I run a military leadership school, and often times I hear young leaders complain that their ideas aren’t being considered, or valued. Sometimes it makes them feel like their boss doesn’t listen to them, or it goes in one ear and out the other, so they feel defeated.

I understand some leaders just don’t listen, or they don’t accept change; but before I jump to that conclusion, I prefer to examine the strategy used in their presentation just to make sure that’s not the potential problem because if so…this is definitely fixable.

In my experience with leading people, I can tell you that it’s nice to have a well thought-out plan presented to you versus a complaint. In this video I will talk a little about how this plan should be put together the next time you propose an idea to the leaders in your organization.

I'm a married man of 18 years. We have three kids, 2 girls and a boy, and I'm a 17-year active duty military service member. I've always been a critical thinker and a close listener to what people are saying. I love to read and watch videos for personal and professional development. There's a ton of information out there and it doesn't always synchronize, so I enjoy the conversations that can develop from it. This is why I decided to share my thoughts and open the conversations to the world online. We can all become better through these discussions because there's always a different perspective.
