Small-Business Executives Learn Leadership Under Fire from Navy SEALs

This is an older article, but the message is never out of date. Corporate executives developing their skills so they can survive in an ever changing business climate. More and more should consider this type of training so their team can be prepared for the turmoil that businesses are facing today. Being prepared, focused, and ready for change, this will only help the leaders perform to the best of their ability.

Great job!

“They emphasized leadership principles we could use,” he says about the dozen or so Navy SEALs who put them under stressful conditions. “They thrive on chaos. When everybody’s confused, they know what to do. They plan for it. They prepare for it.”

From the brief training, Mr. Wrocherinsky says he learned to use intelligence about his clients to develop plans to adapt to rapid changes in the business market. That’s why afterward, he put the lessons he learned to good use by meeting with his employees and customers to tell them that even with the economic downturn, the company is in a growth spurt, having seen a 15% to 20% jump in revenue to $18.5 million. Being proactive, he also says that his company will be holding a seminar series that would help his clients – other small-business owners – share information about business practices that have helped them weather difficult business conditions right now.

“One of my philosophies is to learn and grow as a person, and to learn as a leader,” says Mr. Wrocherinsky, who was honored this year as the Small Business Person of the Year in New York City and the state by the Small Business Administration.

If you haven't visited the National Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, FL, you really should. It depicts the men of UDT and their evolution to present day SEALs. A great lesson in American history.

They’ll be on display until the museum’s board of directors picks one of the artists to create the final version, probably sometime before June

Obama To Announce Iraq Withdrawl

An anonymous source said that President Obama is a day away from making a final decision on Iraq withdrawals. Taking the troop count down to 30-50K in 19 months. We will have to wait on an official announcement to see if this rings true.

The source did not say how many troops would be injected to Afghanistan.

Gitmo, Should It Stay or Should It Go?

President Obama signed an executive order yesterday closing Guantánamo Bay in one year. So, what are they going to do with the detainees that remain? That has not been determined. An article written in the The New York Times yesterday explains the real danger that comes with releasing prisoners back to their homeland. A former Gitmo detainee, Said Ali al-Shihri, is now the deputy leader of Al Qaeda’s Yemeni branch.

NY Times stated:
However, under a heading describing reasons for Mr. Shihri’s possible release from Guantánamo, the documents say he claimed that he traveled to Iran “to purchase carpets for his store” in Saudi Arabia. They also say that he denied knowledge of any terrorists or terrorist activities, and that he “related that if released, he would like to return to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, wherein he would reunite with his family.”

“The detainee stated he would attempt to work at his family’s furniture store if it is still in business,” the documents say.

Shocker! Even after attending the rehabilitation program for former jihadists, They Still Lie!

20 Worst Supermarket Foods

Making simple, educated choices at the store can really make a difference. This is a great article on what to choose and what to pass...

Eat at your own riskBy: Matt Goulding, Men's Health

Sure, a turkey burger sounds healthy. But is it, really? Not if
you order the Bella from Ruby Tuesday, which packs a whopping 1,145 calories.
(And yes, that's before a side of fries.)
To further enlighten you on the
prevalence of preposterous portions, we spent months analyzing menus, nutrition
labels, and ingredient lists to identify the food industry's worst offenders.
Our primary criterion? Sheer caloric impact. After all, it's the top cause of
weight gain and the health problems that accompany it. (As you read, keep in
mind that 2,500 calories a day is a reasonable intake for the average guy.) We
also factored in other key nutritional data, such as excessive carbohydrates and
fat, added sugars, trans fats, and sodium. The result is our first annual list
of the worst foods in America.
Eat at your own risk.
