Mark Villareal says “Nothing is more exciting than to watch individuals develop and grow”.
Early in Mark’s business career he realized that it is a privilege as well as a responsibility to coach and help develop people to success. To help make an impact, one person at a time, one group, or one business at a time, can affect so many lives and so many dreams. To have the ability to help others realize more potential and to push them to higher limits beyond even their wildest dreams and expectations is the most fulfilling experience a leader can have. This love is why he wakes up each day excited, focused and in awareness that he may find and help that next person, team, or business.
My Mission Statement: To pay it forward by elevating leadership development one person, one team and one organization at a time.
Leaders are individuals that choose to be coachable and are hungry to learn and develop.
Servant leaders advance because they believe humility is a strength, not a weakness, which allows them to understand they can learn from everyone, and they do. Great leaders build everything on a solid foundation of values and principles and their reward is the success and growth of those they lead. Great leaders pay it forward.
Early in Mark’s career he had the privilege of employing several single mothers. This was not a strategy as it grew organically as one single mother would refer another. Each had the “I cannot fail attitude” and they would ask about extra items they could study and would seek out his coaching. Our location, which was part of a worldwide franchise operation won the most outstanding location from over 260 worldwide at that time. Their success truly drove his success and was a clear example that the more he focused on their success, the more his grew naturally. It helped Mark Villareal see servant leadership in action, as the best way to build long term success. From that point on, he has worked to pay it forward in working with women leaders or those aspiring to be leaders for them to grow, develop and contribute.
