    "When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”  — Kennedy Family Motto

    Many problems bedevil us. We face rejection, job loss, lost friends and love ones, but still we must go on. In psychology, resilience is the capacity of people to cope with problems, issues, and catastrophes. 

    Underlying all success is the mental toughness to overcome defeats, losses, problems, obstacles, mistakes, the critics, the naysayers, the pessimists, the complainers, and those who say it can’t be done. The fundamental truth: nothing rolls down the hill until after it has been pushed up the hill. 

    Anything worth doing, is going to be difficult. 

    And since most everyone will face difficulties at some point of life, it is important to understand how resiliency works and how mental toughness can be enhanced.

    Learning Objectives

    • What resilience is — what it isn't
    • What it takes to increase your mental toughness
    • Why all great success rests on a foundation of resilience
    • The nature of control in achieving success — both internal locus and external.
    • How not to respond to adversity—the trap of learned helplessness.
    • Take assessments, perform exercises and do application assignments

      "The door of opportunity frequently opens for those best prepared to walk through it." — Murray Johannsen

      Success is more than just living in the present. Some people have dreams, but few have vision. Some simple live in the present, but others use the present to prepare for the future.

      For example, birds live in the moment, but squirrels use the moment to prepare for the future. Birds exists day-to-day, squirrels store food in the summer for winter. And so it is with people.

      This module covers essential elements needed to stimulate foresight and construct a vision.


      Create Vision — Activate Imagination

      Learning Objectives:

      • Develop the information sources for a robust program of environmental scanning.
      • Develop a deeper understanding of foresight
      • Practice developing a vision for your future.

      "You cannot manage men into battle. You manage things; you lead people."  Grace Hopper, Admiral, U. S. Navy (retired), Nova ( PBS TV), 1986

      To succeed you have to play two roles on the stage of business: manager and leader. For these two roles you want to be a star, a bit player.

      Yet many b-schools fail to clearly distinguish between these two vital roles. On the play of life, you are stuff with an ambiguous role. These professors typically say that leadership is just a small subset of management (called directing), and that people want to be managed. Such a lie. People don't want to be managed; but if you lead them, they will follow you anywhere.

      The truth is, both roles are critically important ones for success in business and government. People need someone to lead them, just as much as they need an effective manager. 

      Yet, too many suffer under incompetent managers and leaders who simply are bosses who throw their authority around. 

      But there is a huge difference between functioning as a manager and acting like a leader. You can't lead people the same way you would manage time, resources on the balance sheet or expenses on an income statement. 

      Discover what these are. Find out more about how to play each role so you too can be a star on the stage.

      Learning Objectives

      • Know the major functions, skills, and responsibilities associated with functioning as an effective manager.
      • Discover the major focus areas and behaviors associated with being an effective leader.
      • Dispel your confusion — understand the fundamental differences between being a leader and a manager.

      "Managers have subordinates—Leaders have followers." — Murray Johannsen

      Grow Your Social Capital

      Not growing social capital is a hug mistake—like not saving for retirement, Sure you need to be competent but who you know matters. And have a large network matters when it comes to getting work.  

      For example, International and national business was much more difficult and expensive—fruitless hours prospecting, sitting in a planes cars and hotel rooms. Now you can generate national and international leads sitting at home.

      Today you may still have to travel, but you are traveling to meet someone who already knows you. More importantly, the issues of trust and credibility have been sorted out prior to the face-to-face.
