This is a video-based course that has been running for the last 20 years. While the content of the course is based on the company’s own experience, it has been designed to be applicable to anyone in any industry. The lessons and concepts have been honed through experiences in different roles such as a business owner, a director, and a leader.
The fact is that I have been in business for 20 years now and it has been a long ride. I have learned a tremendous amount in the last 20, and there are a lot of lessons I would like to share with others to help them build on their business.
I recently interviewed John D. McGreevy, a professor of management at the University of New Orleans, to get his thoughts on leadership. As the former CEO of an international airline, John was well-versed in the airline industry. He has spent years learning from others who are in the business. He has written extensively about leadership, and I asked him his top ten tips for leaders in the business world.
This book is a personal favorite for me. Not only does it focus on my own experience in leadership, but it offers insight on how to be a good leader and how to influence others. I definitely recommend this book for anyone who is interested in leadership and how to influence others.
I’ve had a lot of experience in the trenches, so I know how frustrating it is when you think you have it all figured out after a while. But the truth is that you’ve only been in the trenches for 20 years. You’re not a seasoned veteran who knows how to take a bad situation and turn it into a good one. That’s why you need my practical business wisdom.
I have been in the trenches of business for 20 years now. I have seen the ups and downs. I have seen the highs and lows. And I have learned a lot from all my experiences and the things that I have learned along the way.
Many of the greatest leaders on earth were once just average individuals struggling to make it in the business world. It’s why the CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, was so famous for being a “maverick”—someone who makes a point of not making anyone else feel bad about the business decisions they make.
I wrote this piece for the first time a few years ago when I was working my way through the leadership training program. I remember thinking: I can do this! I will take the lessons learned on the field to the boardroom. I will be able to walk in the shoes of a successful business leader.
In our quest for practical business wisdom, we’ve been toying with the idea of having a formal training program for a while now. We were going to start it in the summer of 2012, but with the economic crisis, and the fact that we were just getting started, we decided to postpone it a few more years. Now, our time is finally up, and we’re ready to get down to business.
