Leadership and Groups

February 1, 2021 by Edwin Gerace

Where is your tribe? Who is in your tribe?

A Group is a voluntary combination of two or more people. There are three distinct types of Groups that are relevant to the QSource: communities, organizations and teams.

F3 Q Source

We naturally want to be surrounded by people we like and trust. We gravitate to groups for security and confidence.

Community is one type that of group. Persons that live and socialize together can create communities.

Organizations is the other group. Persons that is tied to a purpose and identity and have a mutual identity.

Teams is the final group. Persons that have the benefit of a Community.

Leadership how it applies to all things

January 25, 2021 by Edwin Gerace

The Leadership journey is very similar to the marketing journey.

I was reading some of my F3 Q Source and came across this quote that has a lot of power.


The connection between movement and leadership is critical because it presupposes a need for action, a recognition by the leader himself that the status quo is something less advantageous than some other place, a location the leader visualizes and then articulates to his followers. Only then can the leader begin to persuade them to follow him to the new place. He must describe it to them first because people will only overcome their inertia and follow someone if they believe that he knows where he is going. They won’t leave the known for the unknown, no matter how charismatic the leader is.

This theory of movement and leadership applies to most anything you can imagine. Just like marketing you must visualize and understand the consumers journey before you can tell the story or provide a solution. Many people look for the solution but don’t take time to plan the journey to the solution. Like you parents said you must walk before you can run.

 

Like the agitator in a washing machine, leadership dislodges things long embedded in people’s emotional fabric, things that are impure and do not belong there but to which they had become accustomed–like a ketchup stain on their favorite shirt.

Being both Disruptive and agitating, leadership will naturally make people uncomfortable, at least until they begin to see for themselves that they are being led to a place of advantage.

We all as natural humans don’t like the uncomfortable or the uncertain. But what most detest the most is getting outside our comfort zone. So when someone you trust or someone in authority disrupt your norm. Many business persons have a lot of passion about their business and want to grow. When they enlist the help of a marketing professional, that can create some disruption. But they must understand the undertaking and can visualize the end result and be willing to take that journey as partners.

Rise and Shine it’s Morning

January 18, 2021 by Edwin Gerace

Ever wish you could become one of those rare morning people? The ones that wake with a start, feeling refreshed and energized. The ones that get in that morning workout or wrap up some work before many of us even hit the snooze button for the first time. Here are five tips to help you achieve that early bird status!

  1. Create a morning schedule. Physically write down the things you’d like to complete in the morning and set a time for each. Then stick with it. Once you force yourself out of bed early one or two weeks consistently, you’ll find it gets easier and easier to do.
  2. Let the light in. Whether natural or artificial, light tells your brain its time to get up and get going. If your room lacks large windows where you can open the blinds up, consider investing in a timed lamp or alarm clock with a light.
  3. Prep and eat breakfast. Although there are many of us who chose the skip breakfast, it is key to perking up your energy in the morning. Try prepping protein-focused meals the night before or grab a yogurt or fruit and try to consume it right after you wake.
  4. Get your body moving. Whether it’s a short walk around your neighborhood or a rigorous 5:30 am spin class, getting your blood pumping will help wake up your body and has a ton of other benefits, like stress and anxiety reduction.
  5. Feed your mind. Stimulate your brain and do something you enjoy first thing in the morning. Try reading a favorite book, catching up on the news, doing daily meditation, or setting intentions.
