"In this day of digital information way too many bits of information are at risk of “hijack” and discretion is a must. Yet, even still, being elusive and coy with your team could cost you the trust of those closest to you."
LEADERS MUST BALANCE DISCRETION WITH AUTHENTIC TRANSPARENCY.
When you realize the magnitude of what you know you suddenly tremble with fear at the thought of what someone else, anyone else can know about you.
Last night I heard a poignant phrase on a TV drama I am found of called “Seal Team”. I know the show is made up and most of what happens is over aggrandized but this statement rings so true it must be considered by leaders of all levels.
“You cannot connect the dots you don’t have.”
In this particular scenario the team was in a hot spot because of significant piece of missing information. Their intel officer took the blame on herself and her commander offered her solace with the previous comment.
Ask yourself this: if a 15 year old can hack the digital life of another teen and cause SWAT to be called to their home, how vulnerable are you?
In this day of digital information way too many bits of information are at risk of “hijack” and discretion is a must.
Yet, even still, being elusive and coy with your team could cost you the trust of those closest to you.
BALANCE is key. As a leader you must know, who needs to know.
You must also know what no one needs to know and you must MIND THE DOTS!!

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.
