Workshop Outline

Principle One - Hard Work

One of the best ways to lead by example is to work hard. Talent and luck will only get you so far. More than what you say, your work ethic will speak volumes to your team.

Principle Two - Kindness

It sounds simple but just being nice adds value to people. It can change the world in an instant when you are kind to each person you meet.

Principle Three - Gratitude

Every one of us has an obligation to ourselves and our business associates to be grateful for the opportunities that surround us. It makes people want to be around you and assist you in business.

Principle Four - Enthusiasm 

To be successful for the long run, you must love what you do. If you don't ooze enthusiasm about what you are doing, how can you expect anyone else to be excited?

Principle Five - Vision

Vision is seeing the future as you want it to be. Visionairies have a knack of seeing possibiliites that are hidden from others. You need enough imagination to recognize advantageous opportunities.

Principle Six - Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity encompasses acceptance of all the elements that make individuals unique. Inclusion is about respecting the differences - actions and norms that make certain that people feel welcome.

Principle Seven - Competitive Greatness

You want to deliver your peak performance when greatness is required. You must be results-oriented. If you love what you do, you should enjoy a challenge.
