C.E.O.

Community Development

What do you want your community to stand for? What will make your residents and stakeholders proud? When you say you are unique, what makes you so? Community development is more than planning, zoning, and building roads, centers, and parks. It’s also preparing your people to achieve with skills that make them successful, unshakable, and confident.

Economic Development

Economic development is a three-legged stool. It is for business attraction, retention, and expansion. Too often, community leaders become seduced by the glamor of attracting new businesses with incentives. A fraction of those resources directed to providing training and workshops for their small business people will keep their doors open and enable them to expand.

Organizational Development

At the core of a town hall is a culture that is driven by values. If the values are spotty and transient, the culture will be satisfied with people who do a job with lackluster performance. If the organization has thoughtfully adopted meaningful values that represent the community and the organization’s aspirations, then its culture will be one of excellence.

Three Thoughts

Being Well

How often do you feel good and function well?

When you feel well, you develop your potential, work productively and creatively, form positive relationships with others, and contribute to family, friends, and community.

And as a bonus, you get to be happy!

Setting & Achieving Goals

Are you willing to wake up five years from now and be in more or less the same spot as you are now, just with a different year on the calendar?

Set goals that make you a better person so you can live life to the limit and have what you want, not what you think you can have.

Resilience & Gratitude

Do you think today is just another day in your life? It’s not. It’s an extension of the gift.

The right response is gratefulness and resilience to make the best of it. If you respond as if it were the first day in your life and the very last day, you will have lived this day very well.
