Principles for Success

Principles for Success is derived from Lodestar Guidance: Principles to Live and Lead, a program developed by our very own President and CEO Paul Weaver. Paul is committed to the value of leadership and the importance of developing tomorrow’s leaders.

We are excited to bring this program to you as we introduce new character traits throughout the year. Sit back, relax, read, watch, learn and share your own personal stories by hashtagging the trait and using #morethanthebanner. We like to call it a win-win-win…you learn about leadership, we learn about your experiences, and showmen everywhere can learn from each other! Click through to learn about the character traits below then stay tuned as we add more! See the winners.

  • Determination

    Determination is working intently to accomplish your goals regardless of opposition.

  • Patience

    In short, having patience means waiting without complaint. People often want results NOW, but it’s easy to lose sight of the big picture and the opportunity to achieve even larger goals.

  • Diligence

    Diligence means always giving your best effort to complete a task. When you practice diligence, you spend your time and effort in a willing, consistent manner to successfully set and accomplish your goals.

  • Influence

    Influence is the power to affect, guide and shape the opinions and actions of others without making them feel pressured. It is a way to motivate your fellow showmen toward common goals.

  • Attitude

    Attitude is the power to stay positive despite the circumstances. When you have a positive attitude, it can be contagious to those around you, even your fellow showmen.

  • Motivation

    Motivation is an inner power, pushing you toward taking action. It is driven by desire, passion and ambition.
