“When a leader allows small details to go unnoticed and small issues to go unaddressed, the larger issues can spiral out of control quickly delaying, dismantling or even destroying, recent progress.“ J Loren Norris
“Leaders might simply dismiss the signs of a weak team and attribute them to these personal personnel problems when they are actually caused by a lack of a clearly defined and articulated team vision.” J Loren Norris
“A bad attitude is an antecedent to good leadership and even more so to running a successful business.” J Loren Norris
“Most people are unaware how much they reveal in the words they do not say. The little white lies, omissions, altered meanings and misrepresentation are equal parts subconscious and subversive.” J Loren Norris
“Better yet, what if there was a WYSIWYG button, like the easy button, you just smack it and all the misleading filters and facades fall away?“ J Loren Norris
“Someone wearing the badge of leader whose end game is a boost in their personal net worth at any cost, at others’ expense, at the risk of corruption is not a leader but a con artist… IMHO.” J Loren Norris
“When you have pounded on the question ‘what do you want?’ and come through considerable effort to the answer, articulate that in a vision.“ J Loren Norris
Seeders are leaders who plant, nurture, protect and cultivate seeds worthy of reproduction. Seeds of good ideas, discipline, loyalty, commitment, hard work, persistence and grit are seeds which bear fruit worth harvesting.” J Loren Norris
“To realize that natural law is often in your favor and conspiring for you to win is counter cultural but actually natural.” J Loren Norris
“Obviously this reality can be good or bad, fruitful or destructive, hurtful or beneficial only the outcome will reveal the impact prof the narrative and the intent of the influencer.” J Loren Norris
“Every day simple but truthful stories are used to gain favor, build influence and transform culture. If you lead like this, select, craft and deliver great stories. Don’t be about the business of telling lies well. StoryPower Masterclass will teach you the difference.” J Loren Norris
If they cannot see themselves in the completed picture, buy in will be hard to come by.” J Loren Norris
“Leaders who are out of touch, find themselves in lofty positions all alone or in dark, damp cells wondering what went wrong. Lead the narrative, lead it well.” J Loren Norris
“Taking time to hear and learn from those stories may mean the difference between enduring a personal tragedy and averting it.” J Loren Norris
“Great leaders motivate by connecting, inspire by modeling and correct by graceful redirection.“ J loren Norris
LEADERS FILTER THE MULTITUDE OF VOICES AND LISTEN TO A SELECT FEW ADVISERS
“Not everyone who has an opinion should have space in your head to live rent free. The heckler, the accuser, the loud mouth with nothing of value to add to the conversation should have no voice in your life. As a leader, people constantly want to give advice on how to do your job better. Not everyone is qualified for the assignment. Your job is to know who to listen to and who to ignore.” J Loren Norris

LEADERS KNOW ONE MUST NOT LIVE OFF THE OPINION OF OTHERS.
“Many people fail to thrive because they allow the unqualified opinions of others to sway their belief about themselves. The stories we tell ourselves and the stories we others about ourselves shape what we believe to be true about us. The stories others tell about us - that’s our brand. As leaders we must manage the narrative at home, at work and at large for ourselves and our team.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS KNOW WHEN TO GET OUT IN FRONT
“No matter how good you are as a leader, one trait and skill you share with other effective leaders, even the ones who are genuinely not good people, is the ability to communicate an effective narrative. Using the story to linguistically put yourself and your organization in the most favorable light is job #1 of effective leaders. If you are second to the table of narrative distribution, you are already too late.” J Loren Norris
LEADERS SHOULD ENDEAVOR TO INCREASE AWARENESS OF THEIR OTHER SIDE
“If you’re human you have a dark side. If you’re a leader you have faults, short comings, room for improvement and blind spots. You must spend the emotional energy and focused time to identify and rectify those areas. If you do not address those issues, you will never shine as bright as you could from every facet of your personality. There will also be important people you will remain unable to connect with until you become aware and take action.” J Loren Norris
WHY DO LEADERS FEEL GOOD WHEN THEY DO GOOD THINGS FOR OTHERS?
“Leaders have great results when they are guided by good intentions to truly help others. Leaders, whether hands on, social, cultural, business or political who use tools to alter the emotional state or biophysical state of those they lead, have results which should be held in question IMHO. Motives and intent are as important as the way you make people feel. Leaders are responsible for all of these at once.” 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
LEADERS MUST NOT BECOME NPC'S IN SOCIETY AND CULTURE
“Not every leader you encounter is a leader who is taking charge of their own life. Some are so wrapped up in the culture and societal norms that they cannot lead. They look for cues, decisions, directions by sticking a finger to the air and looking to see the direction of the wind at this very moment. They make no decisions on principle, core values, foundational ideas of right and wrong. They simply follow the crowd and do what is expedient, the most popular or the most profitable action at the time. Strong leaders are not ‘non-playable characters’ in their own life relegated to following the script of the programmers. Be a strong leader!” 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.
