LEADERS NEED ENCOURAGEMENT TOO. SUPPORT THOSE WHO SUPPORT YOU
“Leaders who are leading the charge are often out in front the of crowd, taking all the hits of rejection, facing all the obstacle and resistance. These leaders need your moral support, encouragement and assistance. Synergy is a tremendous form of encouragement and we all ways get more of what we reward or incentivize.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS WATCH THEIR FRIENDS MORE CLOSELY THAN STRANGERS TO PREVENT ENEMIES
“Friendships should be great investments of time, energy and emotion. The effort exerted to maintain a strong friendship will have a great return on investment when done well. Friends will watch your back, remain dedicated to your success, speak health to your romantic relationships and perhaps even work for you. The good leader will know where to draw the line between loyal friends and loyal employees.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW TRUE TRANSFORMATION REQUIRES A REWRITE FROM THE BELIEF SYSTEM TO THE COMMON LANGUAGE
“Employees who need a period of probation for correcting destructive behavior will often comply with expectations to save their job. The actions look right, the productivity is on par, the rhetoric sounds like they are on the mend. Unfortunately, this is often just for show. Good leaders know if the belief system changes, then the attitude and action both will change and will become evident in common conversations as well.” J Loren Norris
AWARENESS IS CRUCIAL FOR LEADERS HOWEVER MYOPATHY AND FOCUS ARE SEPARATED BY A VERY THIN LINE
“Leaders must be willing to do the hard work of self leadership, self awareness and personal introspection. Leaders must also understand the line between focus and myopathy. It’s entirely too easy to become so wrapped up in personal issues and lose sight of the bigger picture and its global impact. Its great to focus on self improvement and self empowerment just don’t lose the perspective of larger reality and the role you play in it.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW THE POWER OF DECISION MAKING TOOLS AND HOW TO USE THEM WITH DISCRETION NOT DISCRIMINATION.Read Now
LEADERS KNOW THE POWER OF DECISION MAKING TOOLS AND HOW TO USE THEM WITH DISCRETION NOT DISCRIMINATION.
“People are fickle, silly and unrealistic - especially when it comes to their data/ private information. They post comments, photos, philosophies galore on social media and yet expect no one to notice what they set out in public. Leaders need data to make good decisions like who to hire, who to contract business with, what products and services they should offer or delete and to whom should they sell those products. Data mining is neither new nor unethical. It is a tool for good decision making. Consider a doctor making a recommendation without an exam first. Bad idea right.” J Loren Norris
“If you have spent the majority of your adult life studying one field of interest, chances are you have forgotten more than most people will ever know about that topic. Leadership is one of those fields. If someone drops a nugget of observation on you, remember they have likely studied and practiced it for years and their intent is to save you some headaches.” J Loren Norris
“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
“We have heard stories all of our lives which inform the way we think and feel about ourselves and others. ‘Big girls don’t cry.’ ‘Real men don’t cry.’ ‘Look how you made me feel.’ All of these comments and sentiments likely harken back to a moment in your life. The incident, the relationship, the emotional drama which surrounded the very moment are as fresh as if it happened yesterday. Leaders must be aware not only of their own stories, but of the stories of anyone on their team which influence the attitude of daily behavior.” J Loren Norris
“Focus, proper light on the subject, good perspective are issues of practice and action equally important to photographers and leaders. Too close to the subject means focusing clearly will be near impossible. The wrong angle, the wrong distance, the wrong light and the wrong focus on the subject will lead to failure for both leaders and photographers.” J Loren Norris
“Leaders who seek only authority and power and yet ignore responsibility could be called corrupt leaders. Leaders who use power and authority to benefit themselves and those they favor, and also treat others with disregard, also corrupt leaders. Supervisor, boss, company owner, shift manager, elected official, if you are a leader with one of these titles and you choose to execute your authority to the detriment of others, you need to take time to ask yourself, ‘Am I corrupt?’” J Loren Norris
“Of all the ways leaders must be willing and prepared to fight the strategy mentioned in this lesson could be the one double edged sword of leadership. If you do not learn this one and apply it diligently, you will fight more battles than necessary and lose kore than you should.” J Loren Norris
“No one wants to follow a leader who doesn’t get it. No one wants to be subject to a leader whose solutions are out of touch with the real problem. Get out of the ivory tower of your leadership role and get into the shoes of the people you want to help. The system does not do this well. By doing so, you are the weapon to fight the system, a leader in touch!” J Loren Norris
“The number of leaders who promote a new idea, innovation, invention, process, procedure, or policy who will never be expected to live under the conditions created by their idea is mind numbing. Often the results will not be measurable or obvious for decades, but the fame associated with the new idea is a really all certain people are concerned with. Don’t be that leader.” J Loren Norris
PEOPLE IGNORE ABUSES THEY BECOME DESENSITIZED TO... ITS A PROCESS CALLED GROOMING. THE USE OF TRIGGERS IS INTENTIONAL!Read Now
“The need for control is an addiction that every leader and politician must resist. Leadership is about influence not control. Control is a form of abuse which requires manipulation and coercion. In order for total control to exist, the process of grooming must precede the request for surrender because no one will naturally give up their liberty without it.” J Loren Norris
“Whether your passion is to make it to the pros from a D1 college or to run a global sales company or to rule the free world, if you find yourself distracted, the dividing of your attention will reduce or eliminate the power of your focus to accomplish your goals.” J Loren Norris

“If I, you, we, do not take RESPONSIBILITY as a core value, we surrender the power to lead our own lives! To whom you give the blame, the credit, the authority, you give the power to decide. Taking personal responsibility for your life and outcome is the single most impactful decision you will ever make.” J Loren Norris
“Whatever you have right now in the way of accomplishments, possessions, accolades, you must be willing to let them go if you want to grow to the next level of opportunity. One cannot grasp the next trapeze whilst clinging to the current one. Leadership demands the core value of sacrifice.” J Loren Norris
“At every level of our lives OPPORTUNITY distractions derail us. Sometimes that’s a GREAT thing because distractions allow us to reduce stress, refocus and refresh. Sometimes though, distractions alter the course of our future, destroy hope and prevent us from fulfilling our destiny.” J Loren Norris
“What is the saturation point of attention? When is too much LIVE, too much to care about? Will social media reach the point of “din” rather than a prominant voice? Will there become a time that so many voices clambering to be heard will become irrelevant background noise? What is the tipping point of online marketing? When everyone is standing on the same “stump” and yelling for attention, will they all be “crying wolf” in unison?” J Loren Norris
“If chivalry means manipulation, dominating, abusing, taking advantage of others, then it should be “dead”. If the meaning of chivalry is exercising curtesy and politeness and friendliness with nothing to gain but becoming a better human - LONG LIVE CHIVALRY!” J Loren Norris
“Many scientists will tell you the human mind never really forgets anything. The ability to recall the details, emotion and value of an idea or event requires keeping detailed notes and intentional reflection. That’s why everyone should journal.” J Loren Norris
“At some point you will need to contend with their claim to your success. IF THEY HAVE been a great mentor and contributor to your growth, GIVE THEM THE HONOR AND CREDIT for that. If they have not, be prepared to be gracious and let them have the tiny sparkles they steal from you.” 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.
