Leading through Service

servant leadership students Effective, strong leaders are not what they used to be.  That is in no way, shape or form meant as a complaint…it is a statement of the evolution of the leadership and the pathway to a better world. Leadership, like pretty much everything else, has changed over time in many parts of the world.  Strong leaders used to lead firmly from the top.  There was a clear and enforced heirachy of who was in charge and whose orders were to be followed.  Leaders led by giving orders with or without divulging the details of why, and everyone “under” them...

Toddlers in Tiara’s;  beautiful young girls and their horrifying mother’s...

Feelings are Not for Sissies

EI Mentor, Marcia Reynolds, Psy.D. What is the difference between someone who is “in charge” and someone who is an effective leader? What takes someone from parenting to being an effective parent? What do 90% of high performers have that middle of the road workers often lack? What makes someone go from being an acquaintance to a valued friend? What skill determines 58% of your job performance? What is that something special that some people have that makes them so easy to like, so easy to follow, easy to be around and someone who can resolve conflict or deliver hard news without creating...
