“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” — Ronald Reagan
Leaders have to be bold and honest. They have to balance between being kind and being stern. They have to act fast but yet take their time.
Great leaders are not afraid to be judged based on their team performance. They welcome evaluations based on the results that they deliver and the number of people they impact.
“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. — Max Depree

Brene Brown defines leadership in terms of courage. She states that a true leader is a person who believes…
I immigrated to the United States of America a little over 20 years ago, and I had very few role models in my life, so I turned to books to guide me on my journey.
I started to read books for Jim Rohn, John Maxwell, Stephen Covey, Tony Robbins. I also started to observe what successful people do and reverse engineer their success.
Using these strategies, I graduated with my MBA, led a health department, and built a profitable business. I accomplished a lot, but I wasn’t 100 % happy. I wanted to mentor others and help them succeed.
This year, I’m committed to finding and reading all of the best books I can find.
This is a list of the best business books that I read in the last 12 months, and tens of millions of people have read them.
The ideas in these books helped millions of people start and grow their businesses. I’m confident that these books will help you work smarter, lead better and reclaim your freedom.
If doctors were as incompetent running their operating rooms as we run our meetings, most patients would be dead.
As a leader of a local health department, I can relate to the above statement. In the last few years, I attended 1000s of unproductive meetings that led to no results. However, during the pandemic, I had to develop a framework to run better meetings that lead to tangible outcomes that can help our communities.
The irony of my framework, it decreased the number of meetings that I attend by 90%. …

At that moment, I indulged myself in research, books, and seminars to learn more about psychopaths. …

Lance Armstrong was sitting in the same room with Oprah Winfrey, and the audience knew that his legacy was about to be demolished.
There was a yellow candle on his left. Yellow is the color that he made famous by associating it with fighting cancer. This is the man who defeated cancer, overcame all the odds, and won seven Tour de France, but he could not resist the temptation of cheating to be few seconds faster than his teammates and his opponents.
His body language was painful to watch, and his eyes were dazed. Nevertheless, he finally confirmed the audience’s…
My friend is a brilliant singer who declines to share his talent because he’s afraid of you. I mean it, YOU.
He is concerned if he shares his talent that people will judge him.
His voice is powerful, soothing, and alluring. He is charismatic, and he engages everyone that listens to him, but you won’t know it. He is afraid to sing in front of other people.
I keep telling him he needs to share his gifts because he should not worry about what anyone thinks of his voice, but he continues to be very hesitant to share his gifts.
