However, this is a story of one of the Success-Minded Leaders who inspired the creation of our leadership development curriculum.
Kemper demonstrates each of the nine Success Mindsets (vision, passion, perseverance, self-motivation, seizing opportunities, risk taking, positive thinking, compassion and creativity), as did the other 148 leaders we studied.
Using a combination of sheer passion, perseverance and vision, Kemper was relentless in finding a solution to his impossible dream.
And his thinking paid off. He proved the naysayers wrong. After many attempts to find a solution to his dilemma, he discovered one expert with an innovative perspective – someone who was a risk-taker, like Kemper, who thought creatively, who was willing to do the unorthodox.
By building free parking that connected directly to the upper levels of the mall, they solved the problem. Now, all shoppers had to pass by the upper level shops on their way to the rest of the mall. The second-story retail stores flourished.
This model has been replicated many times over throughout the country, spawning other thriving shopping centers.
