What's your offering?

There’s a market for anything

"There's a market in my party for people if you say that [President] Obama’s not born in America -- that he's actually born in Kenya -- there are people who want to believe that,” he said.

“If you said [former President George W.] Bush was a war criminal or he's stupid, there's a market for that on the other side," Graham later added.

On what Trump offers the party, Graham argued that "he's appealing to fear and prejudice, and there's a market for that." But he said he believes that is not good for the country, even though there may be a "market" for it.

What I got from above:

People looks for leadership: You gotta offer hope, addressing their concerns, giving out drinkable water. If you don't, they drink sand as water.


What's your offering?

 

"People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision." — John Maxwell

Dear :

Leadership What is leadership? We all have our own spin on the concept, but we probably could all agree on it when we see it.

Earlier in the summer, we had a sensational Master Class by leadership and management expert Eduardo Braun. As Director of the HSM Group, he's curated hundreds of events across the world, assembling the world's top business, innovation and leadership thought leaders on stage to share their ideas.

The class, The Five Key Aspects of Great Leadership, really hit home for me. As president of a company and a father, I have spent a considerable amount of time reading and contemplating what it means to be a leader and how to do it well. This class outlined far better than I ever could the key roles of leaders, and Braun did an excellent job articulating what I consider the most elusive of the leadership roles: creating a healthy culture. I thought I'd share what I took from the class here for you, and I encourage you to view the program yourself. It's available at no cost to Platinum members.

The five keys to leadership according to Braun:

  1. Have a vision: To establish that vision one must know his own talents.

     
  2. Cherish people: Find their talents and keep the passion for their work alive.

     
  3. Communicate: Foster talking and listening. As Kip Tindell said, "Communication IS leadership."

     
  4. Make decisions: To do it consistently well over time, you've got to have a system.

     
  5. Nurture a healthy culture: Leaders create cultures and culture multiplies results. Culture is typically thought of as values and beliefs. It's not about job descriptions and processes. Culture is everything which creates a sense of purpose, passion, hope, a sense of community, self-confidence, trust, self-esteem, pride, happiness, engagement, etc. Companies that rank high on the Great Places to Work list perform 2x better, provide 2x the returns, experience 65 percent less turnover, and have happier people. It is foundational for organizational success. Some of the world's greatest minds in leadership are of a similar mind:
     
  • "Culture is more important than strategy." –Tony Hsieh
     
  • "The only thing that can explain differences in performance is culture." –Carlos Brito
     
  • "Culture is not part of the strategy, it IS the strategy." –Jim Collins
     
Great leaders strive to appreciate and embody the merits of these aspects of successful leadership. They are people with vision who cherish the people they work with and consistently make good decisions for the good of the company — and all the people who work there — communicating openly and honestly. The great leaders actively find ways to ignite their people's passions for what they are doing and nurture a healthy culture, building a culture of happy people who feel passionately about the work.

Very few companies have a culture plan. Leaders rely on their values and beliefs. Leaders don't have a checklist of who they are and for their leadership; they rely on their beliefs to see them through the hard times. Most don't fully understand how their emotions can rile up the emotions of others and set the tone for an entire organization. But there must be a match between brand identity and culture and leadership is a personal journey. Being in a positive state of mind in thought and speech can make all the difference.

There is power in questions. The questions a leader asks greatly influences reality. There are five key questions that will allow leaders to see the reality behind the hard variables... inside the people.

  1. What is the dream? Ignites the passion and aligns the efforts. Unifies a sense of purpose.

     
  2. Do you deeply care for your people? Deeply and genuinely care for them. You can't fake it.

     
  3. Are you connected with your people? Lead with your heart, and let them see the real you.

     
  4. Are you empowering your team? Provide clear goals, needed resources and back-up.

     
  5. Are you proud, engaged and happy? "A team is really a state of mind, and an individual is a state of mind." –Jorge Valdano
     
Asking these questions of yourself, regularly, one per day and truly taking the time to answer them, over and over again, will help anyone become a leader who will be effective, grow revenue, and be someone people will want to work with. This will not happen tomorrow! But if you follow these principles and ask yourself one of these questions each day, you will become the best leader you can be.

To your next success!

Lindsey Graham: Donald Trump 'Selling Fear and Prejudice'

Lindsey Graham might thank Donald Trump for getting him to finally buy a new phone, but the South Carolina senator said today he still doesn't think the Republican Party should "hire" the real estate mogul as its presidential candidate.

Graham made national headlines last week when he destroyed his old-school cell phone after Trump read the number aloud on national TV, but Graham had more just jokes for his opponent in the race for GOP presidential nomination.

Speaking exclusively with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on "This Week," the senator said he sees great dangers in continuing to support Trump, the current Republican frontrunner in the polls.

"I would ask the Republican Party why most major companies are firing Mr. Trump, and I don't think we should hire him," Graham said.


 


 


 


 


 


 

"I'm not taking on voters, I am taking on an idea that I think he's appealing to the dark side of American politics," he added. "He is not offering solutions to hard, complicated problems. He is basically selling fear and prejudice."

Graham said he believes there’s a market in both political parties for candidates who say "outrageous" things.

"There's a market in my party for people if you say that [President] Obama’s not born in America -- that he's actually born in Kenya -- there are people who want to believe that,” he said.

“If you said [former President George W.] Bush was a war criminal or he's stupid, there's a market for that on the other side," Graham later added.

On what Trump offers the party, Graham argued that "he's appealing to fear and prejudice, and there's a market for that." But he said he believes that is not good for the country, even though there may be a "market" for it.

Graham acknowledged that, despite his petition to the RNC to allow all 16 candidates a place on the debate stage, his standing in national public opinion polls likely will not earn him a spot in the first televised Republican debate on August 6. Still, Graham appeared hopeful about his plan to win over primary voters.

“I'm going to talk to people in Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina about the threats we face, why I’m the best qualified to be commander-in-chief,“ Graham said. “And why Mr. Trump, while he says a lot of controversial and loud things, is not qualified to be commander-in-chief, and he cannot win an election that we cannot afford to lose,” he added.

A notorious flip-phone devotee, Graham -- who said first on "This Week" he has upgraded to an iPhone after Trump announced his cell phone number to the world -- said he did have one thing to thank The Donald for.

“Donald Trump's done something my staff could never get me to do, and that's get a new phone - so thanks, Donald,” he joked.

It’s official: Sen. Lindsey Graham has a new cell phone.

"I don’t know if I'm going to email, but I do have an iPhone," the 2016 Republican presidential candidate, who previously said he’s never sent an e-mail before, told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” Sunday.

A notorious flip-phone devotee, last week the senator destroyed his old-school phone after primary opponent Donald Trump read the cell number aloud during a televised speech before a crowd in Graham’s home state of South Carolina.

"Donald Trump's done something my staff could never get me to do, and that's get a new phone -- so thanks, Donald," Graham joked.

But Graham had far more than just jokes for his GOP rival Trump. The GOP senator stated his case against the reality star hotel mogul, underscoring what he says are the great dangers of continuing to support Trump, the current Republican frontrunner in the polls.

"I would ask the Republican Party why most major companies are firing Mr. Trump, and I don’t think we should hire him," Graham said.

"I’m not taking on voters, I am taking on an idea that I think he's appealing to the dark side of American politics," he added. "He is not offering solutions to hard, complicated problems. He is basically selling fear and prejudice."

On what Trump offers the party, Graham argued that "he's appealing to fear and prejudice, and there's a market for that," adding that it’s not good for the country, despite the "market" being in place.

Graham acknowledged that, despite his petition to the RNC to allow all 16 candidates a place on the debate stage, his standing in national public opinion polls likely will not earn him a spot in the first televised Republican debate on August 6. Still, Graham appeared hopeful about his plan to win over primary voters.
