAN ON EARTH
“Living what you say you believe versus living what you actually believe might appear to be a distinction without a difference. It is not. Most people live by deeply held beliefs which are not consistent with their spoken beliefs. They act in ways which defy their expressed values. Because their subconscious beliefs drive their actions, who they demonstrate they are is not who they say they are.” 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.
