I Love Leadership


I love leadership.

I really do. I love learning about it, doing it and teaching it.

And, even if you’re not really sure what real leadership is or looks like, it’s not too hard to perceive when it’s missing.


But I prefer to focus on the positive rather than the negative.

So instead of slamming the leadership inept,

I prefer to learn from, model and raise up great leaders.


Speaking of leadership, I have a GREAT class plan for this Friday!

If you’re in my Blackbelt Leadership program, show up live or join us on the virtual dojo. The class is from 6-7 this Friday.

You are all invited to attend virtually- students, friends, families and all of my tribe who are interested.

And, as an additional service to ensure that virtual attendees have almost as great an experience as those that show up live, I am even going to have a Blackbelt Leader assigned to specifically head a virtual discussion group when the live students break into theirs!


I didn’t have that last time and created it through thought to make things better this time- it’s what we call CANI (Constant & Neverending Improvement) at KMMA!

We’ll even be recording the lesson too.


I will be teaching on The 7 Habits Paradigm of Dr. Stephen Covey and on what it really takes to earn trust.


I hope you will join us!


RSVP at the facebook event here or just join us on the virtual dojo at 6pm Friday!
