These words uttered by Tim Marks have been going round and round in my head lately. They have taken quite a long time to sink in though, which is kind of funny, considering the gist of what he is saying is that actions speak louder than words. How true is this sentiment in leadership though?Read More
Chapter 4: The Trilateral Leadership Ledger of Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward’s Launching a Leadership Revolution begins with an impactful statement from Hugo Grotius. Grotius was a Dutch lawyer, writer, theologian, and statesman of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century. On the topic of self-government, Grotius had noted that leadership boiled down to theRead More
In Chapter 7 of his book “Resolved: 13 Resolutions for Life”, Orrin Woodward identifies eight essential principles for building and maintaining long-term “philia” friendships; philia meaning the love between two friends. I won’t cover all eight principles here (because part of the journey of reading through “Resolved”is your own self-discovery); instead I want to focusRead More
“In order to lead you must first learn to how to follow” I have pondered this statement a lot recently, mostly because it is easier said than done in my opinion. There is a lot trust that must be placed in order to place ones belief in to the hands of another. How does oneRead More
Here it is… my first blog post. I have spent so much time trying to find the right topic, the right words-all to no avail. Finally, I stopped trying and just started writing. I will focus on family because that is what my mind is constantly focused on. In life we spend a great dealRead More
Have you ever wondered how people become wealthy? Were some people just born with that silver spoon in their mouth? When you study the lives of financially independent people, the answer is usually no.

"What has catapulted our company is a Leadership Development Program we started a few years ago. We set aside a half hour in the course of our twice-weekly meetings to discuss books on management, marketing, sales, & personal development. I ask employees to come prepared to discuss a chapter or two. The second meeting we review the LLR Audio of the week as a company. Quillen Brothers was named in the top 100 contractors in America after only 2 years of implementing the LLR leadership system into our culture."
"I have used the LLR Corporate Education System…with thirteen of my employees who serve as Human Service Professionals. I chose this series because the LIFE Leadership subscriptions focus on life skills, and as Human Service Professionals, they deal with and teach life skills on a daily basis."
"Having participated in numerous leadership/team building events costing anywhere from $1,500 to $15,000 per event and retaining only 10 percent of the information at best, I felt I had wasted my time and my company’s money. LIFE Leadership’s system of training over a six-month period, providing small units of information that are easily understood and absorbed at a very cost-effective price, is not only revolutionary but pure genius! Thank you, LIFE Leadership, for this great tool."
"At this point in the history of our nation, the healthcare industry has become the most complex leadership challenge of any industry. In the midst of unending federal and state mandates, hospital leaders must be able to encourage and inspire caregivers to deliver the best quality of care possible to patients and families while radically changing the environment in which this care is delivered. As a hospital CEO, I have a duty to ensure that leaders have the tools to create this change and the competency to create a healthy environment for those delivering care. The LLR Corporate Education curriculum gives me the tools to ensure leaders are prepared to serve in this capacity and are inspired to lead through chaos."
