Patrick Lencioni #GLS19 said “there are only two types of leaders: SERVANT LEADERS and those who want something REWARD SEEKING LEADERS.”
Which one are you? Do you offer yourself for the betterment of others? Do you give beyond your title, your role and your Nolen benefit? Do you do the work which seems “beneath you?” If so, you are likely a servant leader.
If you want leadership roles in your life because of the “fun”’of the notoriety, the power and authority you wish to exercise over others and the fat paycheck... you might be a reward seeking leader.
I encourage you to get Patrick’s book and do more homework on the issue. But let me suffice it to say this: Leadership requires a right heart, right motives and right thinking about others. There are loads of selfish people in this world with selfish motives. There are also loads of people with a right heart who want to help others. The latter will rise to the top in influence with our without the title of LEADER on their name plate or resume.
Be that kind of person.

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.
