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

Good morning everyone. For the past several years, this is how I remember November and December – WHOOOOSH! And I wake one morning and BAM it is December 19th or 20th. I would feel guilty and frankly frustrated that I... Read more »
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)
