|Once the actual work began, we were most impressed with your ability to quickly locate the problem area and
implement a solution. Your careful analysis of the impact of any change was well appreciated. In the end, it feels like you
care as much about our success as we do, and that simply can't be quantified in a letter.|
—John Ferber, Vice Chairman Board of Directors and Chief Product Officer, Advertising.com
We've all heard people say, "leaders are born and not made".
If it's really true that leadership skills can never be learned then you can't become a better leader than you are right now.
Don't history and commonsense both tell us that this is simply not the case. Ronald Reagan became President when he was 70. If he was a born leader, wouldn't this have happened much sooner?
We've all missed out on great opportunities, because sometimes we forget that one simple question can change everything. But many of us still don't know how to ask the right questions to facilitate change and stimulate growth. People often tell Frank that he asks hard questions.
But isn't a "hard" question really just a question we either want to avoid or don't know how to answer. So we say, "that's a really difficult question", when isn't this precisely the reason we need to answer it?
|Frank's skill in asking the right questions is un-mistakable, and is at the core of his leadership philosophy.
The power of these questions cannot be underestimated, especially if you want to lead and not manage.|
—John Cave, Westhaven Worldwide Logistics
Are you managing or leading? If you don't know—you're almost certainly managing.
Management is the process of getting things done. Leadership is having the inspiration to know what things need to be done.
In today's hyper fast world, managers need to stay ahead of the game. If they want to remain an asset to the company—they need to become leaders.
Leaders build up employees and help them grow, giving them real opportunities to one day become leaders themselves. Leaders have confidence that those working with them are not after their job.
And by continual learning and improvement, leaders make everyone around them better.
|Frank, as you can imagine we all have been at a lot of trainings—either in-house or at some other location. Your
ability to almost instantly apply your teachings to our specific situation made your workshop so special. Sadly enough, that was a
rare exception and speaks the more for you.|
Your knowledge and your teaching style are second to none. The whole team agrees that we never learned that much before and we look forward to have you again.
—J.L, VP, Fairfax, VA
