This message from Sandy Krakowski was in my email this morning. I had to share it with the Grow Forward & Flourish Community because it speaks to what I felt and experienced in my early 20's when my leadership ambitions began to take root in my heart. As I began to progress in my career, there were several folks in the church who felt that my determination to be a leader with Marriott was of the world, despite the fact that since I was a child, I had been demonstrating leadership traits. If I did not have a firm foundation in myself because of the many adversities I had overcome before any of these "people of faith" knew me, I could have easily been influenced by their judgment.
Fortunately, I went on to change my story and help others who worked with me change the story of their lives as they sought after and achieved leadership positions in the companies that I worked with. It takes faith, foresight and fortitude to be able to stand alone when the very people you think should be supporting you don't. You have to continue to believe in yourself and trust that as you take steps of faith, the people who will celebrate your greatness and help you expand its influence awaits you as you demonstrate a passionate determination towards achieving the calling of your soul.
Have you ever noticed that we train people for GREATNESS as the people of God, but when someone starts embracing their greatness, they oftentimes get accused of being filled with vain ambition, worldliness or even sin?
We preach and pray that people will INVADE the marketplace and bring the love of God to the highest places on the mountain of influence... but when God positions people in these places of high influence the religious then start saying the person is no longer safe to be around, are focused more on the world than the church or all other manner of lies from hell?
I recently heard someone preach that Joseph was disobedient when he was buried in Egypt and that this was not the plan of God for him. This was such wrong teaching rooted in religion and tradition. GOD POSITIONED Joseph into Egypt. God HIMSELF made Joseph look like an Egyptian. HE gave Joseph a heart for Egypt. He gave him FAVOR and AUTHORITY and INFLUENCE in EGYPT!
If God raises up someone in Hollywood or Las Vegas or in Washington we must be very very careful what our small soulish mindsets have to say about that.
We teach about marketplace movements and we teach about invading the mountains but when God gives authority, influence and supernatural power (WHICH by the way is the outflow of a mandate from heaven) many will judge such a person by their own small scary world view. They can't comprehend God using a Daniel with a King Cyrus, who not only doesn't seek God, but who GOD has full intention in using.
Cyrus was SUMMONED by God and God said He was going to use King Cyrus for His own glory and His own purpose. Be cautious having an opinion about how that looks in the eyes of men.
When we train our children for GREATNESS please prepare them, empower them and EQUIP THEM to be great, powerful and holy.
Equip them to resist the religious spirit and to learn that the positioning is lonely but it will be RIGHT.
2014.... a NEW generation is rising. Dancers, worshippers, warriors in the marketplace who SHIFT ECONOMIES and will be entrusted with great portions of wealth for the King's glory. Be careful having an opinion about how the hand of God moves.
Prepare your children for Greatness and get out of their way when God brings it!
I believe this message not only applies to our youth, it applies to any one who is making the effort to realize all of their God-given potential. The limitations that we have about life and other people are those set in our own minds. We can't expect a harvest of support from others when we project our limitations on other people's ambitions.

The great courageous act that we must all do, is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can live our dreams.
Our beliefs drive our identity. Our identity drives our behavior. Our behavior drives our outcomes. These simple truths provide us with an awareness of the importance of our beliefs as they relate to realizing our God-given potential and engaging experiences that cause us to feel satisfied about our lives. I’m sure you have heard many messages on the importance of your beliefs such as, “If you believe, you can achieve,” “Nothing is impossible to him that believes,” and “If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will.” Yet, you still struggle with believing in yourself and in your ability to manifest the life experiences you desire. Is it that you continue to doubt yourself because of the curse of knowledge?
What You Know Can Be Causing Your Unhappiness
What do I mean by the curse of knowledge? Consider this, when you are faced with a challenge or opportunity, how often do you consider your past experiences or other people’s opinion before determining your response? It is only natural for us to use our experiences as a gauge for what we believe is possible in our life. However, I argue that our inability to see our experiences with “new” eyes prevent us from realizing the potential that exists within each “new” experience. For example, how many times have you heard that people bring their “baggage” into new relationships? What does this mean? It means that each time one enters a new relationship of any kind, the “new” relationship has to compete with the knowledge of similar experiences. If those experiences were positive then you will embrace “new” relationships with an openness and positive expectation. If on the other hand your experiences were negative, you are more apt to be cautious and have low expectations about the relationship becoming a rewarding experience. The curse of knowledge influences each of us to assume that we know how a relationship is going to unfold, primarily because of our past experiences.
Embrace Life with a Childlike Faith
I’m sure you can look back at your life, just as I can, and recall thoughts that you believed to be true only to find out that what you believed was not true. We’re all guilty of this. How can we embrace “new” experiences with a frame of mind that gives each of them an opportunity to bloom or go bust before we assume that we know how they will unfold? We have to nurture a childlike faith in our heart.
When a child is told something by his parents, he believes it to be so. He accepts their word without resistance because he isn’t operating under the influence of the curse of knowledge. He hasn’t experienced the disappointments, heartache and adversity that cause many adults to develop a pessimistic perspective about life in general. The child gets in agreement with the word spoken by his parents and behave in the manner that reinforces his agreement of what has been told to him.
By no means am I suggesting that you ignore your smarts in discerning the validity of someone’s intentions toward you. A person’s character is not always evident when you meet them. I get that. You have to allow time and their actions to give you a view of their beliefs and how they drive his or her identity and behavior. It is a fact that our beliefs show up in the private conversations we have with ourselves and in our public conversations with others. Our words and actions are a reflection of the “word in our heart” i.e. our beliefs. This is true for each of us.
Curiosity Builds Self-Confidence
We have to be discerning of people motives AND be open to allowing the process of a relationship or any other situation unfold. Our culture promotes a “drive-thru” mentality. If something doesn’t happen quickly in a relationship we begin to lose interest. Some of this has to do with the fact that many of us come from broken homes and we didn’t have the pleasure of witnessing what it takes to build lasting relationships. Many people project their beliefs and feelings about past personal experiences on their professional experiences. This habit can certainly create conflict and confusion in professional settings.
Many people have lost their ability to develop face to face friendships. They feel more comfortable behind a computer screen. They refuse to engage in new experiences where they can meet new people and develop new friendships. When we lose that sense of curiosity we had as a child, our life has a tendency to shrink. We have to be proactive in maintaining our sense of curiosity and dismiss the notion that we are not strong enough to handle whatever life brings. Each of us are stronger and smarter than we give ourselves credit.
Many of the doubts you have about what is possible in your life are rooted in what you assume you know because of previous experiences. And this way of thinking is robbing you of experiences that can enhance your wellbeing. In my previous post, 14 Ways Curiosity Can Increase YourHappiness, I list simple steps you can take to reconnect to the your playful and curious self. You don’t always know what you don’t know. When you begin to make it a habit to embrace life with a childlike faith and a sense of wonder and curiosity, life will open up to you in ways you have yet to experience because you don’t know that it can. It’s only in the living of life, we discover all that we don’t know, and how much more we can enjoy our life.I would like to know what you think. Have you ever felt that knowledge from past experiences prevented you from approaching life with a more open mind and heart? Share your comment below.

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”
Happiness is all in your head. You have to make being happy a priority if you want to experience more of it on a daily basis. Sometimes when we feel that we are unhappy or that our life is "stuck in a rut", it’s simply an indication we need to schedule and engage in new activities. Whenever I feel like my grown up life is draining me of the energy necessary to maintain the momentum necessary for the achievement of my goals and objectives, I put on my “Curious Jackie” hat and participate in a new activity. I am always refreshed by being around new people and doing new things. This ritual has never failed me. As 2013 ends, consider this ritual as one that will provide you the regular shots of natural energy boosters you need to start strong and finish big in 2014.
The following list of actions will cultivate a greater sense of happiness in your life.
1) Practice Gratitude. At the end of each day, keep a notebook of three things that went well on that day and make a note next to each why you are grateful that it happened.
2) Create a Confidence Booster Jar/Box. Purchase a Mason jar or small gift box and label it, “Confidence Booster”. Get a pack of post it’s or cut blank sheets of paper. On each piece of paper write down those times when you overcame an obstacle, bounce back from a setback and accomplished something you were very proud of. Whenever you feel down, feel like you want to give up on yourself or something that's important to you, read one of your notes out loud to yourself.
3) Contribute Value to Others. Contact the volunteer coordinator of a community agency that is creating positive change towards a cause that’s important to you. Inform him or her that you aspire to make a difference in your community and you would like to know how your knowledge and talent could contribute to it's mission. Show up and serve.
4) Exercise Daily. Start today. Commit to exercising at least 20 minutes a day. If daily exercise is a part of your agenda, check into other forms of exercise and engage one that you’ve been interested in but haven’t made the time to find out more about.
5) Reconnect with an Old Friend. Too often, friendships in our childhood and adolescence go by the wayside when we begin to take on adult responsibilities. Make an effort to reconnect with that friend you’ve often wondered about but made no effort to find out where they are and if you are able to reconnect with them.
6) Plan a Potluck Meal with Your Neighbors. How many of your neighbors do you really know? The cordial greetings in the mornings and evenings that takes place between you and your neighbors is nice, however, spending time and getting to know them and building authentic connections creates a stronger sense of community.
7) Embrace Diversity. Attend a cultural event sponsored by individuals of a different race than you. Acceptance, compassion and tolerance of others come with the understanding that each of us, regardless of the color of our skin, are members of the human race.
8) Schedule Date Nights with Your Significant Other. The demands of life don't stop because we want them to. We have to get it in our thick heads that if something or someone is important we have to make time for it in our schedule. It is so easy for couples to get caught up in the doing that they forget to just be with one another. Scheduling date nights help you to maintain the emotional connection necessary for people to feel that their significant other "cares about me" and "gets me". This is important for men and women.
9) Visit a Local Attraction. Why should visitors of your city have all the fun? Look into your local attractions and find one that interest you and your family or friends and schedule a date to visit it.
10) Buy Local. When you support local small businesses in your community, you are helping your neighbors and local schools and strengthening your local economy. Visit an area of local businesses that you are not familiar with and discover the unique talent of your area business leaders.
11) Write a Letter to the Editor. Stand up for something. Don’t live your life in a vacuum. Write a letter to the editor of a community newspaper sharing your voice on a topic of interest to you.
12) Take a Class at Your Local Community College. Engaging the activity of learning from the perspective of curiosity affects your approach to the entire experience. Going into a classroom helps you to sharpen your social and emotional intelligence skills, while the insights gained sharpens your mental intelligence and builds self-confidence.
13) Visit Storytelling Times at Your Local Library. Being around young kids help us to keep life in a proper perspective. The infectious joy that most children possess is contagious. If you’ve lost your sense of curiosity, spend some time with young kids, they’ll help you recapture it.
14) Take a Dance Class. The movement of our body is important to our overall wellbeing. The movement of our body, especially with unfamiliar moves, reminds us of how agile and open we can be. What dance have you’ve always wanted to learn? Check out when the next class begins and register at your local dance studios.

The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you think, what you do is who you become.
In his best-selling book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephan Covey wrote, “If I try to use human influence strategies and tactics of how to get other people to do what I want, to work better, to be more motivated, to like me while my character is fundamentally flawed, marked by duplicity or insincerity then, in the long run, I cannot be successful. My duplicity will breed distrust and everything I do, even using so-called good human relation techniques will be perceived as manipulative.”
In my book, Dare to Lead: Personal Leadership Habits for Workplace Success, I share a story about an incident that happened shortly after becoming a manager with Marriott’s Courtyard division. I was so determined to prove that I deserved the promotion that some of my actions was alienating staff members. When I was called to my GM’s office to discuss a conversation I had earlier with Mary, one of my housekeeping team members, I was confronted with this reality. After apologizing to Mary and my boss, I decided to take it upon myself to initiate one-on-one conversations with each member of my staff. The purpose of these meetings: to discuss with members of my team how I could be a better manager.
Encarta World English Dictionary defines integrity as the quality of possessing and steadfastly adhering to high moral principles or professional standards. In the book, Becoming a Person of Influence, John C. Maxwell and Jim Dorman define the fundamentals of integrity as:
Ø Commit yourself to honesty, reliability and confidentiality
Ø Decide ahead of time that you don’t have a price
Ø Major in the minor things (Be detail oriented)
Ø Each day do what you should so before what you want to do
In the one-on-one conversations I had with Mary and the rest of my team, I had to model the trustworthy behavior that I wanted them to show toward me. So, I approached the conversations with this approach:
Ø I was willing to be vulnerable and open to each person’s feedback.
Ø I had to communicate honestly with each person for us to increase our understanding of one another.
Ø As the leader of the department, I had to take responsibility for creating the change I wanted to experience, so I backed up my commitments made in these conversations with concrete actions that were visible to the staff.
I had a lot of rough edges in my personality when I first became a Marriott manager. There was no doubt in my mind or my boss’s that I could manage the physical and mental demands of the job, however, I needed to expand my emotional and social intelligence skills to succeed in my new role.
Fortunately, I had a boss who was attuned to my development needs. She gave me my first copy of Stephen Covey’s book, which helped me immensely as a first-time manager. I recommend 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to become a book that is read at least once every year by anyone striving to increase their personal effectiveness. I was also given the opportunity to take Dale Carnegie’s Leadership Course which became a catalyst for such a transformation in my leadership style that within a year, I was promoted into a GM’s position in Marriott’s Fairfield Inn division.
I’ve always been appreciative of Mary bringing to light how my tone of speech and behavior negatively affected her. Her honesty not only helped me recognize skills that I needed to develop, it helped me to see the benefits of practicing the STOP, START and CONTINUE framework which became a staple in my management tool box as I navigated my leadership career with Marriott and beyond.
Tune in Prompt: Make a list of positive and negative comments about your behavior by those in your sphere of influence in the past two weeks.
Make the Connection Prompt: Using the fundamentals of integrity identified by Maxwell and Dornan, which, if any of the comments was a reflection of your integrity, the demonstration of, or lack thereof.
Sharing Prompt: Contact a few of the individuals who shared positive and negative comments that you've identified reflect your personal integrity; ask them to share with you how they perceive your trustworthiness and what are some suggestions they have for improving it.
In order for you to be effective in your relationships with others, you have to gather constructive feedback from others. You can’t control everything that others may think about you, yet, you need to know if any of your behavior is creating negative perceptions of you in the minds of others. Once you determine if that is the case, you can take action to expand your emotional and social skills with specific objectives in mind.
If you are genuinely interested in having better personal and professional relationships, people will believe it based on your commitment to a new set of behaviors. If, on the other hand you are trying to manipulate people to believe something about you that isn’t true, sooner or later, they will dictate that as well.
I would like to hear your thoughts on personal integrity and how it influences your personal and professional relationships. Share your comments below.

The function of leadership is to produce more leaders… not more followers.
The job of great managers is to figure out the best way to transform the talent of employees into productive performance. I can attest to the effectiveness of the ten practices outlined in this article. They helped me develop and lead winning teams while working in the hospitality industry. They enabled me to establish an effective approach to building trusting relationships with individual staff members. The effectiveness of my teams to exceed guest expectations on a consistent basis led to my recognition as a “Best of the Best” manager with Marriott’s Courtyard division. I was proud of the distinction. It inspired an empowering identity that provoked me to grow my talent so I could consistently deliver at peak levels. Walking my talk enabled me to have the influence to hold team members to the same standard.
While reading One Thing You Need to Know: About Great Managing, Great Leading and Sustained Individual Success, I realized Marcus Buckingham outlined many of the practices in his book. Finding them in his book reinforced what I believed about their effectiveness two decades ago.
The 10 “Best of the Best” Leadership Habits of Great Managers are:
1. Great managers carry a vivid image of what is possible, and this vision drives him or her.
2. The only way for a great manager to serve the company is to serve the employee first.
3. Great managers are able to influence their employees to believe that their success is his or her primary goal.
4. Great managers recognize people’s improvement – no matter how small.
5. Great managers confront employees whose performance doesn’t match their ability. They don’t allow employees to languish in mediocrity.
6. Great managers don’t cling to his or her chosen route when all evidence suggests it is a dead end.
7. Great managers are inspired, stirred up by the better they envision.
8. Great managers develop their instincts to coach others toward their success.
9. Great managers face the brutal facts of a situation while summoning the faith and optimism to rally people to see and act as if they can envision the better future.
10. Great managers believe they have what it takes to overcome the challenge they will face to forge ahead and manifest their desired reality. They assume they are the one to make the better future they envision possible.
Whether you are aspiring to be a great manager, you are a great manager or a small business owner striving to grow your business by taking on employees or having to outsource tasks related to your business growth and success, the consistent use of the ten practices outlined in this article will increase your effectiveness in building productive and rewarding relationships with others. They will stretch your potential and help you see that you can be more, do more and experience more in your life.

Mindless habitual behavior is the enemy of innovation.
~Rosabeth Moss Kanter ~
As a small business owner, I know the excitement that comes with implementing a service and/or product that you believe will create value in the lives of others. I know what it feels like when business sales don’t happen as fast as I want and feeling overwhelmed by obstacles that seem to delay my ability to manifest my desired reality. The days and the life of a small business owner is not for the faint of heart. The 20+ years I worked in the hospitality industry taught me the importance of professional development and how it actually builds your fortitude to stay the course to realizing goals.
My recent participation in a branding course helped me to see how important it is to re-examine my personal core values and the core values of my business. Taking part in this exercise helped me to see how the actions I was implementing to grow my business were aligned with my personal and business core values and where they were not. And for the primary purpose of the course, identifying the values being communicated by my branding activities. Needless to say, I’ve got to initiate a re-branding campaign.
The insights gained from several exercises during this course led me to make the decision to change the name of my company from the Say So Media Group to Step Into Greatness Training and Consulting. I am currently contacting different service providers regarding costs of services that will help me initiate a rebranding of my business in 2014. Re-examining my personal and business core values led to the insight of how my branding and marketing messages have not represented my passion and sense of purpose for helping organizations deliver legendary service, improve productivity and increase their revenues and profit margins by developing, at all levels, the leadership capacity of an organization.
Prior to this branding course, I’d attended several business meetings and training which sparked memories of specific tasks, responsibilities and experiences about why I was so passionate about business when I worked in the hospitality industry. I realized that outside of my faith in God, developing leadership skills changed the trajectory of my life. I started as a minimum wage worker with Marriott hotels and became an award-winning leader of winning teams and the General Manager of a million dollar plus hotel for the company. After resigning from Marriott, I went on to manage several million dollar restaurant businesses.
Business allowed me to see that leadership is not about a title or authority. Effective leadership influences positive change. It creates paradigm shifts and helps people to see that they are smarter and stronger than they think. It provides opportunities for growth and success. It has the power to elevate the quality of life of those around you. Leadership is critical to the success of our families, businesses, schools and colleges, religious and professional organizations and political affiliations. It is critical to our ability to navigate rewarding relationships and satisfying lives. Effective leadership has the power to change our lives and the world.Re-examining my core values and aligning my actions through the delivery of services and products that reflect my unique ability and experiences helps me to better position my company for growth and success. I can’t control what my competition is doing. I control how I show up and deliver on what I can do best.
Now that I’ve re-examined my personal and business core values and identified my top five values and what they will look like and feel like for my ideal business customers, I am much more enthusiastic about the value my company can contribute in the lives of individuals and organizations.
The year 2013 is coming to an end. We’ll soon be turning this page and moving into the next chapter of our business story in 2014. No better time like the end of the year to go back to the fundamentals of business to ensure you are operating in a manner that is aligned with your personal and business core values. The following five questions are simple and thought provoking. They will help you determine if your present actions represent the fundamentals key to consistently delivering your business core values.
v What is your mission? Why is it that your organization exists in the first place? What are you trying to accomplish for your customers? What are your core values driving your company’s mission? Why are these particular core values critical to your company’s mission?
v Who is your customer? Describe your ideal customer. Describe an ideal work day that you would experience with your ideal customer. Why would your customer be elated over this experience? How does your ideal work day align with your personal and business core values?
v What does your customer value? What is it that you do especially well that you are uniquely suited to provide to your customers? How can you exceed the standards set by your competition? How does your business core values give you a competitive advantage?
v How do you measure success? In what way is your definition for success a representation of your personal and business core values? How will your definition of success translate into value for your customers?
v What is your plan to grow your business? By re-examining the alignment of your personal and business core values, what actions do you need to take reach your desired business outcomes in 2014? What additional knowledge, skills and resources will you need to make this happen? What are the key performance indicators you will use to measure your progress?
Hopefully, these questions will help you reevaluate your business activities so you can determine what you will need to do to win and keep customers. One of the benefits of managing a small business is the fact that you can be flexible in your approach towards the achievement of your desired business outcomes. Focusing your time and energy in areas of strength while outsourcing or delegating those tasks that are not your forte unleashes your mental, emotional and physical energies.
Improving any business performance begins with the effectiveness of its leadership. Your effectiveness in growing your business is largely due to what you choose to do and what you choose not to do. What you choose to do or what you choose not to do reflects your core values.
I’d like to know what you think. How has re-examining your personal and business core values helped you determine which activities you need to fine tune in order to grow your business, in a way that is authentic to you? Share your comments below.
