What makes you angry? Or what is anger? Leaders need to know both answers.
The nature and climate of our current culture is a fascinating part of human evolution. The rate at which society is changing and the factors which are causing it might blow your mind.
Anger. Frustration. Finger pointing. Outbursts of rage. Violence (in the streets and in the work place). Distrust. Jealousy. All of these are expressions of emotions out of control. And dare I say they are intentionally provoked by some for financial gain and others for political gain.
This is a problem. Fellow JMT leadership coach and crisis intervention specialists Veronica Sites knows better than I do the impact unresolved conflict has on the work environment. But I can tell you this: much of the problem we face in culture wars today stems from a lack of personal accountability, an inability to control our emotions, unfettered license to misbehave without consequences and the common thread of such behavior all around us.
As leaders, we need to get a grip. First on our own emotions, second on an understanding of what is provoking those we lead and how to counter it.
My friend and licensed Counselor Brady Daniel will tell you Anger = fear + pain.
If you can discover what causes your team fear and pain you can abate the anger before it causes damage.
Leading with compassion is required now even more than ever before.

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.
