The “3Cs” in Developing Leaders

September 28, 2023

by Ray Blunt

Often the question comes up, “So where do you begin in growing new leaders?” As people often say when put on the spot, “That is a really good question-I’m glad you asked.” So what’s the answer? Personally, I think Jim Collins gets it right (on another topic) when he says “first who then what.” I’ve come to a very deep belief that leaders grow leaders.

CG Podcast #002 - Napoleon Hill’s Law of Success Podcast Series #01 - The Master Mind

Alright, we are about to embark on a journey of vast knowledge. I have had the two volumes by Napoleon Hill called “The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons” sitting on my desk for many months. The 1600+ pages loom large in my mind, but I have set upon to conquer the pages… and in doing so, we will share some thoughts about each lesson in a weekly podcast.

by Stephen Shapiro

I recently discovered a new Google offering, Google Trends. Type in a word or phrase, and it will show you a graph of how often that expression is searched (as a trend, not as actual volume). More interestingly, it will tell you where in the world the expression is most frequently searched. Americans like to think that they are the center of the innovation world. But if Google Trends is correct, we are not even on the map. During 2006, the top 10 regions of the world where the word “innovation” was searched are:

1. Singapore
2. Denmark
3. Malaysia
4. India
5. South Africa
6. South Korea
7. Ireland
8. Norway
9. Australia
10. New Zealand

When we look at a certain object, a painting for example – we won’t be able to appreciate what’s in it, what is painted and what else goes with it if the painting is just an inch away from our face. But if we try to take it a little further, we’ll have a clearer vision of the whole art work.

We reach a point in our life when we are ready for change and a whole bunch of information that will help us unlock our self improvement power. Until then, something can be staring us right under our nose but we don’t see it. The only time we think of unlocking our self improvement power is when everything got worst. Take the frog principle for example –
