My name is Mike Goss, the founder of this emerging idea known as, “41 Cent Leadership.” And this is my wife, Ginger, the most articulate, beautiful, and amazing woman I have ever known. We both look forward to building relationship with you!
Here’s the background for “41 Cents Leadership.” Zig Ziglar once shared the idea of placing 5 coins in your pocket and each time you genuinely appreciate someone, transfer one coin to the other pocket. Make it your goal to transfer all 5 coins each day. Well, upon hearing that idea, I began carrying 5 quarters with me everyday to work. However, while leaving work one day, I spent those 5 quarters on a Coke Zero.
The next day, I went to the change drawer to reload my quarters – I was aghast! I had only one quarter in the change drawer (everyone’s got one). So, I did the next best thing … I took a quarter, dime, nickel, and penny with me. That’s where it all started as I began to consider the uniqueness of each coin individually and how they fit together as “41 Cents.”
I hope the ideas, strategies, and dialogue contained here create positive momentum in your life and leadership!
