Lessons from a CEO encounter
My business is 4yrs this month, I can hardly believe it.
I was humbled last week when one of my clients booked for 100 employees to attend my meeting masterclass: run meetings with clear outcomes.
The most satisfying bit was having the CEO join the 1-hour masterclass. It gets better, the CEO then took the time to thank me for it afterwards.
This felt incredibly gratifying and I haven’t stopped smiling.
This experience re-energised me. I’ve taken time to reflect just on why that is, here is what I think..
- Leaders who act, inspire. Acknowledging opportunity for improvement & then actually acting on it and measuring it puts a business streets ahead of one who just talks about it.
- Leaders who have a support structure, expediate outcomes. Building meaningful partnerships allows you to learn and to grow faster. Every business has a unique flair to it and you don’t need to be great at all things.
- Leaders who try new things, fuel bravery. It is easy to keep doing things the way you know how, the way you’ve always done them. It takes effort to try a new way of working and/or thinking but often when you do, the rewards are worth it.
Thank you CEO for showing me the kind of leader I want to be in my business.
