Are You a Leader Worth Following?

Leaders err when they believe someone should follow them simply because they’re the boss; because they have a leadership title. Yes, people will comply with this sort of “I’m the boss” leadership to keep their paycheck and job, but they only commit to leaders worth following. If you are a positional leader who is hung up on a title, here is a humbling perspective:A title doesn’t make you a leader; it simply buys you time to become one.It’s a foolish notion to believe anyone has been made more…See More

You Can’t Make People What They’re Not!

Posted on May 27, 2014 at 2:23pm 7 Comments

One of the most helpful lessons I’ve learned, applied and taught clients concerning developing others is this: I can help make you more of what you are, but I can’t make you something you’re not. There are key and critical success factors you cannot change about others; nor can you teach them to others. If you have people on your team lacking these traits the time, training, and motivational efforts you…

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your acceptance.

I was at the AutoCon luncheon when you spoke and being a man who rarely says no to good food, I stopped my meal took out my notebook and began taking notes. Upon my return and reading them, I thought maybe there was a video of the event or a presentation I could acquire. The speach was one that our dealer principal and others must here or see. If you can or cannot assist me thank you for a wonderful enlightening speach.

Hi Dave,

I had the pleasure of hearing you a few years ago in Seattle WA at a Chevrolet SeaFair kickoff brunch sponsored by the Puget Sound Chevrolet Dealers. I transcribed my notes of your meeting and shared them with ownership. I found your presentation to be information rich, comprehensive, practical and most important founded in core values and principles. Thank you for your contribution to my life as well as the auto industry.

Hope all is well in your world. Take care
