One of my professional goals is help people do better in their careers and have a more balanced approach to life. One of the initiatives I started at work is showing my group webinars about leadership. It is very interesting later to observe people’s reaction and certain behavior changes.
The first one was Adam Grant’s Give and Take approach for success.
Today we watched Stew Friedman’s talk about Total Leadership, and how to combine personal and professional goals and think on what you really want in life.
I was very proud of our intern that reported to me at the end of the day how he pushed backed on a seemingly urgent request that in fact ended up not being urgent. This is huge in high power distance culture.
More to come later.
