Soft skills are hard. 

There's nothing 'soft' about soft skills. 

It's easy to tell someone what to do: To bark orders and use fear and uncertainty as  means to control. 

But in today's world, that just doesn't cut it.

To be a great leader today means becoming a people genius. 

I teach leaders how to engage their teams, how to coach their people to be extraordinary, how to lead their businesses to new heights, and how to impact their organizations and communities. 

Be prepared to rethink your leadership potential. 

"The task of the leader is to get people from where they are to where they have not been."

                                                                                                                                          Henry Kissinger

I would add to that, "And where they don't yet believe they can go."

Leadership is no longer about command and control. 

Today, leadership is about three things:


  • Engagement

  • Energy

  • Execution


1. Engagement

Today's leaders must be people-centric geniuses, capable of engaging people on a deep, emotional level.  They must engage, inspire, motivate, and create trust and real commitment and comradery. They must engage their people in the organizations' purpose and make them part of something larger than themselves. Leaders are tasked with leading their people to trust them and, in turn, to trust the organization.

Today's leaders are constantly challenged to attract and retain the best talent in their industries, and research has consistently proven that engaged employees are happy employees who stay with their organizations. 

Today, engagement is a vital ingredient in every successful team and organization. And it's in the hands of every leader. 

2. Energy

In every industry, today's environment is plagued with uncertainty and unpredictability. Leaders and their teams must be able to turn on a dime and redirect, always with the same level of enthusiasm, energy, and optimism. 

'People buy people' is not a new concept. But now more than ever before, the energy and commitment of each individual needs to be felt by consumers, customers, and colleagues. In a digital age, people crave human contact and interaction: People want to feel inspired and energized by a cause. They want to experience emotion.

The leader must master the art of creating productive emotion within the team, and deploy that emotion to increase energy and commitment in the team, and amongst customers and consumers. 

3. Execution

When boiled down to it's raw form, a leaders' role is to execute on organizational strategy. Their job, simply, is to make it happen. 

It's the most important role in any organization. 

Leaders must be prepared to put a stake in the ground, stand for something, and be prepared to go against the flow to get the job done. This takes confidence, vulnerability, and a finely tuned people-radar.

Execution is no longer simply about getting the job done: It's about getting the job through others. 

How I can help

I work with organizations and teach leaders how to create huge competitive advantage by engaging people on a deep, humane level, energizing them to do great things, and keeping them focused and committed on getting the job done, and done well. 

I teach leaders how to use the unquestionable power of humane leadership.
