Reason #14 – Prepare for Winter Conditions

In my book, SELF Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional and Exceptional, I tell a very personal story about my son, Cory and an experience he had in sub-freezing temperatures.

This is a picture with me and my children, Holly and Cory, and Holly’s children Sam and Miles.

Cory’s story is in my chapter about EMPOWERMENT.  Cory was not empowered during his experience because he had not applied the three P’s of Empowerment.

My book will help you prepare for those winter conditions that we all experience literally or figuratively.  It’s about becoming empowered instead of powerless.

It was, in fact, goldfish ownership that inspired me to begin writing a book several years ago.  In my recently published book, you’ll learn how three little fish helped me begin an odyssey.

Comment on 12 Foundation Essentials for Building a Winning Team

As an employee, I cannot stress the importance of #4 enough. Recently, I was working on a project – my laptop was about 6 years old. It kept crashing every time I tried to do the most basic thing in PowerPoint. I wanted to throw it out the window. In order to complete the project on time, I brought in my personal computer. Needless to say, I complained loudly and got new equipment, but it should have NEVER gotten to that point! Penny wise and pound foolish!
