I really enjoy doing training sessions. A 30-minute session is a challenge but I hope that those who participated tonight managed to get something from it. The pace was fast but the comments were great.
You have to stick with what you know best so I stuck with leadership. Becoming the person you need to be to make the difference you want to make. Used the book You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Leader by Mark Sanborn as the basis for teaching. It’s an easy read but packed full of useful and challenging thinking about leadership. The influence and inspiration come from the person not the position. This means, anyone can make a difference if they adopt the right habits.
Self-Mastery – thinking like the person you want to become; make time to think
Focus – an intentional choice that stops you from drifting
People Power – gaining the support and cooperation of others; more than just talking
Persuasive Communication – understanding that it’s the impact of what you say, not how long you say it for
Execution – how can you implement more; you build a reputation based on what you do – not just good intentions
Giving – live to make the world a better place for others, you win too
Tried to make it as practical as possible. If you were there – what’s the biggest challenge for you in applying these ideas to your world?
