BE A LEADER – The Steely System

Posted by on Aug 17, 2017 in Business Development, Business Effectiveness, Current News Blog, Personal Effectiveness | 0 comments

The word “leadership” is practically an overused cliché these days. Some people believe that America’s politicians are leaders (mostly NOT), and the definition of REAL leadership has grown fuzzy and illusive. From my perspective as an extreme leader, leadership is inspired from the outside the leader, but its energy and capability lie inside the leader. Most of the engagement of leadership involves leading something, someone, or a group of people (tribe). So there must be an object or an organization to lead. Otherwise, the leader is merely going on a walk, alone. Visualize a crusader,...

These days, in order to gain the attention of your ideal prospects, it’s imperative that you INNOVATE the way you promote your value and solution. Here are some tips: 1. Scrap the “Image” and work on an identity. The first step to success is to get away from the idea of creating an image. In fact, the literal definition of image is an imitation or representation of a person or thing. Now that is exactly what you don’t want to be… an imitation. Identity, on the other hand, is the condition of being the same in all qualities. It’s based on truth and honesty. And believe me, it...

Therefore, the paradigm of compromise looms large, especially when it comes to starting a business, and doing the hard (smart) work that’s necessary to get it where it needs to be.

STRATEGY vs TACTICS in Business

Posted by on Jan 10, 2016 in Business Development, Business Effectiveness, Current News Blog, The Steely System | 0 comments

Throughout my 25 years of professional business leadership, I’m always surprised over how many business owners and leaders choose to remain reactive and tactical – versus strategically proactive – regarding their business activities, in essence sabotaging their ultimate success and potential. The following is my summarized effort of the key imperatives of focus, upon which truly committed business leaders must focus, lest they become afflicted by “tactic-itis,” which often deludes people into THINKING they’re being productive – which is a symptom of being simply BUSY – versus...

THE ADVENTURE OF TRAVEL  — The Steely System

I’m sitting here in the Delta Crown Room, waiting on my flight from LAX to Sydney, looking forward to a 15 hour journey, in a big, air-conditioned, pressurized tin-can at 35,000 feet. It was tough getting to this point… I’d planned this trip about three months ago, got a good deal on the flight, and made it a point to choose the best seats I could get.

So I pushed the entire trip a day, and shuffled...
