Find out the one thing Americans need to tap into their potential

American Majority Action this month is excited to host, in partnership with the Unlocking Potential Project, the Unlocking Potential All-Star Workshop with Carly Fiorina and Hugh Hewitt. Attendees at this free Denver, Colorado workshop will hear from the American Conservative Union chairwoman as she addresses the important issues facing America and what the average citizen can do about them.

Check out this quick clip from earlier this year (see below or click here to watch) when Ms. Fiorina discusses why conservative ideals work better, citing the problem of a growing culture of dependency and suggesting a commonsense solution.

“Progressives are … trying to continue a cycle of dependency. Conservatives know that people aren’t poor because they lack ambition … intelligence or potential. They lack the tools to tap into their potential and the opportunity to unleash potential,” she said.

5 ways to unlock your potential in the workplace


American Conservative Union Chairwoman and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina Sat. Aug. 23, during the free “Unlocking Potential All-Star Workshop with Carly Fiorina and Hugh Hewitt”, will have more to say about maximizing your talents but, for now, we at American Majority Action have a few of our own tips for you.

1. Build a strong network of friends and supporters 

Office coffee break

That happy hour on your calendar you’d rather not go to — go! You might be surprised by the people you meet and the friendships you forge regardless of whether you aspire to political office. And, if you’re really motivated, invite fellow professionals out for coffee for a chance to talk shop and the latest industry initiatives.

2. The early bird gets the worm

Wake up cell message

We all know the old aphorism “the early bird gets the worm.” So, instead of hitting the snooze button on your alarm or iPhone, consider jumping out of bed early. Getting to work 10 minutes ahead of schedule can help build much-needed momentum going into a busy workday. And, after all, what’s better than the look on your boss’s face when he or she realizes you beat him into the office? #winning #itsthesmallthings

3. You are your biggest advocate


American Majority Action board member Matt Robbins says it himself: Never sell yourself short. Instead, quantify every project you’ve worked on and add it to your professional repertoire. Whether you manage a social-media account, have developed various business leads or spearheaded a major event, measure the success of the project(s) and pitch those experiences to prospective clients or employers when the opportunity arises.

4. Take some time for self-reflection

What are your strengths and weaknesses? How effectively are you using your time at work? Are you prioritizing your to-do list? Actively seeking to strengthen your weaker skill sets may free up time to focus more on the tasks you excel at as you’ll spend less time worrying about the chink in your chain mail.

5. Don’t climb into those PJs right after work

There are few things more tempting than kicking back and uncorking a bottle of wine or opening a beer after a stressful day at work. But, don’t climb into those pajamas right away. Instead, blow off some steam with a 30-minute run or return that phone call from your long-lost friend — or read a chapter in that book that’s been sitting on your shelf for months. Taking time after work to complete recreational and personal tasks gives more work-life separation and reconnects you with the people that matter most.

Carly Fiorina is chairwoman of the American Conservative Union and started her career working as a secretary for a small real-estate business. She then joined AT&T in an entry-level sales position and, five years later, was managing the AT&T spin-out of Lucent Technologies and then Lucent’s North American operations. She was recruited in 1999 to be chairwoman and CEO of Hewlett-Packard, where she doubled revenue; quadrupled growth; tripled the rate of innovation; and achieved market leadership in every market and product category and quadrupled cash flow. In addition to her corporate career, Ms. Fiorina has served on numerous advisory and policy-making positions for national and state governments. In addition, she in 2012 made Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) sweat for her Senate seat, amassing more votes than any other Republican nationwide that election cycle and raising $25 million. The entrepreneur credits her parents with instilling in her an unshakable faith — a faith that later carried her through a bout with cancer and the tragic death of her daughter Lori — experiences that have taught her the highest calling of leadership is unlocking the potential in others.

Hugh Hewitt is a longtime broadcast journalist whose nationally syndicated weekly radio show airs in more than 120 cities nationwide. He is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Michigan Law School, and has been teaching Constitutional law at Chapman University since 1995. The radio personality is a frequent guest on CNN, Fox News Network and MSNBC, and has written for the New York Times; The Wallstreet Journal and the Los Angeles Times. A former Reagan administration appointee, Professor Hewitt served a number of years in the White House, including time as assistant counsel. In addition to authoring a dozen books, including two New York Times best-sellers, he is a weekly columnist for The Washington Examiner and Townhall.com. He and his wife live in Orange County, California.
