Uber-consultant Alan Weiss, PhD, is running the Million Dollar Consulting® Conference in Atlanta in March. He already has 130 people signed up, but his “stretch goal” is 200. As a long-time member of Alan’s excellent communities I can attest to the incredible value of this opportunity. If you’re a solo consultant, coach or speaker, or if you run any kind of professional services business (e.g., accounting, legal, etc.), then this is the place you should be.

The site is below, with dates, presenters, and logistics. This is also one of the most inexpensive ways to be with Alan, as some registrants have pointed out, since he’ll be speaking and present throughout the three days. Please note that the special keynote speaker will be Dr. Martin Seligman, the founder of the entire field of positive psychology. Wow!

ISN Works introduces Richard Martin as one of its speakers.

I spoke last Tuesday to the Associates of the Asper School of Business in Winnipeg. As I was preparing for the speech I came up with a list of over 20 key lessons I learned about leadership, strategy, planning, and discipline during my military and consulting careers. Some of these lessons I had to learn at considerable cost to myself, so they’re “from the heart.”

I ended up speaking about other topics, but I think the list is still a good starting point for thinking and discussion. Here are the first 10 on my list, with more to follow next week.

  1. Leadership isn’t just about inspiration and charisma. You also need to be a good manager.
  2. The true secret of leadership is to be respected, not loved.
  3. Never plan for perfection, always assume that something will go wrong.
  4. Admit when you’re wrong or you’ve made a mistake.
  5. Trust the training and education you’ve received.
  6. Lead by example, especially in matters of ethics and integrity.
  7. Never burn your bridges. Always keep a way out of a situation, for yourself and others.
  8. First information is always wrong.
  9. Don’t overreact.
  10. Trust you’re intuition and gut, especially if it’s well educated and experienced.

Richard Martin is a consultant, speaker, and executive coach. He brings his military and business leadership and management experience to bear for executives and organizations seeking to exploit change, maximize opportunity, and minimize risk.
