Many of us know at least a small portion of the history of the founding of our great nation. We all know the stories of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. A few of us know the stories of John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and Richard Henry Lee, but what about the others? What fate, or destiny befell the men who put everything on the line to break free from the tyranny of the British Crowne? https://kevinmaevers.com/2018/07/04/the-fate-of-those-who-signed-the-declaration-of-independence/

Almost every week, I make the long, and very lonely drive from my home in La Quinta, to the City of El Centro so that I can teach adult students in Business, Marketing, and Leadership. Over the past few years, I have marveled at the beauty of the desert and of the Salton Sea. I have wondered if this was the type of landscape that awaited the ancient Hebrews in their exodus from Egypt. Is this a similar landscape to that which our Lord, Jesus Christ and the Apostles walked, during the first century A.D. Certainly, as the sun is setting, and you look out over the Salton Sea, you cannot help but be overwhelmed by the beauty and majesty of God’s creation.

As I get older, I am reminded that my “legacy” is that which I leave behind for others to share, to build upon, and to enjoy. For your heirs, the need to leave behind something goes far beyond a financial legacy. You want to leave the story, the roadmap of how you got here, what decisions you made, and most importantly, what worked, and what didn’t.

Excuse me for being a little late to the party, but this weekend’s events were so disturbing that I had to take a couple of days to consider the far-reaching consequences of everything that transpired. https://kevinmaevers.com/2018/06/25/democrat-leadership-calls-for-a-new-civil-war-in-america/

Whether we like it or not, whether the rumors are true or not, we are all judged by the company we keep. What do your associations say about you as a leader?

An acquaintance on another platform (Twitter) asked why I was always posting quotes from others, rather than posting some of the things that I teach in my own classroom. I honestly had to think about it for a few minutes. Then it dawned on me, I wasn’t using my own quotes, my own education, and my own experiences, because I didn’t want to appear arrogant. Yet, at the same time, I have studied and applied leadership theory for over 20 years in my personal life, and I have taught both undergraduate and graduate courses in leadership for the past decade. Certainly, I must have something to say on the subject? After some further thought, I realized, yes… the reason that I started studying leadership was because of my personal belief in a lack of real leadership in our nation, and in the past 20 years I have been able to apply what I have learned both in the classroom, and in the business world, to challenge old, tired ideas and to advance a vision of a better world for all of us.

Charles Krauthammer was arguably one of the greatest intellects in Washington, D.C. His columns and commentary were read and listened to by millions of people on a daily basis. His voice, always strong; his beliefs, always out front. He wrote columns and appeared on News shows beginning during the Reagan Administration and ending with the early Trump Administration. His praise was not limited to Republicans, nor was his scorn limited to Democrats. Charles’ opinion were his own and were always well thought out and found their basis in the facts of the day.

Krauthammer overcame many challenges in his life, including the swimming accident during his first year of Medical School which confined him to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Sadly, Charles could not overcome this final challenge with an aggressive form of cancer that took his life today, June 21, 2018.

The loss of Charles Krauthammer is not just a great blow to journalism and media, but also to all of us who value intellectual discourse, journalistic integrity, and the willingness to speak out, even when the subject is unpopular. He will be greatly missed.

Inspired by Valerie Berube, today I begin a new series on developing leaders.

The ability to develop long-term, beneficial relationships is key to any leader who hopes to achieve his/her vision. Good leaders understand that “1 is too small a number to achieve lasting success.” As leaders, we must surround ourselves with people of good quality. Then lean on those whose expertise exceeds our own. To be successful, you must develop a core team of trusted friends, with a shared vision, then execute that vision with the full support of your team.

Earlier today, I made a short post on Facebook about this issue. I feel that the issues of Fake News and Liberal Hypocrisy are important enough that these issues were worthy of additional thought. So I put out a complete article on my weblog.

Whether you are developing your personal brand, or your company brand, your Logo will send a strong message to both your clients and your competitors. For those of you that have studied persuasion, there are 3 types: Ethos, The Ethical Appeal; Pathos, The Emotional (think passionate) Appeal; and Logos, the Logical Appeal. Your logo should embrace one or more of these forms of persuasion. Additionally, most long-standing Logos are relatively simple. Think about Google, McDonald’s, Dell, Coca-Cola, Apple, Target, and dozens of others. All easily recognizable and identified with a specific brand. Our logo hearkens back to the 1984 presidential campaign of Ronald Reagan, “It’s Morning in America.” The golden sun, rising above the mountains signaling a start of a new day, and new opportunities.

Please let me know what you think. I appreciate all feedback.
