I know that many of who read this lead stuff. You give talks, present business plans, educate kids, host groups, coach a team of employees or players, facilitate discussions, etc. I know I am always looking for aids and tools and soundbites to do a better job at this kind of stuff. I read the following thoughts from a book many months ago. I found this helpful and thought I would pass it on. Please remember the following is not to be taken and followed in a vacuum. There are other important factors to consider.

I know that these are intuitive, yet spot on. Three simple guides that I believe really help.
