leadership-ppt-090825073418-phpapp01-thumbnail-3So you are looking at home internet businesses because you want a way to earn extra money. What many people fail to realize is the top tier opportunities will make you a Leader. By ‘make’ I mean you will be seen as one by the people you recruit whether you view yourself as a Leader or not.

I believe that great Leaders are made and not born. So the good news is that in work from home careers you can make yourself a great Leader. Wess Roberts in his business book classic, The Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun explains the principles he believes great Leaders need to live by. Wess is a genius at using a real historical figure and real facts known about him and spinning them into today’s world for us to use.

Attila the Hun is a much misunderstood ruler principally because he came so close to ruling large parts of Western Europe. The Romans viewed him as a barbarian. Actually he was less barbaric than the Romans who threw Christians to the lions; he was also far less cruel than Ivan the Terrible, Cortes or Pizzaro.

Debunking The Myths Of Online Management Courses

Today I have something different for you, I want to talk to about a distance-learning course, you are sure to come across various kinds of advice. Some will tell you it is a great idea while others would say it is just a waste of time. How do you separate the misconceptions from the facts? Here is a quick glance at the common misconceptions.

These courses are completely different from traditional ones.

Effective Communication – A Great Leadership Skill

johncmaxwell383606Effective communication is one of the greatest skills a great leader can have. In fact, communication is your ‘bread and butter’, and it is because so many involved in this market fail to see this, they themselves eventually fail. To effectively communicate you must ensure your message is understood, and the only way you can check that is to ask for feedback on your performance.

If all you do is ’speak at’ your team and then don’t invite questions you are either a) pontificating and showing off your knowledge, b) insecure and cannot deal with feedback in case it is negative or c) engaged in a rousing exercise or information giving exercise.

Both these latter two can be much more effectively done by a Newsletter type approach. There is nothing worse than spending an hour being on a webinar than to hear it end with, well that’s the end of today’s call unless there are any questions.
