  5. 5. Survey of Strengths – Dr. Steve McSwain   Here are my scores on the VIA Survey of Character Strengths. For how to interpret and use these scores, see the book Authentic Happiness. The ranking of the strengths reflects my overall ratings of myself on the 24 strengths in the survey and how much of each of the strengths I possess. My top five are the ones I pay attention to and find ways to use more often. •  MY Top # 1 Strength - Humor and playfulness - I like to laugh and tease. Bringing smiles to other people is important to me. I try to see the light side of all situations. Which is why I’m a humorist. •  My 2nd Strength - Hope, optimism, and future-mindedness - I expect the best in the future, and I work to achieve it. I believe that the future is something that I can control. I really can’t but believing I can works well for me. •  Strength #3 - Curiosity and interest in the world - I am curious about everything. I am always asking questions, and I find all subjects and topics fascinating. I like exploration and discovery. •  Strength #4 - Fairness, equity, and justice - Treating all people fairly is one of my abiding principles. I do not let my personal feelings bias my decisions about other people. I give everyone a chance. •  Strength #5 - Appreciation of beauty and excellence - I notice and appreciate beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performance in all domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to everyday experience. This also explains why I married so beyond my deserving. HA HA

  7. 7. 3.    Leadership  is  never  determined  by  TITLES,                      POSITIONS  or  PROMOTIONS,    but  by                              followers.  (John  Maxwell)  
  8. 8. “People  BUY  INTO  THE  LEADER  before  they  BELIEVE  in  his/her  vision.”                –  John  Maxwell   3.    When  people  like  neither  the  vision  nor  the  leader,  they  get  rid  of  both.   2.      When  people  like  the  vision  but  not  the  leader,  they  get  rid  of  the  leader.   1.      When  people  like  the  leader  but  not  the  vision,  they  seek  another  vision.   4.    When  people  like  both  the  leader  and  the  vision,  they  will  follow  anywhere.   John  Maxwell’s  LAW  OF  THE  “BUY  IN”  
  9. 9. 4.    Insecure  leaders  may  DOMINATE                      but  secure  leaders  DELEGATE.   “Great  things  will  happen,  but  only  if  you  do   not  care  who  gets  the  credit.”                                                                                      -­‐-­‐  Mark  Twain

  12. 12. 6.  Leaders  SHAKE  MANY  HANDS   and  MOVE  MANY  HEARTS.  So  said  J.  Maxwell   Three  QuesPons…     1.  Do  you  care  about  me?     2.  Can  I  trust  you?   3.  Can  you  help  me  fulfill  my  hopes   and  dreams?  
  13. 13. 6.  FOCUSED…VISIONARY   Leaders  realize  knowing    WHAT  NOT  TO  DO    is  as   Important  as  knowing  WHAT   TO  DO.     “Anyone  can  STEER  A  SHIP;   it  takes  a  leader,  however,   to  CHART  A  COURSE”   -­‐-­‐  John  Maxwell   NEED  PROOF?    Then,  read  Isaac  Jacobson’s  NY  Times  Bestselling   Biography  of  STEVE  JOBS  –  Talk  about  FOCUS!!  
  14. 14. 8. Leaders  Know  GROUCHY  CUSTOMERS   make  GREAT  COACHES.   That’s  my  take  on  Bill  Gates  comment…   “Your  most  unhappy  customers  are  your  greatest  source  of  learning.”     So,  what  has  your  last  grouch  taught  you?  
  15. 15. 9.       “I’ve  learned  that   people  will  forget   what  you  said,   people  will  forget   what  you  did,  but   people  will  never   forget  how  you   made  them  feel.”   Maya  Angelou   (1928  –  2014)  LEADERS  make  the  team  feel   Wanted,  Needed,  Appreciated,  and  Valued     And  more  frequently  than  just  the  Holiday  Party
