Friday Unwind – Simon Sinek – Five Tips for Graduates

28 Nov

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday. Anyone who knows me knows that Simon Sinek is one of my very favorite speakers and authors on the topics of leadership. We have already posted one Simon Sinek video on the 5 for 5 blog.

I really enjoyed this one…imparting wisdom carries with it a critical responsibility. These five tips are relevant for leaders at any level. The run time is just under 16 minutes…..please, please listen to the entire video…Tip #5 is probably the most important.

If you were only going to watch or read one more things this week, please take the time to watch this video. You won’t regret it.

Have a great weekend.

All the best, kevin

Friday Unwind – Think you’re disadvantaged? Not so Fast.

13 Nov

Good morning and happy Friday!

Think something that you perceive as a disadvantage is the reason you are not successful? Think again.

In this short video, Malcolm Gladwell explains why some disadvantages can actually be advantages in our lives if we can make the most of them. How you choose to view and react to them has a big part to play……..

I HIGHLY recommend his newest book “David and Goliath”:

Have a great weekend!!

All the best, kevin

One of the best leadership speakers…ever. If you are not sure how to get started as a leader, begin by emptying your cup into those you influence. And help people see that you believe that they can do something BIG! (run time: 6m 49s)

Have a great weekend.

All the best,

Kevin
