I just received and will start reading soon the book, Dance Until It Rains (multiple authors; Prologue by Vic Johnson). Bob Proctor wrote the Forword where he shares the influence of Earl Nightingale in his life. Nightingale once said: “whether you have a little or a lot of formal education…

Leaders are faced with decisions and calls-to-action all day long:
At those critical points where YOUR action is required, ACT. Don’t rely on good intentions.
Many times, it is the action of the leader that can begin positive momentum within their team/company. Action can help initiate great momentum. Inaction can end up causing you and your team to stall out. John Maxwell says:
“If you’ve got all the passion, tools, and people you need to fulfill a great vision, yet you can’t seem to get your organization moving and going in the right direction, you’re dead in the water as a leader. If you can’t get things going (ACTION), you will not succeed.” (from The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership)
So today, when facing a decision, ACT. Get things moving. Get your team moving. ACT.
“Leaders always find a way to make things happen.” John Maxwell
I am pleased to introduce you to Ron & Rodney Lewis. Ron is a friend that I met just a few months ago. Since then, Ron has spoken with our company’s leadership team. We also have lunch from time to time to talk leadership, personal growth, and connections.
Ron and Rodney have an incredible mission…
Yesterday, my leadership team and I had lunch with Tim & Todd Baumann of Aunt Millie’s Bakehouse. Tim serves as the EVP of Sales and Todd is the Director of Continuous Improvement / Strategic Growth. I met Tim while standing in a 2 hour line during early voting. We talked about bread, Cubs baseball, and leadership.I later emailed him asking him to meet my leadership team.
I have taken my leaders outside of our office to meet, interact with, and learn from local entrepreneurs and business leaders. Aunt Millie’s has been in business in our city since 1901 and they do business all over the U.S. as overseas (Saudi Arabia, Dubai, etc.). The family who has been leading this company does so with passion, integrity, and great effectiveness.
We had an outstanding time with great conversations and shared insight. My leadership team asks wonderful questions and are very curious and eager to learn and grow.
Here are some of our take-a-ways:
In our community, we have a rich history of successful leaders, entrepreneurs , and community investors. This exercise is proving to add value to my team, those we meet, and to me personally. My team becomes ignited through these experiences. We grow in our leadership journey as we work to always “lift our lids”.
