We are in the midst of a crisis of leadership where the old rules that made us successful no longer work! When the prevailing paradigm changes, the rules change, and the incumbent players lose their advantage. In this 2-hour seminar, we discuss why everyone needs to learn the new rules to succeed in the future! If you are having challenges leading or working with people of a different generation to you, listen to this audio seminar and learn why that is and what you can do about it!
I started my first business in 1994. I was young, inexperienced and had no idea just how dramatic the roller-coaster of business would be. What I lacked in experience, I made up for with hard work, enthusiasm, grit, and determination. My partners certainly had their hands full because I was also stubborn, perhaps a little hardheaded.
The business expanded rapidly, and we generated $3.3 million (in 2017 dollars) in our first 8 months.
We hired lots of salespeople and created a sales manual for them to have tools, tips, and guidelines at their fingertips. In this article, you will find an excerpt directly out of our original manual. It is as relevant today as it was back in 1994!
Fuller’s Leadership Principles:
- Think comprehensively.
- Anticipate the future.
- Respect gestation rates.
- Envision the best possible future.
- Be a “trim tab”—an individual who can initiate big changes.
- Take individual initiative.
- Ask the obvious and naive questions.
- Do more with less.
- Seek to reform the environment, not man.
- Solve problems through action.
Man knows so much and does so little.
The world’s best actors, athletes, investors, and business people have coaches. Most average and ordinary people see having a coach as unnecessary, expensive, and a waste of money.
If a coach could help you to double your income, isn’t that a good investment?
A small group of leaders can make a huge impact on the lives of millions of people. A single decision can cause ripples to expand and widen its effects, just like the wolves of Yellowstone.
When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park after an absence of nearly 70 years, an incredible “trophic cascade” occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this riveting mashup.
For the Yellowstone environment, the wolves were the Key Leverage Point. Without them, the park declined, species died away, riverbanks eroded, the flora and fauna receded. By returning a small group of wolves, the entire park’s environment changed and lush, verdant new life returned.This is a very good example of how we can be optimistic about our own lives and planet earth as an ecosystem. It is easy to feel pessimistic, doubt what one person or a small group can do, stop trying, and give up.

This speech by Martin Luther King Jr. moves me. It’s about Personal Leadership and standing up for something meaningful.
