Professional Development Programs & Why Some of it Disgusts Me…

By Nathan R Mitchell MBA I am a big proponent of lifelong learning and professional development. To be honest, it’s how I make my living as a business and leadership development coach. With that in mind, the intent of this article is not to undermine professional development in any way, or its necessity in both personal and organizational development. I’ve personally witnessed the impact it often has on individuals and organizations alike that are both committed to it, and who buy-in to the process. When engaged in properly, professional development can be life changing, and can have huge impacts on… Read More

20 misused English words that make smart people look silly

July 31st, 2016 by Purpose Unlimited As Dr. Travis Bradberry suggests in his article, 20 Misused English Words That Make People Look Silly, we’re tempted to use words we’re not too familiar with. He also mentioned that if this were the only problem, he wouldn’t have much to write about. Herein lies the problem: it’s the words we think we’re using correctly that cause us challenges. We throw them around regularly in meetings at the office, in the e-mails we write, and in important documents. The bad news is, we can look silly, or even dumb. For the reader, “they… Read More

Why Nice Bosses Finish First

July 31st, 2016 by Purpose Unlimited Many bosses (not leaders) assume that in order to be effective they must be tough on their employees. For one reason or another, perhaps cultural norms have led them to believe that looking “soft” will decrease employee motivation and respect for them overall. From my personal experience, I’ve found the opposite to be true. According to Dr. Travis Bradberry, author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0, “When it comes to success as a leader, radically tough leadership styles are exceptions to the rule, not the rule.”  Furthermore, in a recent article of his entitled, Why Nice… Read More

Teach Your Team to Expect Success

July 30th, 2016 by Purpose Unlimited Great leaders expect success. In fact, that’s one of the things that helps them obtain it. In a recent article published in the Harvard Business Review, research shows that leaders who have high expectations tend to work harder and commit to overcoming organizational challenges. The interesting this is, great leaders also desire the same level of expectations from members of their teams; however, the answers to getting them to think in the same way are not always clear. With that in mind, Christina Curtis, reflected on her coaching engagements with more than 1,500 people,… Read More

What Great Listeners Actually Do

July 30th, 2016 by Purpose Unlimited If you’re like most people, you probably think you are a good listener; however, much like many of the things we think we’re good at, our personal assessment of ourselves may not be a true reflection of our actual ability. In a recent article by Jack Zenger and Joseph Folkman, these two author compare and contrast what the average person believes good listening is, versus what being a good listener really means. As the authors suggest, most people think good listening comes down to doing three things: Not talking when others are speaking Letting… Read More

It’s time to declare our independence…again

By Jim Whitt This was originally published in 2012 but the message needs to be repeated until we “get it.” I had to update paragraph four. Our national debt was $16 trillion in 2012 and today it is nearing $19.5 trillion. If you want to know what led to the creation of the United States of America you have to read the Declaration of Independence. The defining statement of this document would have to be: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that… Read More

How to win the talent war…

By Jim Whitt During one 24 hour period I had four interesting conversations. Conversation #1: Someone in a key position with a large retail organization told me how the manager of one their stores came to him complaining about how poorly she is treated by her supervisor and her supervisor’s supervisor. The store manager is doing a good job — she manages their top performing store. The two supervisors’ behavior is a reflection of the CEO’s behavior. The store manager is actively looking for another job. The company spends next to nothing developing their people. Employees are just numbers —… Read More

What Star Wars can teach us about planning for the future

By Jim Whitt “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” That now iconic opening scroll was inspired by Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers, movie serials originally produced during the 1930s and 40s. That was before my time but I watched them when they were rerun on television. So did George Lucas — and watching those serials provided much of the inspiration for creating Star Wars. “Star Wars is built on top of many things that came before,” said Lucas. “This film is a compilation of all those dreams, using them as a history to create a new… Read More

Giving what is most difficult to give: What Doc Lunsford taught me about Christmas

By Jim Whitt The following story about Doc Lunsford was published on December 23, 1991. It remains one of my favorites. So much so that I decided to make it a tradition and share it with our subscribers each Christmas. At a time when Christmas seems to have lost much of its meaning in our hectic lives, it is my sincere desire that this story about Doc would remind us of what we are truly celebrating. Have a Merry Christmas and a Purposeful 2016. We called him “Doc” – Doc Lunsford. I never knew how he came by the nickname… Read More

Christmas is all about change, leadership and purpose

  By Jim Whitt Sometimes it’s strange where you find inspiration. My friend Monty Teeter asked me to speak at his company’s Christmas party. I was struggling with what I was going to say when I stumbled onto a quote from a book on project management I was reading. That quote made me think about the birth of Jesus so I’ll start with this passage from the Bible: “After Jesus was born in Bethlehem village, Judah territory— this was during Herod’s kingship—a band of scholars arrived in Jerusalem from the East. They asked around, ‘Where can we find and pay… Read More
