"I truly enjoyed working with Tim Littell. He is what all managers should be; a leader who could guide others to excellence." (Bob Miner, Training Center Manager, Mitsubishi Motors)
"Tim is an intelligent, motivated, and caring individual. He is a great leader and led his training team at Mitsubishi to accomplish a bigger vision. His leadership was subtle, seamless, and natural." (Cindi Sinden, DENSO Sales of California)
"When he took over the leadership of the National Training Department, he instituted several innovations that really took our training program to the next level...We were finally working together as a finely oiled machine!" (Rick LaVarta, Training Center Manager, Mitsubishi Motors)
Tim approaches Leadership from an unapologetically Christian viewpoint, starting where all authority actually begins, with God, and his initial command to Adam: "Be fruitful and multiply". Using the analogy of a fruit tree, Tim takes you through the various stages of a leader's development, starting with the seed, sprouting into a sapling, growing into a mature plant, and finally becoming a fruit-bearing tree. Modes of Leadership include Farmer, Gardener, Caretaker, and Harvester, and a couple extra modes of leadership used for special circumstances, Firefighter and Chef.
Tim helps you think your way through several questions every leader has:
• How do you know if you are a leader?
• Is there a difference between a leader and a manager?
• What makes a leader different from those they lead?
• Is Leadership an innate ability or is it something that anyone can learn and develop?
• How do we reproduce ourselves as leaders?
• How does a leader actually get the authority to lead?
