The 4 Stages of Leadership – The Path to Recovery!

The 4 Stages of Leadership – The Path to Recovery!

I like to read.

I like to identify with people

I am HUMAN  Resources


So when I started to research into the world of drugs and alcoholism.

I found that the road to recovery questions the very essence, the very being of a human soul.

I found the path to REAL LEADERSHIP is not very different

Dedicated to all the souls who have been down the path of recovery and come out the other side for they learned that leadership comes from within.

Steps for Success in Life and in Business

Be Ambitious

All teams need ambition.  Otherwise you’re team and business is dead!  The saying “if we build they will come” wrong!  Once was true and now no longer so!

You have to have ambition, goals, determination and “reality distortion”. (Steve Jobs)


Input is welcomed! Indeed essential. Communication is about the “art of being understood”  (Peter Ustinov) Hearing but more importantly listening to what your customer wants, needs, and is willing to pay for.

Encourage your customers to give their opinions, have open minded brainstorming sessions with them, and listen! Importantly find out what it is they need to make them a success.

Get rid of the Weeds

Every garden has weeds, if you don’t keep your garden clear of these weeds, they will take over.  Get rid of negative people; focus on positive, dedicated, and hard working people. No room for negativity!

Hire “artists” (Seth Godin) for they will weave a tapestry of magic surrounding the delivery of your mission and culture.

Work Hard-Play Hard
- Encourage More

Recognize those employees who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.  Yes, they get a paycheck, but our younger generation needs that boost.

Acknowledge their hard work with a thank you note or just say “Thank You”.  Acknowledgement goes a long way and is always worth more than the value of a dollar!


People like to do business with people they know and more importantly like.  Take every opportunity to attend a networking event, like a community program, or luncheon.  Meeting new people often leads to new consumers! Relationships are everything!

Exquisite Customer Delight

Never forget that our legacy is to leave our customers with a product or service that they never knew they wanted or needed but once you gave it to them they cannot be without.

Inspired by a coffee house conversation between Sister Mae I and HRMexplorer @2012

What is the difference between an over achiever and a super achiever?

Super achiever Daily Productivity Planning:

1. Plan for tomorrow today!  Take 10 minutes at the end of the day to make a priorities list.

2. Establish the top 3 goals that need to be accomplished.

3. Now check out time on your calendar (3 MVP) Most Valuable Priorities.

Shut your door, shut off your phone, focus!

4. Bite the Dog!  Take the nasty job & do first!  Get it off your plate.

“Counting our blessings – Our List of do not haves.”

I have been thinking about the number of conversations I have with people when I ask them how they would respond if I asked them.

How would you do count your blessings? (Being appreciative and grateful about what they have.)

There is much rhythm in what people say and of course many say the same thing.

Og Mandino in his book “Secrets for Success & Happiness”

asks us a rather different question that we would all find rather useful to list:

Our List of “Do not haves.”

At first I thought like many would well that is a crazy question. That is easy I don’t have a million dollars, a big house… No Blessings here!!!!

Og gave us a different list for us to start. I will begin the “Do not have –  Blessings list”  and you can add your own…


  • A leaky roof
  • Poor relations with my family
  • Bad health

Go on add yours and lets all count our blessings!
