LEADERS MEASURE EFFECTIVENESS BY RESULTS NOT INTENTION - THEY MEASURE TEAM ALIGNMENT BY INTENTION.Read Now
“Leaders must distinguish incompetence from ignorance when measuring the effectiveness of a team member. A leader must also distinguish incompetence from ill-intent when measuring team alignment. Ill-intent has the potential to become insubordination and even sabotage.” J Loren Norris
“If you are a leader and uncomfortable with sacrifice, you won’t lead long. Leadership is costly. Sacrifice is squarely in the path to long lasting influence. If you have something you are not willing to give up, you will sacrifice other things to keep it. If you hold fast to family, you may sacrifice promotions and vice versa.” J Loren Norris
You need long term, get in the weeds, hard conversation, dig into personal beliefs, establish core values, develop and strategize your vision, one to one coaching for every current and future leader in your organization. You need a leadership coach with the moxie to say, “That sounds good, but what if you’re wrong?”” J Loren Norris
LEADERSHIP - ITS NOT JUST OLD SCHOOL, ITS FOUNDATIONAL TO OPERATE WITH PRINCIPLES, MORAL VALUES AND INTEGRITY.Read Now
“Today’s TikTok is yesterday’s Readers Digest or Our DaIly Bread. Brief, impactful, mindset altering seeds for thought to shape the minds of a generation. Those characteristics, those values, those morals must be passed from generation to generation by leaders who have influence.” J Loren Norris.
LEADERS BUILD A FOUNDATION FOR A LASTING LEGACY WITH CORE VALUES: INTEGRITY IS ONE INGREDIENTRead Now
“Someone once said, ‘Integrity is what you do when no one is watching.’ I don’t disagree, but let me add this. Integrity is best expressed when your actions, outcomes and previously announced intentions line up. To declare what you believe or intend to do and do something other than that is a lack of integrity which will erode the foundation of your legacy.” J Loren Norris
“If your foundation is built on a landfill you will face a constant decay, foul smells and constantly shifting ground. If you want a foundation worth building on, you need a trustworthy substance for building material. I prefer the Bible as a substance to build on.” J Loren Norris
“Look, no one builds anything of significance without first digging down deep in their own dirt to find the bedrock. No one builds anything of significance without getting a little dirt on them. The foundation of any team, relationship or organization is the deeply held core beliefs of the leader. This is the reason “old fashioned ideas” are still around. They are bedrock.” J Loren Norris
“There was a time when I might have considered myself fearless. Taking on any challenge, dare or obstacle as if I had nothing to lose. Jumping off the roof of the house onto hard ground, racing a motorcycle down the highway without a helmet, replying with sarcasm to someone I should not. Today, I am much more cautious….” J Loren Norris
ON THE 20th anniversary of 9-11 - we must remember the America which once was.Read Now
ON THE 20th anniversary of 9-11 - we must remember the America which once was.
Those who claimed responsibility for the attack have also been very clear and verbal about their desire for the absolute demise of the values, reasons and practices which made America the greatest nation on earth thus far.
We are not the First Nation to be a target for annihilation based on the values and beliefs we hold to be self evident.
If you want to eat the sheep, you must distract or destroy the sheep dog!
We must remember who we are, whose we are and why we are here. We may not see a “war” as we have seen in the past, remember “the pen is mightier than the sword.” If we be imprisoned be administrative fiat, we will be incapable of defending ourselves on a larger scale.
“Alongside Babylon’s rivers we sat on the banks; we cried and cried, remembering the good old days in Zion. Alongside the quaking aspens we stacked our unplayed harps; That’s where our captors demanded songs, sarcastic and mocking: “Sing us a happy Zion song!” Oh, how could we ever sing God’s song in this wasteland? If I ever forget you, Jerusalem, let my fingers wither and fall off like leaves. Let my tongue swell and turn black if I fail to remember you, If I fail, O dear Jerusalem, to honor you as my greatest.
God, remember those Edomites, and remember the ruin of Jerusalem, That day they yelled out, “Wreck it, smash it to bits!” And you, Babylonians—ravagers! A reward to whoever gets back at you for all you’ve done to us; Yes, a reward to the one who grabs your babies and smashes their heads on the rocks!”
Psalm 137:1-9 MSG

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.
