Big Lie #3 – Survival of the Fittest
Survival of the Fittest means Survival of the Strongest – right? The actual observed success model is cooperation and collaboration in focused, harmonic effort.
“The world we are in now requires revolutionary approaches. We need board members that are courageous enough to move forward in uncharted territory, leaders who are clear about purpose and willing to let go of programs in favor of new opportunities. Leaders need to be willing to embrace efforts for which success may not be defined and outcomes are not guaranteed.”
— Angela Blanchard, President and CEO, Neighborhood Centers Inc
We address how to do this in our radio program this week. Our guest in this episode is Ron Stebelton, professional educator and certified success coach. He shares his approach on goal achievement. Ron presents the basic concepts that are found in his new book: From Surviving to Thriving in 30 Days. Ron presents a solid structure for goal achievement in any situation. We also examine how Andrew Carnegie became a huge success in business and philanthropy by applying one basic process in all his endeavors: collaboration with groups of experts.
Are you ready to move from surviving to thriving? Want to move donors to action? Do you question whether that can even happen “in this economy”?
If these questions are at the front of your mind, and if you are willing to test the “uncharted waters” Angela Blanchard spoke of, then you are ready to join a Mastermind Group to explore the possibilities.
