At the end of the workshop, each participant compiled one great idea they walked away with and committed to focusing on at work. See the list below in the article section of the newsletter.

Become the Leader Others Want to Follow
I recommend looking at the list below and identify the top 3 things that you could either implement today, learn more about tomorrow or bring into your life this week or next.
1) Ask yourself: What do I want to improve today? Where can I start?
2) When attempting to lead: Pretend you are them...sit in their shoes for a while
3) Don't be afraid to use your gifts
4) Identify your gifts, learn how to leverage them and utilize them effectively
5) Ask employees what three things I can do as a leader to improve the company
6) Discover your top two talents and use them today
7) Become aware of your gifts and learn how to strategically use them in the workplace
8) A gift is something you are born with, a skill is an acquired ability
9) It is clear that in order for business to succeed in the
21st century, we need to focus on Service and Human Beings
10) Think about how my gifts relate to my goals
11) To develop leaders, helped them discover their gifts
12) We can all become better leaders by aligning ourselves with our innate gifts
13) Discover your gifts and build upon them until they become natural and effective in the work environment
14) Let people do their job, be receptive to multiple ways of getting results
15) Be more effective in showing my employees how important they are
16) Give employees room to fail
17) Ask yourself what have you done lately to let your employees know they are important

Coaching Client - Words Of Wisdom
When my coach asked, "What emotional payoff are you getting from over-committing?" that was a powerful question for me. Before this conversation I never equated my chronic over-commitment with any emotional satisfaction or need being met. I had the freedom to explore that question during our session which allowed me to identify my motivation: the love and approval of others. (I also recognize that a part of me doesn't want to miss out on the fun in some instances.) Recognizing that I'm making these choices to please others was a powerful and painful realization.
