The Seven Epaulettes of Leadership

People will follow us, and so will their problems. If we as leaders are not adept at helping our people to overcome their problems, those same problems will eclipse the vision we have. 

See what so many people have learned and benefited from!


• How effectively are you leading your purpose and managing your principles?

• What are the signs of cross-coaching, and how to protect your team from it?

• Are people following you or just following your orders?

• Are we complaining or campaigning our way to success?

• How does Leadership differ from Applied Leadership?

• Are your relationships scalable?

• Can your relationships be described as situational or conditional?

• Workplace culture and time – are they your supportive companions or unforgiving adversaries?

• What’s your nomenclature?

• Continuity of Leadership Chain

The Book

Delivers Emotional Intelligence techniques in everyday relatable ways. What's the most important concerns to your team right now? Do you know how your team defines success? 

Ask your team members how they define leadership, if they struggle to do this, and you think you're a good/great leader, they may have some resentments towards you.  If they don't know leadership, how can they identify it. 

The Movement

Is apolitical. It is  far reaching and soul searching. Before you lead others you should lead yourself. Few people receive coaching, mentoring, and teaching leading up to a personal relationship, or out of a bad one. They have the hope that the next relationship will heal the last one. This doesn't work. It would be better to lead ourselves Getting into a relationships is not as hard as getting out of one, but maintaining a relationship is the most difficult thing to do. It's okay if we have shortcomings, so long as we are saleable in the ways that are advantageous for leadership and relationships. But we should not seek to join with others to create scalable relationships if we refuse to grow. 

The Scope

Utilize the six degrees of separation between us to connect us for the expressed purpose of raising well-adjusted leaders with the intestinal fortitude to  consistently and effectively exhibit The Seven Epaulettes of Leadership

Book Review


This is a must read for anyone new to a leadership position or those who aspire to achieve that responsibility. Experienced leaders/managers would do well by reading this book and doing a little self-evaluation. 

I have known Shawn for eight years and had the pleasure to directly observe his performance and leadership for two years. In this book Shawn does a great job of stressing the importance of relationships to leadership and his grasp of the difference between directions and motivation should resonate with anyone in a managerial position. 

I strongly recommend this book and look forward to Mr. Abrams second offering
