Persevere through mistakes
Power Point ń Effective motivators keep a bag of tricks with them and use whatever devices are necessary to help their followers stare down failure, learn from their mistakes, and go on with perseverance.
Alan Loy McGinnis
Power Thought ń Regardless of title or position, everyone is going to make mistakes within your organization now and then. The effective leader is going to encourage and motivate his team through those times and in the end, the person and the team will be stronger because of it. The motivator knows that what may be a mistake for one team member is a bridge to success for another. It’s all in how you handle it.
-Doug Dickerson
Power Surge ń Success isn’t permanent, and failure isn’t fatal.

Show your team you care
Power Point ń In easy times and in tough times, what seems to matter most is the way we show those nearest us that we’ve been listening to their needs, to their joys, and to their challenges.
-Fred Rogers
Power Thought ń In tough economic tines like these it’s more important than ever to let those around you know that you care. Don’t allow concerns over the bottom line keep you from lending an ear to the most appreciable asset you have ń your people. Economic tides come and go, but your team members are the constants that make it all happen.
-Doug Dickerson
Power Surge ń No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

KISS -Keep it simple stupid
Power Point ń It is a simple task to make things complex, but a complex task to make them simple.
Meyer’s Law
Power Though ń Simplicity is one of the virtues that I appreciate more than most. Much time and resources are wasted because of a poor leader who got mired down in making the simple complex. Free your people from the tyranny of urgent and turn your team loose to do what they do best. Keep it simple and everyone’s happy.
-Doug Dickerson
Power Surge ń Everything should be make as simple as possible, but not one bit simpler.

Ask the right questions
Power Point ń You want to know what you’re really selling? Don’t tell your customers. Ask them. The journey to seeing the world through your customers’ eyes begins with a single question.
Alan M. Webber
Power Thought ń The danger of any business is that of losing touch with the customer. The four walls of the office can be the most destructive space of any company if not careful. Seeing the world through the eyes of the customer requires one thing ń being with the customer and asking the right questions.
Doug Dickerson
Power Surge ń Only the curious will learn and only the resolute overcome the obstacles to learning.

Keep the vision alive
Power Point ń Your job as leader is to make the vision happen in real life in your organization, driving it forward beyond the paper.
Hans Finzel
Power Thought ń Your vision as a leader will not be attained if you don’t keep it before your people and have a plan to achieve it. In order to make it come true you must share it, live it, breathe it, and excite others about it. When people believe in you they will buy into your vision.
-Doug Dickerson
Power Surge ń Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.
