We have a plan to help one million managers/owners and their organizations in 2011. We’re confident that to the extent we succeed, we’ll make a big difference to many organizations, their employees, and their families — even the economy! Maybe it will help you, too.

How are we doing this?

We’re giving away our powerful proprietary leadership tool, the Framework for (Enlightened) Leadership™ Worksheet and a 20-minute video on how to use it effectively.

Our goal is to give it away one million times and to invite people to duplicate it, watch the video, and use it all they want. You might be personally familiar with the power of the Framework for:

- turning around struggling projects or groups

-leading organizational change

-aligning dissenting groups toward common goals

-innovative problem-solving

-resolving challenging conflicts

-engaging employees for new levels of effectiveness

-inspiring performance reviews(organizational and individual)

-continuous empowered improvement

-breakthrough negotiation in tough situations

How can you help?

You can help by giving it away physically or by emailing it to key people throughout your organization, to friends who own or manage businesses/organizations, to your associations, to the leadership team of your place of worship, etc. It won’t cost you anything and it can make a big difference when someone gets the power of the tool.

The Framework Worksheet is attached as a pdf file on this blog post. Just click here to download it onto your computer. It will open in a new window.

To access the accompanying video, simply go the web address on the Worksheet, or click HERE.

We’ve got a long ways to go to reach one million giveaways, so we’d appreciate your sending the PDF file or the link ( to at least TEN PEOPLE who could use it. Or you could duplicate and pass out the hardcopy Framework Worksheet. Whatever is easier for you.

We’re grateful for your help, and we’re excited to giveaway one of the most powerful leadership tools we know!

Here’s to making a difference in 2011,

Hi all,

We hope you are getting value from these videos on
Leading Change. It is such a critical factor in how we
will weather the storms of the economy as organizations
and invidividuals.

Video #3 discusses the three Primary Organizational
Systems. Any one or all three might be impacted by a
major change effort, yet it is unrealistic for us to address
the issues of all three, or even two, at the same time.

The video discusses the importance of determining the
system that it is the greatest constraint to successful
change – whether it be Strategy, Structure or Behavior.

Hi everyone,

Change, change and more change. Of course the real issue
is the psychological and emotional challenges that our people
go through during change.

This second video in our series starts to address this transition that people
(you, me, our employees, families, etc.) WILL go through.
