The Global Leadership Summit 2017 with Bill Hybels is one of the most powerful and inspirational seminars available today. Everyone focused on achieving excellence in leadership should attend every year. Join over 400,000 leaders as they share their experiences and advice for leaders everywhere. The summit is August 10 and 11 and can be viewed from their multiple broadcast locations. I highly recommend this summit. More information can be found at: www.willowcreek.com.

Thanks,

Have you ever been in the middle of a response to a crisis that turned out to not be a crisis after all? Have you ever had to go to extraordinary efforts to pull together information or provide a defense for a situation that did not really happen? Did it feel like a full emotion response to a false alarm?

In this video I will do a 2 minute summary of the blog post “Full Emotion False Alarm” on SkipGilbert.com. Join me as we take time to review a few pointers on becoming a more effective leader.

Making a Difference

Do you ever wonder if the fruit of your efforts make a difference? Have you ever felt that you were shouting something of great importance, but nobody was listening? Have you ever been discouraged because you know the solution, but nobody seems to recognize you as an authority? I know I have and I still encounter that feeling on a regular basis.

Many years ago, I was exposed to a simple story that to this day helps me put my expectations in perspective and reminds me why I need to keep going. It helps me keep my perspective even when it seems nobody is listening or I question if what I am doing makes a difference.

Keep Thinking: Thoughts for Success

Available at Amazon.com in Paperback and Kindle!

As leaders we are faced with many challenges, not the least of which are staying motivated and moving forward. The steady drumbeat of everyday activity tends to rob us of our optimism and causes us to question our capability. Occasionally, we need to regain our perspective by taking a step back to refresh and reexamine our thoughts and approaches.

As smart leaders we know it is essential that we continue to learn. We know we benefit when we take the opportunity to evaluate our surroundings and incorporate the new learnings into our knowledgebase. We have come to understand the value of taking time to review the key principles and experiences that have led to our current success.

A Healthy Perspective

When are we at our best, when we are tired, irritable, sluggish or well rested, energized and feeling good about ourselves? The answer is obvious, when we are rested, energized and feeling good about ourselves. So how can we best take care of ourselves to ensure our peak performance?

In this video I will do a 2 minute summary of the blog post “Healthy Perspective” on SkipGilbert.com. Join me as we take time to review a few pointers on becoming a more effective leader.

Servant-Leader

Are we leaders or rulers? Do we lead by telling others what to do or support the needs of those producing results? As a leader when we view the hierarchy of our organization, do we see ourselves sitting at the top or bottom of the pyramid?
