If you learned them from a book, share how you personally related! I don’t want just a quote from an avatar, I want to hear your story! So here are the full rules:

I also will be picking my favorite story out of all the entries and will do a one on one, marketing consultation with them. You have 7 chances to win, this is your chance to share your story with me and the rest of the world!

2 Examples of how I learned Effective Leadership Skills

My first example came when I was a project manager for Collier County government. My boss, Maggie Bowles, who I love dearly, taught me one of the most effective leadership skills I could ever be taught. She said, “If you want something done, you have to be willing to give someone else the credit”. It still rings so powerfully when I think about it. It really teaches two powerful lessons. One is to know what you want and the other is focusing on what you want rather than getting credit makes you very powerful.

My second example came from Jack Welch’s book, Straight from the Gut. I also learned this when I worked for county government. He said, Across the board increases or decreases shows a company’s inability to address weakness. Interesting thing is when I read that they had just given a 12% raise to everyone in my department. So, the people that sharpened pencils all day got the same increase as people that were seriously busting their butt. You can also see the flipside in today’s economy. When the board of a major company takes a 10% across the board decrease, you can bet that not everyone deserved it. When you don’t differentiate, as Welch is suggesting, you lose your best and keep your worst.

Why am I doing this giveaway?

That’s simple, I am a student of leadership. I work with a family of marketers around the world and I am constantly striving to get better. When I have the chance to hear real stories, highlighting effective leadership skills that touched, moved or inspired you, that pumps me up and teaches me how I should better mold myself.


Thanks for reading and Good Luck! Hope you are one of the lucky 7 winners!
