Leadership Superpowers: Discovering and Mastering Yours

Category : Leadership , Training

In case you haven’t noticed, we are in the middle of this year’s superhero movie releases. Three movies have been released through April, with 3 more on the horizon to be released before the end of the summer. These movies capture our imaginations and entertain us with ever-improving special effects and the time old story of good versus bad.

A Lesson in Leadership from the Grinch

Category : Leadership , Training

You probably remember the story about how the Grinch stole Christmas. It’s a beloved children’s book by Dr. Seuss, an animated TV show and a couple of movie adaptations, including one out right now.

In the story the Grinch hates Christmas because of all the noise his neighbors, the Whos in Whoville, make each year when celebrating it. He thought that if he stole all their Christmas decorations, presents and food he could stop Christmas from coming. Unfortunately, he figured out too late that Christmas would come without all the trappings. The Whos celebrated just the same because Christmas doesn’t come from a store. He realized that, “Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”

Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare, Foreword by Chris Van Gorder

Category : Leadership

I met Chris online through a mutual colleague and asked if he would provide a Foreword for my book, Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare. I could tell that he was a special leader and his voice would add a great touch to the book. As I am with everything Chris does, I was astonished at how perfect his Foreword was for the book. The key sentence from his Foreword was, “No matter which approach you take to leadership, it’s important to be authentic to who you are.” This fit right in with my personalized, continuously-improving approach to leadership.

Below is the entire Foreword to the book. Enjoy.
