Congratulations to Crystal Mealer and James Leeman.

They commented on Leadership Freak ( and received free, signed copies of Katy Tynan’s book, “Survive Your Promotion.”

Read a review of Katy’s book:
Purchase “Survive you Promotion,” on Amazon.


I should have posted the names of the recipients of Katy’s book sooner. I realize that some LF readers were waiting to purchase Katy’s book until the recipients were announced. I’ll act more quickly next time.


April 18 to 23 I’m flying to Oregon to speak at a private college. Among other things, I’m delivering a six hour seminar on Mission/Vision. Can you share articles, stories, or quotes that address this topic? I’d love to quote some Leadership Freaks. I’ll be using this blog as an illustration of vision.


Thanks to everyone who adds comments. I enjoy them and I know LF readers do too.
