    A Company Culture No one Leaves and Everyone Wants to be a Part of – Cohesion Culture – Dr Troy Hall

    A Company Culture No one Leaves and Everyone Wants to be a Part of – Cohesion Culture – Dr Troy Hall

    What if you had a had a business where all your people wanted to stay because they loved it so much. In fact it was so good that you never had to really hire anyone because people were running to your door to be a part of what you have going in your business? What does it take to do that? Well it takes a culture. But not just any culture. It has to be such a great culture that people feel that they truly belong.  It is a culture that values every member of your work team.  A culture that is so great in fact that the employees are committed to do the work because they are self motivated because they see their purpose and how they contribute.  They are fully committed.  Sound utopian?  Think again.  Dr. Troy Hall has demonstrated how to make a culture like this work.  It is called Cohesion Culture based on his dissertation and we have the fortune of having him here on A New Direction this week.

    Cohesion Culture is not just another "culture" book.  It literally is a step by step approach that combines the analogies of theater and movies coupled with research that takes you through a 3 Act Play from Leadership, to Culture, to his Talent Retention Model (TRM).  So if you are struggling to keep your talent or finding new talent you will want to get Dr. Troy's book "Cohesion Culture: Proven Principles to Retain Your Top Talent"  You can learn more by reaching out to Dr. Troy Hall by going to his website: drtroyhall.com

    Greater Success by Taking Control of Your Job – Dr Michael Colburn

    Greater Success by Taking Control of Your Job – Dr Michael Colburn

    When it comes to our jobs often we feel powerless.  Sometimes this occurs because when we work for someone else we believe that we do not have any control over our job.  Then there are those who feel stuck in their job, they feel as if they cannot move up or go anywhere.  They blame their boss, blame the management, ,blame the ownership, they blame others in general for their lack of motivation or the reason they are in the place they are.  The fact is if you feel this way you have lost control of your job.  If you want to truly be successful and achieve greater things then you need to "Own Your Job"  and that is what Dr. Michael Colburn will teach you on this episode of A New Direction, and how to take the power back in your job and own it.

    Dr. Colburn, has spent his career working with organization leaders to implement learning and change to improve performance for both the organization and the individual, and that includes you.  Dr. Colburn's book "Own Your Job: Five Tools For Self-Management and Accountability"  is a book that can and will change you and your job if you apply the principles.  It will start you on the journey to understand that you have the power to control your job, control your future, stop blaming, stop complaining, and start growing.    Get your copy of "Own Your Job" by clicking HERE!

    Leadership Lessons from a US Army General – Maj Gen John Gronski (ret’d)

    Leadership Lessons from a US Army General – Maj Gen John Gronski (ret’d)

    When it comes to leadership who better than a U.S. Army general is more qualified to talk about it.  When you have led thousands of men and women in the midst of brutal, volatile, and dangerous combat, and having to take the responsibility of the lives of all those under his command you better demonstrate great leadership.  You not only need to have great leadership knowledge, but you must have characteristics, values, and wisdom that people believe in and want to follow.  Major General John L. Gronski (ret'd) is that person, and we have the honor of having him on A New Direction with his book Iron Sharpened Leadership.

    General Gronski's book is in my opinion the essential must read leadership book that you must have on your book shelf.  The book literally takes you through the building of a great leader.  He divides it into three sections:  Character, Competence, and Resiliency.  It is the foundation of these qualities that he gives us an advanced class in leadership.  "Iron Sharpened Leadership" is practical, pragmatic, will make you think, consider your own values, and will change you.  General Gronski fully understands that to be the best leader you need to continually train all four of the areas of your being, i.e. the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.  The fact is if you are not growing in these areas, you are dying.  "Iron Sharpened Leadership" will encourage you, but more importantly it will change you!  Get your signed copy directly from the General himself by Clicking Here!

    Success Left a Clue – Changing Your Life with Mindset and Action – Robert Riopel

    Success Left a Clue – Changing Your Life with Mindset and Action – Robert Riopel

    How do you go from being in debt to owning franchises, owning property and your own business?  It all starts with changing your stinkin' thinkin'.  Let's face it we all want some sort of success.  Or we would like to have even more success.  And when is comes to success we have a tendency to look outward.  We want to find some "trick", some easy way to find this illusive thing we call success.  The fact is there are no "tricks", there are no "fast tracks", there are no "easy" ways, and there is no "pay for success" course.  The fact is that when you interact with the most successful people in the world, and you keep your eyes open, "Success Leaves a Clue".  And in this episode of A New Direction, Robert Riopel author of "Success Left a Clue" joins us to tell us his "rags to riches" story and give you clues on how you can change the outcomes.

    Robert Riopel book "Success Left A Clue: 6 Life Changing Habits to Achieving Your Dreams While Keeping it Real, Relevant & Repeatable" is a success book on mindset and action.  Let's be honest with each other for a second so often we think of "intentions", "mantras", and "pledges" as a little "new agey" or as Robert Riopel calls it "Wu-Wu".  But wait, we have thoughts everyday concerning our success.  We have doubt, we question, we have cynicism, and sarcasm, but think for a second what if your thoughts were more positive?  What if you shed the doubt?  Could it make a difference?  You have to admit to think more positively and being more positively intentional about your thoughts certainly wouldn't hurt...right?  And if we  practiced getting ride of the doubt and fear and negativity in our mind it certainly would make the world around us better...true?  So if we start with the right mindset, then take action on those positive and productive thoughts, does it not make sense that our lives would be better and more successful?  Of course it does!  It also means that we can better and more positively affect the lives of others!  As it keeps perpetuating we see more clues to success...and so then it is true, "Success Left a Clue".
