Outside the Box Leadership

Instructor: Jim Phillips (view profile)

Jim first introduced part of this topic back in February of this year.  This current presentation is from a live recording of a class he gave May 15th.

Jim says that everyone has been a leader, is currently filling some type of leadership role now, and will find themselves leading others in the future.  More likely than not, the demands of leadership are suddenly thrust upon us when we are not seeking it, and in the midst of a disaster there can be little margin for error.

It behooves each of us to take advantage of leadership roles that may present themselves during the good times, when mistakes and weaknesses can be beneficial learning experiences.  It’s also important to learn correct principles and habits now, rather than under fire when errors can be very costly.  

It’s vital to understand the difference between a commander and a leader, and exactly why this is so important — most people don’t even know there is a difference.  The best true leaders are also excellent followers.  

A critical part of developing the community resilience to make it through difficult times is the vital role of interdependent leadership at different levels within the community.  Now is the time to develop correct leadership skills based on principles.

Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years. For a number of years prior to this career, his hobby was teaching cold weather safety & survival.

Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliance living and family preparedness. He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question “What if?” and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work.

The answers he seeks (and then teaches) must be based on true principles derived from first hand experience. Above all else, he believes that attitude and practical knowledge is more critical to survival than having a bunch of “stuff.”
