Leadership Quality

“Vision.�? More than 3300 studies have been done over the years in an attempt to identify the qualities of leadership. What makes one man or woman rise to the top of an organization or empire while most others simply lead average lives? The most common quality found in all these studies was that of “Vision.” The difference between leaders and ordinary people is that leaders have an exciting vision for the future; average people do not. In our seminars, we teach the importance of “Future-orientation.” It seems that successful people throughout the ages have a clear idea of the kind of future that they wish to create for themselves and others.

“The history of wars, throughout the ages is defeat, defeat, defeat, defeat, and then ultimate victory.�?

It appears that the Iraq war is getting under control.

What Everybody Wants

“How to Start or Build a Successful Business.�? During 2007, I have had the great pleasure of speaking for the Get Motivated Seminars, organized by Peter and Tamera Lowe and Brian Forte in major sports facilities and auditoriums across the country. Peter Lowe has developed a business model of seminar promotion that makes him the top seminar promoter in the world.

In October, they sold out two sports arenas in downtown Dallas, each holding almost twenty thousand people. As one of their speakers, I addressed one sports arena with 18,000 people… Read more

Back to the Balkans

Business seminar in Macedonia Some months ago, I received an invitation from a company called Triple S Learning in Skopje, Macedonia to conduct a business seminar on Management, Sales and Personal Effectiveness. Last Monday, I flew from San Diego to San Francisco, caught a ten-hour flight to Frankfurt, and then flew on to Vienna and Skopje in the South of what used to be called Yugoslavia, arriving at 4:30 in the afternoon. Macedonia has been one of the poor countries of Southern Europe for many years. Now, it is aggressively seeking foreign investment by introducing a 12% flat tax, plus a series of incentives for new business development that make it one of the most attractive places in Europe to… Read more

Speaking Power

All successful businesses and successful salespeople do certain things in common, over and over again. Last week, I was invited by Mark Victor Hanson to give a talk at his Mega Speaking Empire Conference in Los Angeles at the Westin by Los Angeles International Airport. More than 800 people had registered and turned out to learn how to speak professionally and promote themselves as speakers, trainers and consultants. The information presented was tremendous, as were the different speakers who explained the craft of speaking, and demonstrated what an excellent speaker looked like on the platform in front of an audience. As usual, my contribution was to give the “Meat and potatoes” of speaking to create what I call the “spine… Read more
