There isn’t a day that goes by that some remembered point

I am very thankful to have recently had the opportunity and privilege of taking the Leadership Training Classes. When I heard about them on the radio a part of me wanted to take them, but the rest of me knew it was way out of my comfort zone. Despite the misgivings and butterflies, I made the call. That was the easy part. I remember walking across the parking lot the morning of the first class thinking I should probably just turn and run. From somewhere deep within the courage emerged to open the door and walk in. My fears soon vanished as I was warmly welcomed by Dane, and minutes later made to feel at home by Kerrie. From then on I was hooked!

As we were taught, leadership is influence. I knew either positive or negative, I was being an influence in my sphere of relationships, especially with my kids. I also knew I needed more ammo than I had to raise 3 teenage boys to be successful leaders and team players. And ammo I got! Dane taught us much and many positive, practical insights I will use for the rest of my life, and had fun at the same time! 

Usually I’m not one for retaining a lot of information all at once, but the way the material was presented along with the excellent pictures, stories and illustrations it was absorbed easily.

My daily dozen are a part of my life now and I plan on passing that down to my kids and future grandkids. There isn’t a day that goes by that some remembered point doesn’t pop into my head and I get back on track.

I learned to ask myself, “What is the goal in this situation?” that question alone cuts through the garbage and saves a lot of useless words and precious time. There was so much learned this could go on for days, but I’ll never forget what status quo really means and for Pete’s sake, Q-tip! The bottom line is, I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. 

Thank you, Dane, for the gift of transferring valuable information to others in such a humble and gifted way. You totally believe in what you teach and live it out in your life. 

Thank you, Kerrie, for your friendship. You are truly an enormous asset to the leadership team.
