I am a Leader Causing Leaders [Part 3]

This post is likely to appear as a vomit of inspiration. How do you sum up a jam packed weekend in a cohesive manner?

Here are some quotes and ideas and thing I picked up at LEADERS CAUSING LEADERS 2011

 

There was this one super inspiring (mostly raw) vegan speaker, Raven Starr (she recommended this free numerology report that changed her life) really made me excited and proud to be vegan.

Another speaker I really loved was Guru Singh. He had some good quotes…

“You are weird!” – GURU SINGH

He led us through many breathing exercises.

“The idea that beauty is something other than you is absurd.” – GURU SINGH

He also talked about words a lot:

Human = Hue + Man (meaning the brain-mind connection)

Woman = Womb (meaning the future) + Man (meaning the brain-mind connection)

Another interesting thins was the 4 Steps to Compassionate Communication: Observations, Feelings, Needs and Requests which I found very similar to Clear Leadership’s Observations, Thoughts, Feelings and Wants.

I noticed many similarities between different presenters and previous leadership workshops I have done. I think all leadership presentations come down to these 3 things:

  1. Communication: How to share and connect with others
  2. Ownership: Some concept of taking responsibility for one’s own actions and experience
  3. Tools: Apologizing, Acknowledgment, Praise, Rewards… ideas of motivating and inspiring others
