My student was having a dilemma about his choice of career path. He had boldly gone with his heart, soul and spent his bank account on his dream. After blood, sweat and tears, he sadly returned home empty handed. He asked me why he would want to do something so badly, only to have it blow up in his face? He did learn a valuable lesson, he made some new friends, but at the end of the day, the project just didn't work. But why?Specialist versus consultant. Small groups of Consultants have now become groups of specialists - CFO Services, Marketing Services, or Management Services. Specialists are clarity learning leadership who do the work, rather than just make recommendations.After the furniture is in place you are ready to dress the wall or walls with just the right artsy touch. Select a picture that goes with your theme or has a touch of the wall color in it to really bring out the room. Here are the last elements you may wish to add: a plant or tree (fake, if you are like me), a table waterfall or fountain, or floor fountain, or zen garden, and scented candles.The people that change things and make things happen, or that inspire others to move forward rarely do so because they mandate that their ideas or status to the people they connect with. They inspire and spark transformation through their passion for their company, idea, product, project, etc…That's because passion is contagious. Having a well positioned brand opens the door to a place of influence and impact. If you can't get genuinely excited about what you are doing, how do can you expect to have lasting impact and meaningful influence with people and in situations.Invest in your Leadership Development. Books, podcasts and teaching videos cost a lot. But consider them as an investment, in which you will reap the benefits of greater effectiveness and efficiency in your leadership. And when you become a better leader, you can certainly lead people to greater heights and better performance.

Before we can go about providing assistance to those around us in an emergency situation, we first need to secure our own oxygen masks over our own faces. This may seem selfish at first, but it is the most selfless action we can take in the moment. Failing to take care of ourselves first may result in us and the people relying on our help losing consciousness. One of the characteristics of effective Leadership Development is learning to live our own life and follow our own passions. It is this kind of life that gives rise to the positivity and health in us that we can then pass on to others.I never understood why I had such an aversion to and trouble with numbers and mathematics. I wasn't stupid, I was reading before the end of kindergarten and have been devouring the written word ever since. English and history were easy subjects as were any others based on language and not numbers. Over the years I just decided I was 'stupid in math', that math was 'just not logical'. Then one day I mentioned in an online forum that I felt I had some sort of dyslexia but with numbers and not letters. Bingo! The answer came; perhaps I had Dyscalculia.Are you so future focused that you forget to look back at what you've done and give yourself an A for effort? It's important to know where you're going, but equally critical to know where you've been.

The whole is a group, who need to interact, and support each other. In retrospect, industry works because of the strength of the team. If you're trying and trying with burning passion for what you want to achieve in a career, and it isn't working for you, than you turned on the wrong faucet. The tub let's say has 20 knobs, all the taps drip into the same tub, but not all of them have an equal function.A wise man once said. "Investors don't like you, or your company. They don't care about your products. They just need to know how they are going to make money-or they'll get fired if they don't." And that wise man is Jimmy Treybig, partner at a venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates.After the furniture is in place you are ready to dress the wall or walls with just the right artsy touch.
