#1 RULE OF SELLING IS “GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!” WHAT IF WHAT THEY WANT IS HARMFUL, DESTRUCTIVE OR DAMAGING?
“There is a way to control the outcome by controlling the options. The illusion of choice feels like freedom and most people think it is. Good leaders know how to offer true choice which is still pointing in a better, more hopeful and more free set of options.” J Loren Norris
“We need not agree to be friendly or even to be friends., We need instead to be respectful, loving, kind and considerate if we want to gain influence. How you choose to support the causes you believe in, will strongly reflect the depth and quality of your leadership skills.” J Loren Norris
“We have all experienced that ‘THAT’S NOT WHAT I SAID’ moment at some point in our life. . ‘Anything you say, can and will be used against you...’” J Loren Norris
“The depth of passion with which I am proud to be an American does not negate my awareness that my beloved nation is guilty of disturbing and hurtful ideologies, practices, and rhetoric. I am hopeful for a brighter future for people all over the world, if America prevails and continues to improve.” J Loren Norris
“You also have to know how and why you came to that conclusion. If you don’t know, your life and your convictions will be manipulated and controlled by others with a nefarious agenda. Freedom and independence are DHRB’s and are also guarded by DHRB’s.” J Loren Norris
“No one appreciates a false accusation except the accuser. Yet, false accusations and allegations are often more damaging than the truth. We need to engage in a thoughtful conversation about this phenomenon and how to address it as the volume of baseless accusations go unchecked.” J Loren Norris
“Leaders need to understand when the passion of the argument is not the point of the argument, Often the primary thing discussed is the symptom not the root of the argument, Leaders need to know when to change the conversation and focus on the real issue.” J Loren Norris
“Opportunities to lead are often hidden not behind the title, the job description, the pay raise, the invitation to take the stage, but in the casual daily relationships. Remember to lead when you a moment to make an influential impact in the life of someone near you.” J Loren Norris
raw audio IS IT SELF HELP AND SELF EMPOWERMENT OR SOMETHING ELSE? BRAINWASHED? MANIPULATED? CULT-LIKE?
“Awareness and trust are the key difference between being helped and being had.”
“The best laid plans of mice and men... Every battle plan is good until fifteen minutes after conflict with the enemy, Every leader faces the challenge of presenting a plan, strategy or new direction and dealing with the opposition which is inevitable. Good leaders consider the optics, perceptions, intentions and biases of the end user as well as the implementers of the plan before presenting it for final application.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW WHEN THEY ARE BEING DECEIVED - PLAYED - TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF AND HOW TO REDIRECT THE EFFORT.
“Leaders don’t get to be leaders because they are clueless. When you know this, you know the corruption which occurs on their watch was either more than they could handle or something they were complicit in. Leaders have the responsibility to expose, dismantle and dispose of injustice, deceit, and unethical behavior,” J Loren Norris
ONE OF THE GREATEST FREEDOMS IN HUMAN HISTORY IS THE FREEDOM TO BE WRONG AND DISCOVER IT ON YOUR OWN.
“I was wrong. I stand corrected. I am sorry. These are hard words to say. The power of these words in the mouth of a leader are inestimable. The ability to admit wrong is second in value only to the FREEDOM TO BE WRONG. When every decision in your life is made for you, you are not free. I would prefer to STAND CORRECTED than to kneel to suppression.” J Loren Norris
“Work is about meaning, purpose, value and appreciation. Yes, its nice to get paid, but the real value is in the power to build self esteem and to see the fruits of serious labor. Leaders offer the real opportunity behind work, not just the money which might come from it.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS WILL LEAVE BEHIND MORE THAN IDEAS, BOOKS, LIBRARIES AND MONEY! WHAT WILL YOU BE REMEMBERED FOR? #leadingleaderspodcast 10-8-20
“To be memorable leader, you must be intentional about the impressions you make on total strangers who can do nothing to improve your standing. It is altogether possible to be gone but not forgotten. It is also possible to be forgotten before you’re gone.” J Loren Norris
“If you could choose your way of life, would that make you vote? If you could choose the country or type of country you. live in, would that make you vote? If you could simply believe what the different political parties tell you about the future they have in mind for YOUR LIFE, would that make you vote?” All of these are BETTER REASONS to vote than the agreement with or approval of a particular personality.” J Loren Norris
“The energy you bring to life is often the energy you get from life. Anxiety, depression, frustration, anger, rage all have a unique energy signature. Peace, calm, unity, harmony also have a signature, a frequency and a direct relationship to how you lead. Your emotional state and your ability to experience harmony are synonymous. Guard your energy well.” J Loren Norris
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO CUSTOMER SERVICE, EMPLOYEE DILIGENCE, LOYALTY TO THE BUSINESS? #leadingleaderspodcast 10-5-20
“The bottom line of your business is directly tied to the quality of your leadership team. Customer service failure is a LEADERSHIP failure. Managers who do not possess the leadership skills to delegate authority, train proper, applicable jobs skills and manage employee attitudes will see a downturn in customer service and eventually in business.” J Loren Norris
“As a leader you must know the distinguishing mark between influence and manipulation is measured by intent. Who will be better for this choice or change of course? Whose life benefits most? If its the leader and the leader alone, that is manipulation not just influence.” J Loren Norris
“Strategies and tactics are different. When leaders are so focused on the goal or strategies that the lose sight for the purpose of their tactics, missteps are inevitable. Focus on mission is critical but must not become myopic.” 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.
