The process is helped when you acknowledge grief, find support, and allow time for grief to work. We do not only experience grief on the death of someone. People can

Courageous Leadership

In my previous article, I wrote about character in leadership. Today, I will add onto that statement and say that true leadership requires courageous character. Have you ever found yourself in a situation where everything is going completely wrong! The reason for everything going wrong is YOU. You overlooked, forgot or omitted to communicate certain


"What you do in secret will always show up in public" The question of leadership and character assumes that leadership is a role because it is roles that imply responsibilities. Roles like father, mother, teacher, lighthouse keeper, captain, etc all have certain responsibilities. But if leadership isn't a role but an act or impact like

The Best Dreams Happen When We Are Awake

We have heard it said time and time again that the graveyard is the richest place on earth. How we live today will determine if we will contribute to the wealth lying in the cemetery or not. It is no surprise that we will all end up there. The only surprise will be the timing.

Intentionally Connecting

To be a leader, you must have followers. Right? People will follow us for different reasons. Might be coercion or providing an incentive.

Science tells us that this is a mental condition and that we need to seek psychiatric help ergo medication to deal/cure this. Research suggests that depression doesn’t spring from simply having too much or too little of certain brain

Virtuous Leadership

Good Leadership is Indispensable. I believe that trapped inside each of us is an undiscovered leader of great value to this generation. I keep wondering to myself, why do seemingly reasonable and intelligent people continue to operate in non-virtuous and vicious ways that reflect low moral standards? We live in a time of moral deficit
