ALL TRIANGLES ARE SHAPES. NOT ALL SHAPES ARE TRIANGLES. ALL LEADERS ARE INFLUENCERS. NOT ALL INFLUENCERS ARE LEADERS.Read Now
“Just because an influencer has millions of followers and millions of downloads does not imply they are an effective and genuine leader. Committing yourself to lead with influence not to seek the fame of being an influencer is hard work with a more desirable payoff than fame alone.” J Loren Norris
COLLECTIVISM VS TEAMWORK: AS A LEADER DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE OR WHYT IT MATTERS?Read Now
”A society, team, organization or family must recognize and respect the needs of each of its members equally in order to function with any sense of justice or modicum of fairness. To down play, diminish or ignore anyone’s needs compared to another is inequity. As a team leader, the variance of social, mental, financial investment made in various team members is not related to their inherent value as humans, but to the value of their contribution to a desired outcome.” J Loren Norris
YOU CANNOT MANAGE WHAT YOU DO NOT MEASURE. JOURNALING IS OF LITTLE VALUERead Now
“If you are only tracking your progress without tracking your process, you are managing only the results and not the attitudes, actions and behaviors which brought the results. If you are researching, learning, studying, practicing progressing, but keeping no record of it, HOW DO YOU KNOW you’re progressing?” J Loren Norris
Leaders need a macro vision for understanding and a micro vision for granular applicationRead Now
“I CONSIDER IT EQUALLY VILE TO A RACIAL SLUR. DEROGATORY REMARKS ABOUT SEXUAL ORIENTATION OR RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION. If the best counter you have to a thought I share is to ridicule and call names, then your limited inability to converse honestly and intelligently exposes itself.” J Loren Norris
“Too many leaders view their employee through the same lenses parents use to see no flaws in their own children. If it seems like everything is going well and you can spot no issues, perhaps its time for a 360 evaluation with people who will tell the leaders the truth.” J Loren Norris
DO YOU EVEN JOURNAL BRO?Read Now
“I type faster with my thumbs than with my keyboard and I get hand cramps when I write too much. But neuroscience data tells us we better remember notes taken by hand. As a part of my legacy, these notes, unless physically stolen or destroyed cannot be hacked.“ J Loren Norris

IF YOU PIVOTED IN 2020, IS IT TIME TO DRIBBLE, PASS, OR FIND A NEW GAME PLAN LEADING IN 2021?Read Now
“It’s real easy to sling around the phrase ‘pivot’ to describe how leaders might address change. The real issue is having a vision so well defined that a change in game plan, tactics and strategies doesn’t mean a crushing of the vision or a dismantling of the organization. Nor does it mean spinning in circles making no progress. “ J Loren Norris
WHAT IS THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN TRUTH AND FACT? WHO DECIDES? WHAT DOES IT MATTER?Read Now
“Look it’s easy to entertain, to distract and to strive to gain the attention of the masses. Ok it’s not easy but it’s popular and requires gadgets and a willingness to do whatever gets the most views. Creating content that brings insight, influence and transformative impact requires more effort and may not make you wealthy but it’s well worth the effort.” J Loren Norris
JUSTICE IS ONE ROLE OF LEADERSHIP. AS INJUSTICE PREVAILS TRUST ERODES UNTIL INFLUENCE FADES.Read Now
“Nothing will more quickly erode the trust of the people you lead than your tolerance and ineptness to deal with ongoing injustice. Core values, clear vision, consistent communication and transparent accountability are required to maintain a just and equitable system. All of those are roles and responsibilities of true leadership.” J Loren Norris
IF YOU WANT TO BUILD YOUR LEVEL OF INFLUENCE, YOU MUST GET OUT OF YOUR BOX AND CONVERSERead Now
“In a world saturated with social media, social pressure and over socialized opinions, the notion of having a civil, respectful, compassionate conversation with an absolute stranger is a long lost art. If you desire to be a mentor, leader, teacher or genuine influence, the art of meaningful conversations must be revived.” J Loren Norris
“If integrity is doing what’s right when no one is watching, we must reconsider when we realize someone is always watching. What you consider right, moral, responsible as a leader today, might become wrong in the near future.” J Loren Norris

“The pressure to believe only what you’re told is growing more intense daily. The truth you know is the truth you are allowed to know. The information you use to make decisions from business, to family to finance is controlled, fed, manipulated by a collective of ‘smarter minds’.” J Loren Norris
“In the infinite game, the rules can change as often as the players. Because the game has no official end, those who control the rules determine those who excel and those who do not. Often, leaders lose the battle because they don’t recognize the game they are actually playing or the rules of that game.” 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.
