The following are a list of the movies I have found to be powerful in team development. You may some of your own and by all means feel free to share with us your thoughts and how you used the movie. Many can be used for Leadership Development as well. This list is in no particular order.

Second, you must acknowledge the importance of trust. Without trust, everything takes much longer to do and to communicate and the results will always be less than satisfactory. When it comes to trust, the secret to earning people's trust is by trusting them. People follow the behaviors of others more than their words and so if you trust other people you are giving them the perfect example and incentive to trust you in return.

Go to Barnes & Noble (either in person or virtually) and scan what books are showing up in the Training / Instructional Design field. It is always good to know about the references, especially if you are called to do a project and you can locate some good resources for current projects.

Franchising is not a business in itself. It is a business strategy. It's a business system. That's a significant distinction that isn't always clear. McDonalds is in the fast food business - although many people feel they are really in the real estate business, while others think they're in the entertainment business. Regardless of that discussion, they are not in the business of Franchising. Schooley Mitchell Telecom Corporate Training Consultants is in the business of telecom consulting. Ramada is in the business of operating properties. Snap-On Tools is in the business of selling tools.

Write an article for publication in a local paper, professional journal or organizational newsletter. Do not discount that you are NOT knowledgeable or no one else would be interested in what you do for a living.

We will never know how much it cost our business growth because we missed the seminars. However, if I had it to do over again, I still would have missed all the seminars to be able to watch my son play college football. They grow up so fast. At least I have those memories.

How, then, do managers transcend from a traditional, transactional approach to leadership, in which the manager negotiates with the subordinate: "Do this, and this is what I'll give you." Often, these are not explicit conversations, but rather implicit understandings. The employee knows that if he does 'this and this,' and not 'that and that,' he'll receive something in return. Does this method of 'leadership' build commitment from staff? Does it enroll the individual in a common mission and vision? Or is it oriented more towards compliance and implicit consent of not rocking the boat?

Great importance is given to Leadership Development. Leaders liberally practice trust and delegation. They choose the right persons forvarious tasks. In war they observe fairness. Fighting is suspended during night. Generals and soldiers fight against equals only.

Envision your bold enterprise. Visualize your venture and answer the question, "What will this do for me?" Write down in detail the payoff you desire - more money, more free time, more happiness or all three. Embellish your vision with sensory detail. See, hear, taste and feel it. The more real it is to you, the more you'll believe in your ability to make it happen.

A wise man once said. "Investors don't like you, or your company. They don't care about your products. They just need to know how they are going to make money-or they'll get fired if they don't." And that wise man is Jimmy Treybig, partner at a venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates.

The people that change things and make things happen, or that inspire others to move forward rarely do so because they mandate that their ideas or status to the people they connect with. They inspire and spark transformation through their passion for their company, idea, product, project, etc...That's because passion is contagious. Having a well positioned brand opens the door to a place of influence and impact. If you can't get genuinely excited about what you are doing, how do can you expect to have lasting impact and meaningful influence with people and in situations.
