“Customers of successful operations love doing business with them! In fact, customers love doing business with them so much that they will come back again and again simply because they enjoy the experience that they have, even when the products sold are unremarkable.” ~ Tania M Adams

Are you taking responsibility for your own success? Can you make the hard calls? In the business world today we inevitably deal with difficult decisions all the time. A leaders’ inability to make the hard calls can dilute his or her credibility to such an extent that it could be detrimental to the success in their company. It is not about what you know, but do you have what it takes to be a successful leader? A leader who can make the hard calls, gain and keep the respect of those they lead.
A great tool to use is to be in alignment of your vision, and then to serve your word to support your goals. If your energy is focussed on the bigger picture and not the looking good of the moment, it becomes easier to manage your identity when taking responsibility for making the hard calls.
What you put out into the world is precisely what you get back. Not even “kinda, you might get it back”– no, it’s exactly what you get back.
Using his guitar and a simple song that repeated the Arabic word for “sweetheart,” Michael Franti created a bridge between cultures that overcame language barriers and mistrust. Before long, he was followed by throngs of children wherever he went, and local people brought him into their homes, introduced him to their families and shared stories of their daily struggles amid violence, blackouts and shortages that most Americans never get to hear.
Michael took on this journey with no bodyguards, no weapons and no agenda other than listening to what both the Iraqi people and U.S. soldiers had to say. Later, he repeated the experience in Israel and Palestine, a process featured in the documentary I Know I’m Not Alone.

Creating the future of business does not only focus on profitability anymore, but also on developing a new generation of leaders whose objectives include human development. We can simply not do business anymore without including the triple ‘P’ – people, planet and profit. By using Daniel Goleman’s model on Emotional Quotient, smartRevolution designed a workshop aimed at leadership to develop their listening skills and to use a different approach when interacting with sub-ordinates. We added in the basic principles of consciousness and focus on awareness and transformation rather than supply companies with a recipe to use like a shopping list. This proves to be the winning combination to solve the issues that could potentially move a great business model to an award-winning organisation. This 2 day workshop is called Conscious Self-Management for leaders. To get more information on this workshop you can contact Karin de Jager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Following this new approach, companies embark more than ever before on a journey of intervention and coaching to equip the leaders in their organisations with the necessary skill to accomplish this. The benefits they bring to their organisations and to society are immeasurable.
