PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE CAPTAIN OF THE SHIP

What do I get excited about? Ever since I was a kid I felt I had a calling, that I had a purpose in life. I had a passion to make a difference in the world. I knew I wanted to be a leader. I served in the Army for many years and was fortunate to serve under some outstanding leaders and learn from the best. Since those days I have trained other leaders, coached executives and helped to develop hundreds of organizations in over 26 different countries. Along the way, I have helped raise three children and a granddaughter. I have learned many things, but the one piece of knowledge that has always been foremost in my mind is the importance of a leader. A leader is not merely a title or job description, it is an action. Leadership is more about heart and soul than about education or a diploma on the wall. A person only becomes a leader after he or she has proven themselves ratified themselves in the hearts and minds of those they are leading.

Joel Barker has the best definition of leadership. He says, A leader is a person you would follow to a place you would not go to by yourself. If there is no one following you, maybe you are not yet the leader you want to be.

So what gets me excited? The next time you are looking for a speaker for your company or association meeting, please keep me in mind. As a professional speaker for the past twenty years, the most exciting thing I love to do is speak, inspire and motivate audiences around the world.

Improve Job Satisfaction and Retain Your Best People

Imagine–you have been working late to finish an important project when one of your best employees walks into your office and tells you she has been offered a better job. This is the same person you handpicked, trained and recently gave a pay raise. As she turns to depart she says, There are others thinking about leaving, too.

What went wrong? How are you going to finish this project? Who will be next to leave? The dread is starting to sink in.

Employers face growing challenges finding and retaining people with the right skills. There are plenty of people looking for jobs, but it is harder to find people who have the right skills, work ethic and training to help employers stay competitive. The other issue facing employers is a growing population of unhappy and dissatisfied workers staying on the job. During the past three years, job dissatisfaction has jumped to the number one issue many employers encounter. This has long term implications to the competitiveness of businesses in the global marketplace.

The Cost of Employee Turnover

Each year businesses spend a ton of money recruiting, replacing and retraining new employees. They assume employee turnover is unavoidable and think there is very little they can do to prevent it. For the most part, organizations only focus on employee retention after they start experiencing a turnover problem.
