"The challenge for both sides is the idea of "getting what they deserve." Both parties come expecting a little more from the other. How often have you felt like you've done more than you were paid for? How often have you paid for a service or product and felt like you paid way too much for it or got less than you paid for?"
Do you do too much for others?
Perhaps the better question is: HOW do you do too much for others? Is it possible to do more for others than you should?
I know employees and employers are constantly asking this question without using the same words.
Employees may sound more like:
The employer may sound more like:

We all face the same thing. Let me drop a secret of success on you. WHEN you give more than you are asked for or paid for, your current boss or client may NEVER MENTION IT! They may offer no raise, no promotion and no opportunity. Trust me, I have been there. HOWEVER, never assume that means NO ONE notices. Someone did, someone will and the result will be greater opportunity in the future.
Truly, the greatest benefit for you as a leader who does more than they are expected is the benefit of the person you will become along the way.
A better person, a better leader, a greater success, is the one who seeks to do more than is expected of them.

Attitude Hack - Live 1 Day Training Event
Attitude Hack Live Training Event
Price includes live training and travel expenses in DFW +/- 50 miles
The only thing more contagious than the common cold is attitude. Attitude can infect the morale of the work force, disrupt the work flow, and ultimately impact the bottom line through diminished productivity.
Infectious, disruptive attitudes can start with a simple comment taken out of context or conversation over heard by a customer. The final cost of these communication stumbles can be enormous. Ranging from lost time and productivity to lost customers, attitude can do more damage than a north Texas spring storm and with less warning.
Good news! Attitude is easily detected and corrected when you master the Attitude Hack.
Attitude Hack is a leadership development course for teams from 5-500 people. Attitude Hack has been trained for Parliament Members in the DRCongo, Graduate Students of the University of Kinshasa, the National PTA, Georgia State PTA and GE to name a few.
I am J Loren Norris host of Leading Leaders Podcast. I am an Independent Certified Leadership Coach with the John MAXWELL Team. I would love to bring Attitude Hack training to your leadership team.
If Attitude is going to have a deep impact on your business and bottom line, make it a positive attitude with a positive impact.

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.
