His lifelong commitment to education has led him to teach everyone from world leaders to small business owners how to develop personal identity – and why it is so important in business today. He joins me today to talk about success – and can everyone attain it? Please welcome Stedman Graham.
Stedman’s leadership is based on the approach that you can’t lead anyone else until you can lead yourself
You’ve got to have a skill set and a support system to emphasize who you are
Develop a self-directed learning process
Freedom doesn’t come from an external source but from within
Success is based upon your commitment to discovery
Your transformation is based on going from a follower to a leader which hinges on your attitude
If you want a change you’re going to have to do something that’s gonna free you from the average world
