“You have to first be an excellent follower, before you'll ever be an excellent leader, and I'm really thinking that, that's more true every time I see it happen in front of my face.” - Dean Miles

Samuel Johnson once said, “People need to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed.” We KNOW how to be good business leaders, managers, spouses, parents, and followers of Christ, we just often don’t DO what we know.

Join us as we talk with Dean Miles, founder and president of Bridgepoint Coaching and Strategy Group. Dean’s past experience working with the Drug Enforcement Administration paired with his sales and business experience has helped him learn about body language, management, and how we react when faced with the truth. His goal is not to heap more instruction, but to remind people of what they already know to be true.

What you will learn

  • How to create a culture that attracts and retains younger people.
  • How to transfer leadership skills to the next generation.
  • How to maintain balance and juggle the different roles in your life.
  • The difference between leadership style and leadership principles.
  • Those that follow best become the best leaders.
  • How to have mutual purpose and mutual respect when working with a group of people.
  • How to take the negative connotations away from being a great follower.

There is a difference between leadership styles and leadership principles. Principles are timeless. Leadership styles, however, have an expiration date. - Dean Miles
