Don't Be A Bully - Lead With Love!
ARE YOU A BULLY?
I was recently talking with a client about their work environment. It is amazing how drastically the work place has changed in the last few decades.
In similar fashion to the #meetoo movement what was once widely acceptable and expected in the way of conversation is no longer tolerated. You simply cannot talk to people like that any more!
In short, if you have not changed your communication style and word choices since your first job out of high school in 1975, you should be updating your resume and your sensitivity training at once.
Ironically, geography may be the determining factor in some language and terminology decisions. As an example, in the south (Bible Belt) the use of profanity is considered offense except under extreme conditions. Referring to people or addressing them with profanity might we be fighting words and land you in serious hot water for disrespect or even insubordination.
However, you could be fired or worse for using the wrong pronoun if you work in Seattle, San Francisco or similar minded locals. You should know this if your job requires travel. You might be a bully and not even know it. Seriously.
Bottom line is this: Bullying is ABOUT HOW OTHERS FEEL when the encounter is done. LOVE is accepting, forgiving and appreciated by ALMOST everyone. Leaders should approach everyone with love, respect and dignity whether you agree with their lifestyle, their logic or their lingo or not.
Lead with love.

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.
