Welcome to mr alex online
The Business Mentor
The Covid-19 virus has caused devastation throughout the world. Factories emptied, offices abandoned, shops without shoppers, and our economies are in tatters. For the world to recover from this nightmare, we need Leaders that can guide us through to safer, healthier and financially better times.
This online space is dedicated to Leadership and committed to helping and developing those who already have the necessary skills and business management knowledge. No matter how good and successful a manager you are, Leadership is different.
You can be appointed a Manager,
but only followers can appoint their Leader.
The Art of Leadership comes through learning and doing. The best way to become a
Business Leader is to first gain experience through managing parts, or all of your business. Management experience is important in the path to Leadership. Once you have gained experience in management (counted in years), some managers go on to be a boss, which is a natural extension of managing. For others, they want to be more than just a boss. Whilst a boss is undoubtedly in charge, they are not Leaders. A boss will be focused on profit, whilst a Leader knows that profit comes through people, Bosses drive standards upwards, whilst Leaders instil values that last. Bosses spend a lot of time finding out who caused the problem, on the other hand, Leaders are more concerned about what happened and fixing it.
To become a Leader, take a look at those who already are Leaders. Reading about Leadership is helpful, but there is no substitute for working for or with a Leader. If that's too difficult, then maybe you should try being something else. Go get a job that provides you with direct access to a Leader, so you can observe their habits, and understand the sacrifice they are prepared to pay for being a Leader.

Part of being a Leader is finding someone to share and confide in. Someone experienced in Leadership, whom they can trust. A Mentor will bring focus and purpose, they know what it is like being a Leader and will openly share their wisdom, give advice and act as a Devil's Advocate when needed. The Mentor's track record should speak for itself. Mentoring is time-consuming and the benefits flow only once the Mentee and Mentor are on the same page and focus on the same outcome. It is important that Mentees and Mentors select each other. Talk with Leaders, they will openly tell you who their Mentors are, and how valuable they are within the Art of Leadership.

Once a Leader - Always a Leader
Still want to become a Leader?
Leaders are required to overcome whatever challenges are before them. Leadership brings hope that we find solutions, and the opportunity that we can be even better than we are today. Leaders often get there by taking the road less travelled. They are unafraid to take intelligent, thought through risks, that is what leaders do.
There are billions of people in the world, but there will only ever be thousands of leaders. Although leadership can be learnt, the process of becoming a Leader is not easy! It takes hard work, flexibility, a strong work ethic, integrity, commitment and excellence. Above all, it has to earned - Leadership is not free - it requires courage to do what needs to be done, commitment to do whatever it takes, determination when others are less so, and the ability to listen before you act.

Learn the Art of Leadership
"Alex tutored, managed and preached, insisting on a strong work ethic and unparalleled business practice values. He reeked professionalism and integrity, and his commitment to excellence was above reproach. As I now reflect on our time together, I realise what fun we had and the great respect I have for him, and I miss the challenges we had when we worked near each other."
