Defining Leadership and Creating Smart & Efficient Leaders at the Hubbard College

Jerome Garot, future leader of Earth.

Leadership is often confused to be some amazing natural trait someone is born with, this is not true however. All leadership consists of is the ability to give and enforce orders that work towards visible and positive accomplishment.

Everyone is a leader in its basic form. When you decide you want to get some food, you give your body an order to go and get some, and you keep persisting on it until you get that delicious food!

When you look at a broader picture, you decide you want to sell 20 books today and you know out of experience you can sell 9 books a day. This leaves you 11 books unsold! You then order 2 of your sales employees to sell 6 each today. Problem solved.

Now we look at a BIG picture. You are the CEO of a company and people look to you for answers to all their problems, you are a leader in the sense that you can influence them. But are you truly showing leadership?

– Leadership is not cleaning up people’s mess. It’s giving them the right orders to do it themselves.

I can guarantee you if you’re running a business, you have done this – or are still doing it today.

I realized I’ve done this numerous times, and when I finished my Effective Leadership course (included standard in the Associate degree) I completely found new ways to be a leader and an executive.

I had an even better realization after I finished the Policy course and learned about policies. This makes you able to stop problems from recurring, it’s like writing a manual that people can go to each time they have a question.

I loved it, and still do.

Turning Luck and Uncertainty into Continuous Expansion and a Steady Income

If you have been interested in business at all, even if only a little, you’ve probably heard lots of statistics where half of new businesses don’t survive the first years of establishment, or something of the sort.

Now why is that? I’ve heard many excuses, and they never seem very convincing.

Jerome Garot reading the latest news.

“The economy is bad” being the leader in excuses. People read the news and get bombed with it; this is then their excuse for everything that’s going bad. The (un)funny thing is, half those people don’t even know what “economy” means.

Here’s a definition.

“The management of the use of the income, products and resources of a country, state, group etc.” – Modern Management Technology Defined

You see here then, I emphasized the word management. If people truly knew this definition, they would realize that their own “economy” was bad. Their own management and control of their business is off.

They think their problem lies with the country or the world (which is not a wrong assumption because in some way it does), whereas actually their problem lies within their knowledge of business administration and the application of it thereof.

Just because the government is fiddling with the country’s economy, doesn’t mean you can’t do something about yours.

Here at the Hubbard College, some of the other students have been to other California colleges studying for college degrees in business administration.

–    All say that they had a feeling that the other colleges just didn’t give them anything they could truly work with.

I want to be an entrepreneur, and I want to be successful. With the education I get in my Associate degree I have learned how to handle and control any organizational situation that has to be handled in a company.

One of the most important things I have learned is not to cut back on spending, it’s rearranging it to things that will get you MORE money. It’s a simple realization, but if you want to know WHERE to rearrange it, drop me a line to see how I can help you get vital data for your life and your company.

The Difference Between “Business in Books”, and Business in the Real World

When looking at the current state of affairs in the business world, one can’t help but wonder where it all went wrong. For many politicians, pointing their finger and blaming innocent organizations seems to be their solution. This all makes it pretty obvious that they’re just trying to ignore their responsibility for ruining the economy and the lives of people who are part of it.

Jerome Garot is not to blame!

Right now, being able to DO things goes a lot further than being able to just KNOW things. This is what students and entrepreneurs must be focusing on in choosing a career to pursue.

I’ve been interested in business administration for several years and had some college experience back in The Netherlands, where I’m originally from, and I couldn’t find myself being able to actually apply what I had learned and had been taught (but apparently did get a good grade on).

• Many of my friends just want to get their business administration degree and then start making some money. This traps them in the “9 to 5 drag”.

• Their education gives them nothing that they can think with for themselves and then need to be worked in for 2 years at a company from which they never seem to be able to leave from.

• They didn’t learn the fundamentals of expansion in life nor in business.

• They can’t confront expansion, because they never really learned HOW to do it, and what it actually consists of.

I left after my first year at The Hague College and moved to Los Angeles by myself to start a program at a school that really caught my attention. This was the Hubbard College of Administration (HCA). After my initial orientation at the college, I just knew this was different than anything I had ever encountered before.

I started immediately when I received my student VISA and after one year I have been sent out to numerous businesses to apply each theory course in the real business world.

Thanks to this different way of educating, I actually have the confidence that I will be able to use everything I have learned.

I am currently finishing my Associate Degree and am going to pursue Consultant Programs right here at HCA.
