#259: Monday Mastery – Community & Civic Leadership

Play

Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

You and I have the power to influence our inner circles, and the ripples we leave beyond our immediate spheres. The way to do that, the way to have a positive, powerful impact on the world around us, is to get involved in it. Oftentimes we “excuse” ourselves from civic service, thinking it will be someone else’s job. And it very well may be. But will they do the kind of job that best suits the future? Or do you have more of a leadership responsibility than you gave yourself credit for?

Watch the video or download and listen to our audio file as well. Join us every Monday for a new Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader podcast, and every Thursday for a new in-depth episode.

next level challenge pt 1

On today’s program, I want us to begin to explore what it means to take our life and leadership to the next level.

I’m also going to be sharing with you why the next few weeks are so very strategic for me, for our podcast, and for our work, AND why what we are sharing is going to make a massive difference in your life.

For the next two weeks, let’s talk about The Next Level Challenge: What is it, why should I pursue it, and who is responsible?

5 Mysteries of Expectations Revealed

When Good Intentions Aren't Good Enough

Setting goals or expectations is of paramount importance if one is going to succeed and make a difference in this world. However, goals or targets we set are oftentimes misaligned. They might be irrelevant to where we need to be going in life or they may be completely disconnected from a person’s true desires.

If a person expects they’ll struggle in some area of their life, they will. So profound, isn’t it? If you expect your sales to drop, if you expect your business’ bottom line to be affected negatively, it will. What you expect is so important.

Why? Because what you see is what you get. What you set your expectations on is what tends to show up in your life. What you set your mind on is where you point your life. Where you point your life, you’re going to wind up at the destination you determined when you started the journey.

Knowing this, we have to set our expectations in a different place. What we did before is not good enough. The next level requires more.

I want to give you five factors to determine how you set your expectations.

#257: Monday Mastery – Family Leadership

Play

Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

Family leadership is something that is so important, yet we find it missing in so many areas of our culture today. While in our last episode, we focused on being able to take care of yourself and your own personal growth and development, we continue that train of thought with developing leadership in the family. Having a title of “mom” or “dad” does not make you a qualified family leader. Your leadership within your family holds the key to the success of your children, and your children’s children.
