This week’s focus point: I learn more than anyone in the room when I teach, coach, consult, and facilitate, which is the only reason I continue to do so with such zest. My learning from the nearly 200 people at my Consulting Convention in Atlanta last week includes: Healthy people are optimistic and encouraging and we merely have to perpetuate that attitude in them. If you trust talented people to do a fine job and stay out of their business, everyone will be fine. People are thrilled to learn from experts, but also to learn from peers. You never have to “sell” a thing if you merely do an outstanding job. If you’re not having fun, no one else will be having fun. It’s never about how hard you work, it’s about the talent you attract to get things done (presenters, volunteers, facility, A/V). It’s better to try and fail then never to try, but it’s a huge thrill to try and succeed beyond your own expectations. In other words, you can’t get a hit if you don’t get up to bat.
