1) Positive PEOPLE. 

Building Strengths—The ‘Who’.

Understand who you are. Identify and play to your strengths to release your full leadership potential. Nurture talent and build top teams by showing you care and by paying attention to what people are good at, not their shortcomings. Be authentic!

2) Positive PURPOSE. 

Personal Mission & Ultimate Vision—The ‘Why’.

Your purpose is to add value to the world and be happy in the process. Strike out on your own meaningful mission by leveraging your unique strengths, values, and passions. Inspire and be inspired by setting your sights on the highest vision for you and your team…and perhaps even achieve the impossible.

3) Positive PROCESS.

Energy Management—The ‘How’.

Manage energy (yours and other people’s) to achieve outstanding feats without running out of steam. Become a Chief Energy Officer (CEO) and set the right example to marshal the collective energy of those you lead. Avoid classic burnout by taking care of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual resources.

4) Positive PLACE.

Success vs Happiness—The ‘Where’.

Follow your heart instead of the rat race to the place where success and happiness are in balance. Happiness breeds success. By putting happiness first, you can learn strategies for positive living that bring meaningful rewards to you and your team, while also delivering bottom-line results. Help others and use your position of authority to make a difference in the world.
