Leadership by Example: Be a role model who inspires greatness in others
If behavior is contagious, is yours worth catching?
Role models don’t have to be rich, powerful, or famous. They don’t have to be the most attractive, wear the fanciest clothes, or drive the most expensive cars. They are as commonplace as a family member, business colleague, or even the person next door. But they represent someone very special in your life and in the lives of others.
They may be a teacher who changed a student’s life, a coach who helped her players achieve greatness, or even a stranger who went out of his way for a person he didn’t know. They’re spreading cheer, bringing out the best in people, and going out of their way to touch other people’s lives.
People don’t “sign up” to be a role model; others naturally gravitate toward them and look up to them. In fact, you may be a role model to someone and not even know it.You send messages continuously — even if you don’t intend to. And those messages are having a profound impact on people’s lives.
It’s not just what you say, but what you do; when you speak up or when you turn a blind eye; when you’re friendly or when you give folks the cold shoulder; when you hold steadfast to your values or when you give in to temptation.
Ask yourself: What does my attitude say about me? Am I proud of what I do and who I am? Would I be proud if my kids followed my example? Would I want to be friends with myself? If you’re a parent, teacher, coach, religious leader, neighbor, or manager, you’re influencing people every day. You may not be able to change the world, but you can change the world around you.

The Path to a Meaningful Life
Everyone is searching for meaning in life, but few people know how to find it. The problem is that most people are seeking validation from others rather than living a life that makes them proud.
You may be thinking, “Who cares? I’m too busy.” While that’s understandable, if you wait too long to identify the path that’s right for you, you’ll never really know if you’re heading off course. While you’re busy, life happens.
Be remembered for things that matter.
Who are you? What are the values that define you? What mark do you want to make on the world? What legacy do you want to leave behind? If you haven’t answered these questions to discover the real you, it may be time to give them some thought. After all, wouldn’t it be sad to spend your whole life with someone you never really got to know?

How to Improve Performance Through Integrity, Trust, and Commitment
In the turbulent, frenetic, dog-eat-dog times of the past few decades, many believed that the only way to achieve success was to be unscrupulous. Acting like slumlords, corporations let their assets deteriorate by exploiting customers, mistreating employees, and squeezing suppliers. What they overlooked, however, was that their obsession with short-term results significantly damaged their company’s long-term performance as well as its competitiveness. Today, it is more critical than ever to put an end to these short-sighted tactics.
Managing with a Conscience presents a better option for improving long-term success, restoring traditional values, and injecting trust and integrity into all business practices and relationships. This new edition of Managing with a Conscience clearly defines nine factors critical to success. They include building an organization with passion that focuses on major priorities, reinvents itself every day, devotes itself to service excellence, adapts well to change, responds with speed, maintains a flexible structure, taps unlimited resources through networking, and puts integrity back where it belongs, right beside the bottom line.
Managing with a Conscience was written to help reanimate the values that count and to demonstrate how to improve performance through integrity, trust, and commitment.
