We all have been influenced by people throughout our lives. But a few of those influencers took it to another level. Perhaps you can remember a coach or a teacher that made a deep, positive impact on your life. That impact was so great that you could say it was uncommon. This type of impact; which we call uncommon influence is rare but extremely powerful, so much so that it results in life-change. And isn’t life change what we are after?

This blog is a place that highlights uncommon influence and a place that encourages leaders to be this rare kind of influencer. We will post lessons, stories and learnings born from the trenches of leading others. It is our desire for this to be a regular resource for leaders who wish to keep their influence powerful.

It’s way too easy to be ordinary…be uncommon.
