This program is teaching life skills to youth in learning how to sew and make leather goods. From the pictures and videos that I’ve seen, the investment Mrs. Simon, the owner of The Gaspy Group is making is monumental. These life skills can’t ever be taken away. Having the opportunity to speak to the youth and their families is an honor that I never take litely.

I have the fortunate opportunity to speak into the lives of Northside High School’s amazing teachers. I’ll be speaking on the power of their “Why.” When a teacher understands the importance of their “why” and it’s importance in impacting the lives of the youth, great things are accomplished. I’m super excited as teachers hold such an integral role in shaping thier future.

Northside High School - Motivate The Teachers
The Nail, The Hammer & The Mallet
I have the fortunate opportunity to speak at Northside High School to all the teachers before school starts on the power of their “Why.” To drive home the point I’ll be touching on the “Nail, The Hammer and The Mallet.” When a teacher understands what’s in their toolbelt to help build and construct the minds of their students, it changes their perspective on just how important their role is. This talk is meant to provide motivation for the upcoming school year and beyond.

“Every year millions of people get married and millions get divorced. Every year BILLIONS of dollars and countless hours are spent on wedding plans and ceremonies. Sadly, only a fraction of the time and money is spent on premarital preparation. As a result, couples suffer from being unprepared for the marathon of marriage. The Wife Ready Boot Camp will focus on preparing women far beyond the wedding day.” – Kim McQuitty
One of the greatest role models I’ve been blessed to have is my Father, Leroy M. Holmes. He is not a man of many words and he was never one to sit down and have long drawn out talks with me about life; However, one of his greatest gifts to me was in his level […]
My son a few months ago showed me that in teaching and leading, recognition is NOT as important as bringing value to the individual or teammate. Here is the setting: Several months ago me and my wife are in a race to the finish line in getting this young guy potty trained. He’s winning the battle […]
The picture above denotes some of the greatest leaders in the world at 2013 Leadercast! I despise Duke (I’ve always been a North Carolina Tar Heel fan), but there is no denying that Coach Mike Krzyzewski is one of the greatest coaches and leaders of our time.
In part 2 of this blog on Putting Your Dream To The Test, I want to parallel Steps 6-10 in relation to the birth of our second child, Major Alexander, which was a dream come true for me and my wife. Major took just under 10-years to become a reality and it wasn’t without […]
In this particular post I speak on Putting Your Dream to The Test. Being 3 months into the New Year, I think it’s a good time for a gut check to see if we are on track in turning that resolution, that dream, into reality. In being part of the John Maxwell team, this is […]
An equation of leadership. One of the most important lessons I learned is that life is a series of choices. Where we as people miss the mark sometimes, is thinking we have to make choices independent of intelligent council. I’m not speaking of choices on whether to eat red or green Skittles but those choices […]
