Releasing my book “Made to Lead Millions” helped me overcome my fears of inadequacies about leadership and millions. I had been under-estimated, under-compensated, overworked, and under-valued. I became an Amazon Best Selling author in the area of Church Leadership, where I received much resistance throughout my adult life. This captivating self-help book reveals raw and authentic thought-provoking leadership experiences and expertise to bring you healing, freedom, encouragement and success in practical ways! Please enjoy an excerpt from the book below.
“I have worked in corporate America for years. There was one time that I was working late. The way my cube was designed I was facing inward towards my computer and my back was facing the aisle. After completing my assigned reconciliations, I was directed to place my folders on the desk of my controller for review. I had my earphones on listening to gospel music. Suddenly, a report came flying over my right shoulder and landed on my desk. I jumped from the horrific boom that hit my desk. I thought to myself, I know nobody threw this ten-pound report at me!!! I looked over my shoulder and no one was there. I rolled my chair back into the aisle and looked to the left. No one was there. I looked to the right and my controller was just about to enter his office. I looked at the report and I knew it was one that I had completed earlier. I scanned the report for some error or reason as to why this was thrown at me.”
“I cannot clearly describe the anger that welled up in me. Then tears began to form in my eyes. My fists were clenched. I got up from my chair and grabbed my phone and ran to the stairwell exit. I began to walk down all seventeen flights of stairs. I called my mom, no answer. I called my husband, no answer. I called Sister Gertrude and she answered. I could not even speak. She heard me breathing hard. Then she heard me crying. She knew what to do. She started praying. When I could talk, I said, keep praying until I can tell you what happened.”
“I saw myself pushing this man out the seventeenth story of the building. I saw myself reverting to my old self and cussing him out. I saw myself throwing the ten-pound report at him too! God intervened and calmed my anger. I told Sister Gertrude what transpired and returned to my desk as if nothing had happened. I had bills to pay, a child to feed, and a church to be an example for. I could not go to jail because of the test presented to me.”
“A good leader would not throw things at their employees. An excellent leader would give a verbal or written explanation. A leader who builds other leaders would give an explanation and training to reduce errors or issues. Clarity and communication create positive environments for growth of all. Throwing things creates a volatile and hostile environment.”
