Why Emotions Matter to Great Leaders

Great leaders see the good in everything, the see the future as becoming better, expanded and prosperous. Great leaders know that focusing on solutions and their emotional state makes a big difference in their lives and the lives of the people they work with.

Emotions Matter To Great Leaders 

Your calm, cool and joyful demeanor isn’t easy to maintain at times. However, it is the only way to stay centered, present and focused so you can be content and be the leader you know you are capable of being.

A family member leaves our world to join the dearly departed or there is a challenge with a loved one.

At the office, there may be lots of drama, politicking, and people strategizing. There may be people who go around, or over colleagues looking at their interests and not necessarily looking for the highest and best interest for all.

3 Ways Great Leaders Make Things Happen

Great leaders make things happen through their vision, energy, and vibration

Great leaders master the art of making things happen. Leaders know that results happen when they have:WHEN MEN DON’T LET YOU SPEAK

  1. A vision that you, the leader, want to experience
  2. The ability to create energy around that vision
  3. Exude the vibrations of success around the vision. They exude confidence, clarity, and calmness.


You make the vision of what you want to have happened through three activities

Leaders think.

You spend quiet time asking yourself in 5 years, 5 months or even 5 weeks what do you want to experience and feel. That is why we go after anything we want to feel a sweet sense of satisfaction.  In order to know that you have to think. Really think about what you want. You have to use your imagination, you have to see it. It begins with your thought.

Want to Engage Your People? Be a Community Organizer

Engage your people. It is critical in this day and age of high technology.

What started as a group of twenty people who I invited to my hotel room during a conference, has grown to 760+ members and active participants. They connect on our Facebook group, and at a boutique conference within our national conference. Two weeks ago we surveyed our group and found the ROI. WOW! 52% of participants stated that they stay with the organization because of the group, without the group they would have left.

Military Millennials Train to be Great Leaders

Military Millennials Are Different

Military Millennials Are Different — Those who have signed up to serve our country now and in the coming future are Millennials. People lump all Millennials into one bucket and make assumptions of who they are. There is a subset of Millennials that you, as leaders, have to be aware of. After their military service, they will see to work for your companies, organizations, and associations.   Know who you are dealing with. The moment you see military service or prior service, shift your perspective.

Remember we are an all volunteer military.  To join the military you have to be between the ages of 17 to 34, depending on the branch. I call them #MilitaryMillenials

Here are 6 falsehoods about Millenials who join the military and are prior service (veterans).

Seesaw of Shame, Failure, Success at Professional Conferences

What will you think of me? That thought crosses the minds of thousands of leaders going to professional conferences.

The Seesaw of Shame, Failure, Success at Professional Conferences


Pegine Leadership Business Motivational Speaker www.pegine.com 904.280.8806You are a few weeks out before your professional conference and I wanted to address an issue that I experience, have experienced and know others experience. The conflict within of shame, failure, and success. At your professional conference, the “How is everything?”Oh great… got this, got that, life is amazing‘ happens day in and day out.

Except in our head. The feelings of shame or failure can infect us. It is like a really huge magnifying glass focusing on what isn’t working, what hasn’t worked and the failings within.

If you go to professional conferences, no matter your leadership level, the see-saw is a natural occurrence. You see their outside presentation and compare what you see to your inside thoughts.

Leaders Be Memorable It Is Possible


Be a memorable character.


Someone I recently met at a conference emailed me and shared “Wow, You are a memorable character!

I shared the comment on a Facebook group that gives Women’s Leadership Advice. I received responses from women saying “Go Girl” “You Rock” and so on. I also received a response saying

“That is rude, why would someone write that?” I realized that many lurkers probably thought the same thing, Which leads me to write this post, “Are You Memorable?” and more importantly “Are You a Memorable Character?” It’s not rude to be called a memorable character, it’s awesome and powerful!

Some of the best leadership advice I ever received was from one of my sponsors and a CSMO (Chief Sales and Marketing Officer) named Al Roth. He said, “People remember you, promote you, sponsor you, hire you, buy from you and refer you because they remember you are a positive character.

In researching this post concept I came across the concepts of how writers create memorable characters. Those beloved characters in books we reach, movies we watch and stories we heard. How do writers see memorable characters?
