This up-close, in-the-trenches account lets readers know what Dan has seen, and in some cases, caused to happen, in a variety of businesses. Those who see leadership as a burden should skip this book. But for those who want to reframe leadership responsibilities and leverage opportunities, this is a “must” for their office bookshelves.”

The Great Escape Revisited

JackEarlier this week, you may have read the tale of the great escape as told by the escapee, Captain Jack. The dude showed he’s still got game when it comes to getting unleashed – or in this case running with the leash still secured to him. He explained the extra “baggage” kept him from being able to fully maximize his agility and nimbleness, so he was quickly corralled by yours truly.

All that being said, one can learn a few post-event from his response.

Although being scolded, Captain Jack showed no remorse. He trotted home accepting the fact that his adventure was short-lived; he drank up the entire bowl of water; went to the window to get a full stretch, and then settled in for a much deserved nap.

Very often, when we humans fail at some attempt at a new opportunity – maybe it was a sales call, an interview, a misunderstanding, or just a good attempt that went awry – we allow that failure to become “leashed” to us for hours, days, months, or even years.

Dogs have it figured out better. They chalk up failure to happenstance or serendipity and just move on. They are seeking out that next smell; or that next opportunity. Wasting time on failures means you just might miss that next chance for success.

Take it from dogs – Be bold and courageous and do your best. If it works, great. If you fail, then you’ve learned something. If you walk away from failure without having learned something and improving yourself, then the failure wins. If you walk away from failure and let it stick around and rent space in your brain, then it wins again. The only way you win is to dump the leash and be free to check out new smells and new opportunities to run.

Unleashed Leadership NOW Available!

Unleashed_LeadershipGreat news!

I’ve confirmed with my publisher (Kitsap Publishing) that my brand new book, Unleashed Leadership, is now available for pre-order. Click here to order

Here’s what you need to know…

The book is aimed at executives, entrepreneurs, business leaders, sales professionals and anyone that wants to accelerate growth in their careers and enrich their lives.

Unleashed Leadership, Maximizing Talent and Performance by Opening the Gates of Opportunity provides a realistic and clear game plan on how to live a more fulfilled, rewarding life.

As the economy becomes more global and we see more generations staying in the workforce as both employees and entrepreneurs, the number of people that will need to get help in being pushed out the gate will be immense. This book will provide insight, guidance, best practices, perspective, inspiration and strategy for every age, industry, and role.

The book includes:

  • Tools, tips, and tactics on improving the most critical leadership skills of language, public speaking, influential writing, and dealing with people.
  • Case studies of the good, the bad, and the ugly to highlight the key learning objectives.
  • Ideas on how to leverage technology to enhance relationships, increase discretionary time, and add value to their life.
  • Strategies on how to transition away from destructive self-talk to a positive, enthusiastic, and sustainable way to live a life.

As you know, my pal Captain Jack helped me write this book. In fact, he’s got his own special section at the end of each chapter. I guess he always gets the last word.

When you pre-order before the release in October, you will be the first to get your books sent out AND each book will be personally signed by me.

How to Acquire Clients

As I go longer into my career as a consultant, it becomes clearer to me how important professional development and education is to my success.  I just finished re-reading Alan Weiss’ book “How to Acquire Clients” (to purchase from Alan’s web site, click here).

Acquiring new clients takes strategy.  It’s based on win-win situations.  It’s a win for your client when you can help them to improve whatever it is they need.  It’s a win for you from both a financial and professional aspect.  If you don’t take the time to learn the right skills and strategies to acquiring clients, you will end up wasting time, wasting energy, and losing money.  But, if you work through the correct process, you and your clients will reap the rewards of having an improved condition.

If you want to learn how to acquire new clients for your consulting practice, check out Alan’s book.  It gets an A+ grade from me! 



P.S. Another important skill in becoming a successful consultant is presentation skills.  Check out my web site at to see how I can help you become a more dynamic and influential business presenter.
