Three Types Of Leaders That Impress Me These Days - What About You?



There are three types of leaders that really impress me these days:


1. The ones who keep jobs (theirs and ours)

2. The ones who create jobs

3. The ones helping people find/create jobs


Are you one of them? Do you at least keep thinking what you can do, how you can help, even if you (still) have a job?


Job growth is called ''scary'', while ''Shockingly weak job growth in May'', article states that level of job growth is the weakest since September. (According to ADP, the private sector had added 100,000 jobs in each of the prior six months leading to May. The ADP employment report showed private sector employers added only 38,000 workers in May, far lower than the revised 177,000 jobs added in April and much weaker than economists had expected. Plus, half of the private sector jobs came from McDonald.)


With nearly 14 million people currently looking for work and job openings still relatively scarce, it may be no surprise American workers seek jobs in Asia (video). They are corporate employees, but also entrepreneurs. Recruitment agencies see dramatic increase in recruitment in Asia.

I am not writing this to scare you, and you have probably seen or heard these news in one form, or another.

It makes me think, ''What can I do? How can I help?''

This list may be useful to you or someone you know. That is why I decide to post it. We can start small, but thinking about it and doing something, anything in our power really.

Do you know anyone you can help find, or keep job? What can you do at your job to make it bring more business? Do you have an idea how to start, or grow business? Can you help someone start or grow business?

There are many other questions we should think about on a daily basis. And do something about it every time, even by offering and information that might be useful to someone else.
