Doug Keeley @MarkofaLeader
|What is the lens through which people see you? If you don't shape your image, someone else will. https://pixabay.com/static/uploads/photo/2015/08/05/08/47/personal-875801_960_720.jpg|
|We all have a story to tell. Stories are the glue that bind us together as humans. https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7520/16044203109_e587afb08c_z.jpg|
"Beyond the Tin Can Telephone"

|Make sure to appreciate those around you...|
it doesn't have to be eloquent but it has to be heartfelt.

"Thriving Through Action"
Virginia Gingras @VirginiavsBruce
|What are your top 3 priorities?|
Thinking about your top 3 priorities,
do your actions reflect those priorities?
|Our strength overplayed becomes our weakness. |
Are you missing work life balance?
Are you really good at taking care of others but do you provide the same care for yourself?
We're really good at surviving but we need to thrive.
Don't forget about your dreams!http://www.pdpics.com/preview/preview33/6414-work-balance-life.jpg
|Instead of sharing achievements, share how you thrive through challenges...|
this is powerful learning.
|Great ideas are a dime a dozen but what makes a great idea different is action, |
particularly taking action through challenges.
How do you avoid being derailed between your idea and the follow through to completion.
When dealing with self doubt and fear, remember that sometimes when you're in a situation you can't truly see the situation or solutions.When you come upon naysayers, remember- it's not their dream, it's your dream
"Visible Learning, Visible Leading"
Patrick Miller @millerpEDU
|Build a diverse professional learning network (PLN)...diverse being key. |
We gravitate to people who are similar to ourselves.
We learn more from people who have different experiences and challenge our ideas.
|When considering any change, use the framework of these system drivers.|
Also consider, what are your personal drivers?
|We spend too much time and effort building rigid systems in the name of sustainability. |
We need to be agile and flexible enough to respond to a changing world.
