And that’s a major problem. Yes, the issues with your family are big problems too. Your family problems need to be fixed as well. However, when you bring a lousy attitude to the office, you’re bringing major problems with you.
Your Attitude Matters
As a leader, your attitude matters to your team. How you feel and the energy you exude will set the tone for your team members.
They see you down in the dumps and cranky, there’s a good chance they’re going to be as well. Your team will follow your example. Read more...
Reel Leadership is taking you into a new universe today. We’re bringing you into the Spider-Verse. Yes, the Spider-Verse.
What is the Spider-Verse? The Spider-Verse was originally a 2014 Marvel comic book storyline exploring alternate versions of Spider-Man being attacked by the villain Morlun. This isn’t the Spider-Verse we’re going to explore.

Into The Spider-Verse introduces you to various versions of Spider-Man. You will meet: Read more...

There’s a phrase a lot of people like to toss around. I’ve even tossed around the phrase. That phrase is: Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. This phrase on luck is attributed to the Roman philosopher Seneca.

Sitting With My Childhood
I had the experience of my life in early November. My wife and I had chosen to invest in a local Comic Con, Grand Rapids Comic-Con. Because of the loan, we were given special access to the convention. We were also able to attend a VIP party.

On June 3rd, 2017, Alex Honnold did the impossible. Alex free-soloed the 3,000 foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Free-soloing is the climbing of a rock-face without the use of any safety equipment. Alex had no harness, no safety net, nothing to catch him if he were to fall.
