In this month's E-Learning Forum, Ford Taylor shares about Transformational Leadership and gives you the tools to have influence in every sphere of your life. There are so many good theories about Transformational Leadership (TL) and leadership in general. Many of them focus on “what” a good leader is and the “why” of leadership. TL focuses on that, and it goes many steps further. It goes beyond the what and why and moves into practical tools on the “how, who, when, what, where, and why.” Pretty much everyone in this world is smart, gifted, or talented in at least one area and many are gifted in multiple areas. The vast majority of people in the world have big hearts. They genuinely care about others. When those leaders are given practical and implementable tools and behaviors to walk out the “how” of leadership, their influence goes up and they become leaders far beyond what they have imagined in every sphere of influence in which they live, work, or play. Leadership is not about power or control. It is about influence. When people have the tools to influence in all three directions (down, across, and up), they have far more influence than they ever realized. Ford Taylor is the founder of FSH Strategy Consultants and Transformational Leadership. He is the author of Relational Leadership and directs a charitable international effort to provide Transformational Leadership to emerging countries worldwide. He is a leadership solutions trainer, strategist, and speaker. With a primary emphasis on the people that serve an organization while simultaneously maintaining a clear focus of the business or organization itself, Ford shares straight-forward practical solutions through authentic leadership training and individualized leadership consulting. With an empathetic intelligence derived from decades of experience with an array of people, personalities, and companies both large and small, Ford helps to both define and navigate leadership in the business culture of today.

Is your business currently growing? If so, at what rate? Are you satisfied with the current growth rate? How did you project your growth rate for next year? Growth is essential to building a sustainable business. If you are not growing, you are dying. Every entrepreneur desires to grow their business but not all are able to because of their inability to overcome the hindrances of growth. In this E-Learning Forum, Patrice Tsague shares the seven growth hindrances and how to overcome them. One of the growth hindrances is: the poverty mentality - a mindset that settles with the status quo due to a lack of awareness of God’s best or the courage to pursue it. Many entrepreneurs settle due to their past experiences - how they grew up, their circumstances, or their biblical worldview, and never realize God’s best for their business. To overcome this, you must understand the truth of God’s word as well as best business practices and have the courage to put it in action in your life and business. It is also important that you see yourself and business the way God sees you rather than through the eyes of culture and circumstances. What are the other six growth hindrances? Find out in this recording of the E-Learning Forum.

Do you know that your health and wellness has an impact on your personal and business productivity? Do you know you have an enemy who wants to steal, kill and destroy you through sickness and disease? According to the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease, 133 Million Americans—45% of the population—have at least one chronic disease. Chronic diseases are responsible for seven out of every 10 deaths in the U.S., killing more than 1.7 million Americans every year. U.S. employers and employees are paying the high costs of chronic disease through the increase in health costs and lower productivity. The truth is, one of the biggest enemy of our productivity as Biblical Entrepreneurs is sickness and disease. Whether it is affecting employee performance and productivity, increasing the cost of business or negatively impacting the entrepreneur’s drive and ability to focus, our ability to be healthy and to keep our employees healthy has a significant impact on our bottom line. The bible teaches us that the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. One of the areas he is after is our health. How do we defeat this enemy? How do we take control of our health? How do we tap into God’s original plan for us in the area of health and wellness? Dr. Gail Davis will take us back to the Garden where it all began and give us insight into what was lost due to sin. She will share her personal journey in going from losing the war on her health to defeating this enemy and living a healthier and more productive life.
