Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I am in the Coaching With Excellence program and have Dan's endorsement as a 48 Days Coach.

I hope to gain insights from those with more experience running a coaching and consulting business. I also hope I can share insights that will help others as well. A high tide raises all buoys!
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I officially started Anderson Leadership Solutions in September 2011. I left my 20 year Fortune 50 Sales Leadership job in December 2011. As of today I am President and CEO of a multi-dollar company...Stay tuned!
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to develop leaders of character as a consultant to organizations or a coach to individuals. The ability to impact the world through developing leaders of character as individuals or in organizations is what gets me up every morning.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to pursue my wife daily and prepare my kids for a life dedicated to impacting their world for Christ. I pray I will wait on God's best and not settle for my good enough.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I am passionate about seeing growth in individuals and organizations. If something or someone can be better, I feel a responsibility to make that happen. I am a clear communicator. If I am vague in my communications call me on it. I always try to speak with candor. When I get going on a topic that I am passionate about, there will be no doubt about it.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I create leadership development programs for organizations. I train sales teams. Finally, I coach high capability and high potential leaders and sales people.

My Un-Resume: Avoiding Reference Checks

Posted on June 29, 2012 at 8:50am 4 Comments

Brett was stealing from the company.  Primarily, he was stealing his salary because he rarely worked a full day.  However, I even found out after I fired him that he was also using his company credit card for personal household purchases!

In the interview Brett was great.  He had a great resume and was a former college athlete.  He was funny and people were drawn to him.  He had all the tools to be successful. But, the truth was I hired a dud, and it was my fault.  I didn't do…


Success Vs. Leadership: Hiring Front Line Leaders

Posted on June 27, 2012 at 11:44am 0 Comments

“There is a difference between success and leadership.” -Ross Strader, Senior Pastor

Recently, while spending time with my good friend Ross, he made that statement as we discussed leadership in our church.  His point was we often look for people who are successful in their jobs to find leaders for our churches, and we miss the mark.

Success does not always predict leadership.  Whether it be in churches or in business, success should be considered when…


Roar Early So You Can Roar Later

Posted on June 25, 2012 at 5:52am 0 Comments

When I relocated to Texas after 5 years managing in Buffalo, NY, I took over a team where one of the representatives had gone through initial training with me.  Lori and I had known each other for 10 years.

Two months into being her boss, Lori asked me point blank, “What is your problem? This is not the Dave Anderson I expected.”

My response was:  “Lori.  If I don’t roar now, I will never be able to roar later.”…


The Best Employee Retention Strategy

Posted on June 14, 2012 at 8:27am 0 Comments

People couldn’t believe he jumped to another company.  Tom was an all-star salesman who won multiple sales awards over the last 5 years.  He earned sizable raises year after year and large bonuses.  It didn’t make sense to some.

Tom called me multiple times during his final 6 months with the company.  He did not call to discuss his salary, bonus, or benefits.  His frustration was with his boss.…

Hi Dave,

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

One thing I noticed on your profile is you have many great competencies. Knowing these is great and key to having a successful life.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
