YOUR THOUGHTS AND RESPONSES
What is the Definition of a Successful Leader?
I believe the definition of a successful leader can be summarized as a person who adds immediate value as a trusted advisor, mentor and visionary who uses a process approach to lead the organization and its people to new levels of success. Great organizations need to have a thoughtful vision and strategy. Great leaders need to combine that strategic vision with the ability to tactically execute the strategy.
I would love to hear what you think and would greatly value your input. Please give me your thoughts on this list and previous conversations on our main topics. Let me know what YOU would add to the list. Just drop me a quick email at [email protected] with your ideas regarding The Essential Ingredients of Leadership.
New Podcasts Now Available At Our Website
Check out our latest podcasts on leadership and small business. I spoke with Staci Marie of Inspire Me and Sharifa of Ask Sharifa.
We covered a lot of topics in a number of these podcasts including the concepts of Balanced Leadership, leaving a legacy and how working for a large organization differs from owning one’s own business.
Your Next Conference, Your Next Motivational Speaker, Your Next Topic
To achieve success, you will need to embrace the Balanced Leadership philosophy along with the goals and objectives through walking the talk and your daily actions. Your success will be measured by the degree to which everyone in your organization at every level begins to understand, embrace, emulate, and execute the vision and strategy.

Coach’s Corner – March Madness and an exclusive never-seen before interview with UCLA Coach John Wooden
In every newsletter I include a quote from UCLA Coach John Wooden, whom I had the great pleasure to interview while I was a leader at UPS. Coach often said, “Although there is no progress without change, not all change is good.” Click below to view the full interview.
With March Madness around the corner, please look at the unique and exclusive interview with legendary Coach John Wooden on our website. Coach Wooden was a supporter of the Jimmy V Foundation and in memory of Coach Valvano, who passed away, April 28, 1993, we are remembering Coach Valvano and his fight by donating one dollar to the Jimmy V Fund to find the cure for each copy of Tighten The Lug Nuts sold.
Coach Valvano is remembered for being many things: a player, a coach, a broadcaster, a brother, husband and a father. But above all he was an inspiration. And when he was diagnosed with cancer at 46, he never gave up. Thank you in advance for your generous support and enjoy the book.

Tighten the Lug Nuts: The Principles of Balanced Leadership
Leadership is something we all have concerns about. Leadership is not a concept that only applies to certain people in business, government, and civic organizations. The reality is that no matter our age, gender, occupation, educational level, or position in life, each of us touches and influences other lives. In this book, rated 5 stars on Amazon, I present a powerful overview of the concepts of Balanced Leadership and how each of us as leaders in our own way can make a difference and Leave Our Legacy.
