Welcome to Excellent Life Leadership

Your home for Leadership Development & Communication Training.

Leaders and communicators must start with a clear vision to be great influencers.

Without a vision for the future, personal and professional leadership development as well as superior communication skills training, many of today’s young leaders will spend the rest of their life asking “Do you want fries with that?”

J Loren Norris delivers an inspiring message about the need for a vision in life and leadership. This video excerpt was from a keynote speech delivered to 2500 high school students at Euless Trinity High School – Trojan Talk Assembly on 9-25-12 as the kick off for a one year student leadership mentoring program called the Nine Lessons of Mastery.

“People every day stand up and ask for help only to walk away with empty hands because they cannot connect with the people to whom they wish to appeal. More sales have been lost, more relationships damaged, more leaders abandoned, more visions not embraced and more causes not joined due to poor communication skills than by any other means.” J Loren Norris
