Behind the Leadership Curtain: One Surprising Secret of How People Become Successful Leaders
This session explores how, as human beings, we’re all susceptible to “junk mail” in our minds. Like the unwanted mail, we receive in our inboxes, these messages signal that we don’t measure up and we need riches, power, and external validation to be successful. When our filters fail us and we “click” on these messages, they release malware in our minds. The resulting onslaught of negative messages has the power to stall our careers and our dreams. The session reveals how successful leaders deal with junk mail more effectively by designing better filters.
Participants learn the three ways to design effective filters and four action steps to help achieve their goals.
