597. In Celebration, Father’s Day

Just a quick note to wish you a happy Father’s Day--and a special Father’s Day for all the fathers who make our lives so very special. 

While many countries of the world celebrate their own Father’s Day at different times throughout the year, there are some countries such as Denmark, Turkey, Chile, France, Cuba and the United Kingdom which also celebrate Father's Day on the third Sunday of June. 

On this special day…I hope you are with those you love---and with those who love you. 

In addition...I hope you enjoy the story of Father’s Day below~ 

Father's Day 

The idea for an official Father’s Day celebration came to a married daughter, seated in a church in Spokane, Washington, attentive to a Sunday sermon on Mother’s Day in 1910-two years after the first Mother’s Day observance in West Virginia. 

The daughter was Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd. During the sermon, which extolled maternal sacrifices made for children, Mrs. Dodd realized that in her own family it had been her father, William Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran, who had sacrificed-raising herself and five sons alone, following the early death of his wife in childbirth. For Mrs. Dodd, the hardships her father had endured on their eastern Washington farm called to mind the unsung feats of fathers everywhere. 

Her proposed local Father’s Day celebration received strong support from the town’s ministers and members of the Spokane YMCA. The date suggested for the festivities, June 5th, Mrs. Dodd’s father’s birthdays were three weeks away-had to be moved back to the nineteenth when ministers claimed they need extra time to prepare sermons on such a new subject as Father. 

Newspapers across the country, already endorsing the need for a national Mother’s Day, carried stories about the unique Spokane observance. Interest in Father’s Day increased. Among the first notables to support Mrs. Dodd’s idea nationally was the orator and political leader William Jennings Bryan, who also backed Mother’s Day. Believing that fathers must not be slighted, he wrote to Mrs. Dodd, "too much emphasis cannot be placed upon the relation between parent and child." 

Father’s Day, however, was not so quickly accepted as Mother’s Day. Members of the all-male Congress felt that a move to proclaim the day official might be interpreted as a self-congratulatory pat on the back. 

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson and his family personally observed the day. And in 1924, President Calvin Coolidge recommended that states, if they wished, should hold their own Father’s Day observances. He wrote to the nation’s governors that "the widespread observance of this occasion is calculated to establish more intimate relations between fathers and their children, and also to impress upon fathers the full measure of their obligations." 

Many people attempted to secure official recognition for Father’s Day. One of the most notable efforts was made in 1957, by Senator Margaret Chase Smith, who wrote forcefully to Congress that "Either we honor both our parents, mother and father, or let us desist from honoring either one. But to single out just one of our two parents and omit the other is the most grievous insult imaginable." 

Eventually, in 1972-sixty-two years after it was proposed-Father’s Day was permanently established by President Richard Nixon. Historians seeking an ancient precedent for an official Father’s Day observance have come up with only one: The Romans, every February, honored fathers-but only those deceased.

484. Happy 2014…Ready To Rock-And-Roll?

As we close 2013…I want to wish you a sterling 2014!

With the power and clout of our 95,000+ leaders who are part of our 19 LinkedIn groups and the 5000+ new leaders joining our LinkedIn groups every 30 days---our groups will always be about sharing knowledge and learning, with a focus on what’s working and what’s not in our industry---related to corporate housing emerging trends, products, services and industry suppliers/vendors.

And the more you give in your ideas, knowledge and smart-thinking…the more you will get/receive from other furnished/serviced apartment leaders in exchange.

As each of you wind down 2013 and as you are focusing on your 2014, here are some thoughts for the new year:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Myself and my PowerHour team have had the privilege of coaching some of the finest professionals in our industry since 1995---in 11 time zones around the world, who are at the top of our sector, leading and setting the pace. Each of them are unique in their styles, temperaments, goals and desires. And they all have some very similar and common denominators.

Here are the 13 common denominators of dynamic leaders and leadership – which I want to share with you.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

#1. They have a strong desire to excel.

#2. They embrace and focus on their strengths and are aware of their areas of growth and blind spots.

#3. They set S.M.A.R.T goals!

#4. They are aware of their Critical Success Factors…and their KPIs.

#5. They read. A lot. And are always focused on doing their best…and giving their best.

#6. They have a “growth” mindset as opposed to a “fixed” mindset. And they understand Root Cause.

#7. They consistently make time for themselves and reflect on their work, their level of service and impact they are having on others.

#8. They are service driven—bringing value to their clients and guests.

#9. They delegate effectively…leveraging the 4 Ds.

#10. They have established their personal ‘rhythm’ for their best day, week and month. And time with family---is always a priority.

#11. They bounce back faster than the rest! They are OK with both “successes” as well as “failures”…always learning from both.

#12. They are ongoing continuous learners.

#13. They live in gratitude!

From the list of 13 above…which ones are already on your list for 2014? Which ones do you plan to add?

++

May 2014 bring you joy, hope and peace!
Myself and our PowerHour team look forward to being part of your journey!

The Coach, ...and your LinkedIn group owner/moderator
