Wash, Rinse, Repeat

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Uncategorized

When we do a great job and give our best efforts to excel, our clients call us back for a repeat performance.

My latest example is the work that I recently completed for a national men’s conference in Florida over the Labor Day weekend. At this conference, I was entrusted to facilitate a 90-minute leadership development training workshop followed by executive coaching. Well to everyone’s surprise, we had a standing room only crowd at the workshop and a waiting list for 30-minute sessions for executive coaching. All reviews were favorable.

Black Enterprise called me on last week to begin discussions for the 2019 conference and how we can make it bigger and better. In 2018, I was not paid as this was our first time working together, however, in 2019, I will be compensated on my terms. All it took was to do great work and leave a lasting impression. Also, from that experience, I will potentially earn the business of a prominent group of leaders in North Carolina for a job well done.

So….as we prepare for your next assignment, remember to wash, rinse and repeat in order to sustain your presence in the marketplace. Leave a favorable impression and make a difference. It works!!

The Season – Wednesday Word

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christian Living , Christianity , Devotions , Interview , John Maxwell , Leadership , Podcasts , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

‘Tis the season to reflect and restore. We have all been moving at light speed with our business transactions, networking, engaging others and meeting various deadlines. To this end, we tend to be a bit fatigued as the end of the year approaches.

So…I encourage us all to take a step back, unwind and begin a period of relaxing and reflecting. It will recharge your batteries and set the tone for a successful 2019 and beyond. After all, your laser focus on what’s to come is the perfect set-up for great things that will happen.

Unity – Wednesday Word

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christian Living , Christianity , Devotions , Interview , John Maxwell , Leadership , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

Today, our nation pays respect and honor to our 41st President of these United States. President Bush’s life will be replayed as we come together, with his extended family, to honor his life, his work, and his dedication to our country in his varied positions of responsibility.

What’s ironic about death is that it brings people together, albeit for a brief moment in time, as a sign of unity, togetherness & oneness. There is power in unity!! We set our differences (perceived and real) to the side, shake hands, hug each other, say “I love you,” and even shed a tear together. Death commemorates a certain closure to an era and its significance is endearing and long lasting.

So today, as we watch our former President’s funeral procession, honor his legacy, remember his leadership and reflect upon his service – both military and as a government civil servant – I ask that you also take the time to put aside differences and come together with your fellow U.S. citizens, take time to reflect upon this great life that the Lord has granted to us and be thankful that the 41st President crossed our paths. Even if you disagree with some of his policies and his leadership, he is a child of God. His family extended their hand to the 45th President with an invitation despite the past unkind rhetoric that was directed toward the Bush family during the recent presidential campaign.

Use today to reflect, celebrate, honor and promote unity. In doing so, we will honor the Lord through our actions.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving Day with family and friends, I urge you to take time to be thankful for everything that you have – joy, happiness, material possessions, the ability to earn income, family, friends, a home and peace.

We live in a great country and we can freely express our faith in God. Be sure to remember these blessings

Vision – Wednesday Word

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christian Living , Christianity , Devotions , Interview , John Maxwell , Leadership , Podcasts , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

Vision is the ability to “see” far ahead of others through faith, drive, grit, tenacity and perseverance.

To this end, visionaries are ‘trend setters’ in that they can “see” an outcome to their goals, dreams and aspirations. Then, they act on what they can see. This is the difference between success (where opportunity meets preparation) and falling short (missing the mark).

I encourage you today to visualize the outcome of what you are aiming for. This is vision. Then, construct a solid plan of action in writing, that is measurable, and place it in your office to see each and every day. This is keep you motivated!

As you live your dreams, you realize your aspirations and exercise the steps toward your goals. I ma living mine….as CEO of The Johnson Leadership Group, in only 7 months, I have earned 5 subcontracts and 8 prime contracts to teach leadership training across the federal government, churches and corporations. This does not just “happen.” I have a plan and vision – and putting them to work!!

You can too!! Do it!

On today, I am very pleased to announce my new affiliation with the world’s most widely respected coaching membership organization – International Coach Federation (ICF). This connection brings credibility and professional status to my role as an executive coach as I seek multiple ways to train the next generation of leaders.

I embrace growth and change to position myself, and my company – The Johnson Leadership Group – to be ahead of the game and prepared to mentor those ho be declared as world changers through their leadership styles. In addition to the John Maxwell Team certification, I welcome ICF into my life to further position that work that I have to offer to the world.

New Adventure – Wednesday Word

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christian Living , Christianity , Devotions , Interview , John Maxwell , Leadership , Podcasts , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

My recent travels to Kenya AFRICA was uplifting, inspiring, educational and awesome, to say the least.

As I led the USA at this year’s annual National Men’s Ministry Conference in Busia County, I was able to learn a new and different culture, expand my network globally, heighten my awareness of other’s concerns and bring hope/inspiration to a people that do have access to resources as we do in America. The newly appointed Presiding Bishop and I discussed many things and is looking to me to bring some needed leadership training to their nation. Of course, I said yes!

I always look forward to new adventures. My wife and I are planning now for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo Japan where we lead a group of 20 other couples for 2 weeks of fun, sporting events, exploring restaurants and touring the host city. What a way to add excitement to your life – new adventures. Try it…you’ll be glad that you did!
