LEADERS MUST EXPOSE LIARS
Lies can destroy an organization. Lies can weaken trust, darken hope, damage relationships and forever damage professional and personal reputations.
Lies in an organization, just like in politics need have no bearing or relationship to truth. Simply presenting the lie first will make it seem more believable than a truth told later.
A classic narcissistic behavior would make up stories about other team members which have the effect of making others look bad and the narcissist look better. Accusations, declarations and simple slanders will do fine. Once the lies are told, anything which follows seems retribution or retaliation even if the latter set of facts are the only truth.
Leaders must be aware of such narcissistic behavior and look for the advance warning signs. Most often a person with these tendencies will come highly recommended from people they have “fooled” in the past. They will be perceived as superstar high achievers and potential top performers. They have sold themselves well - especially in contrast to those they are willing to demean.
Remember the decades of wisdom in the words of world renown leadership guru Dr John C Maxwell: “We tens to hire people for what they know, then we FIRE THEM FOR WHO THEY ARE!”
Leaders be aware and thwart this behavior swiftly with extreme fortitude at the very start!

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.
