Actionable Leadership

The name of this blog is Actionable Leadership. My mission is to provide you what I am learning for myself and from others about people and how they reinvent themselves.

What I offer are insights, strategies, and approaches to learning, living, and leadership that works.

This blog is for managers, supervisors, and every workplace professional. This is also for entrepreneurs and for those who are making lives out of the workplace.

This is also for my son JC. Someday, he’ll read me.

LEADERSHIP INSIGHTS

Leaders ideas I have learned through experiences and from others.

Create  a Sense of Urgency

Create a Sense of Urgency

Twenty five years ago, there were two newspaper boys. Both were born to poor families and both had parents who did not have college education.

They were selling newspapers to support their families.

Dodong, the younger and smaller one, couldn’t compete for customers against Toto who was older and bigger. Toto ran faster. He offered discounts. And he convinced customers to pay him only during pay days.

Five years ago, these two met again on that place where they used to wait for customers.

Two important jobs of Filipino motivational speakers

Two important jobs of Filipino motivational speakers

A motivational speaker has two jobs: push you to dream bigger and to encourage you  to make your dreams real.

The motivational speaker tells stories so you can see yourself from those who became successful. In his stories, he shows you that every successful person is somewhat like you. Or that you are in reality in a better position and is more capable of achieving whatever you want in life.

LEARNING EXPERIENCES

I encourage that when you decide to develop leaders, go beyond classroom training. And you are getting this advice who makes a living as a corporate trainer. I am going against the tide. This is why I am using this blog to show people what learning experiences can do to multiply the impact of your interventions.

My goal is not to train people. No, it is far from that. What I want is for them to learn new behaviors that will make them successful in whatever they do in life. Yes, I talk about mindset. But my aim is to show you, based on my researches and experiences, the behaviors that we need to become successful.

PERSONAL EXCELLENCE

You can get what you want in life while helping others succeed. These posts discuss doable steps on personal mastery, professional development, financial managers, career planning and promotion, productivity, stress management, and time management. I write not as an expert but as someone who shares what I learned for myself and from others.

How to Become Indispensable

How to Become Indispensable

During the last talk I gave, someone asked for some strategies he can use to get himself promoted faster. I thanked him for his courage to ask that question which almost everyone wanted to ask but never did. Filipinos don't ask this of questions in public, most specially when bosses are around.

My simple answer: be linchpin. Be indispensable.

In this post, I will show you how to do that.

Do one great thing at a time.

Do one great thing at a time.

A to-do list is a good thing. However, a to-do list with ten, twenty, or thirty items is overwhelming. It is a sure template to daily failures and frustrations. Because there is not enough time to do all things . And all things aren't equal.

To believe that your reason for breathing another living minute is to accomplish a to-do list is one big mistake my friend. You decide what should be in that list.

You decide which one you must do now. And this is another way of saying that you decide which you must not do now.

If today were your last, what would you do?

Live this day as if it were your last.

Live this day as if it were your last.

How old are you now? Do you think that you still have fifty, forty, thirty, twenty, ten, or five years to live? Do you think you'll get to 100 years old – and get 100,000 pesos from the government?

I hope to live until I am 100. I hope to live healthy, strong and evergreen. I hope to live wealthy and wise each day of my life for so many years that there is no time to get tired of living.

I am a serial entrepreneur. I failed so many times — and a large part of these “failures” have something to do with leading B-players. My aim is to develop my skills in building a tribe — and share with you what I am learning.

LEAD BOLD AND BRAVE

Leadership is more than having a title and position. Here, I am sharing with you practical ideas to become better leaders — and to build others to become better leaders.

I am convinced that there are many ways to lead people. And the first step to becoming a better leader comes with understanding oneself and others. We begin empty. And we develop our empathy.

Personality vs Personal Development

Personality vs Personal Development

The confusion is not only in the meaning but also on what is more meaningful.

This is why many speakers offer personal development when they are actually talking about personality development.

And training associates look for a personality development speaker when what the boss really wanted is a personal development speaker.
