NMASC Recaps and Resources
Keynote - It’s the little things that make the biggest difference
Leadership is all about relationships.
The Webby Pledge - Break through conditioned responses.
5 Second sacrifices make all of the difference.
People want to do the right thing, they just need someone to do it first.
The Pinkie Wiggle - Little actions create big change.
As a leader be consistent and predictable in mood and actions.
The more you treat people with kindness, the more you will see the good in them.
Sometimes those people that are the hardest to give kindness to are those that need it the most.
Hurt people, hurt other people.
The Pinkie Wiggle - One life touches another and potentially both lives are changed; one life touches another and potentially the entire world is changed.
Deeper happiness comes from seeing good and doing good for others.
A basic human need is to be paid attention to and appreciated.
Kind > Nice - Anyone can be nice, it’s reactive, but kindness is proactive.
Kind compliments require us to develop the skill of seeing good in others and the courage and vulnerability to tell them about it.
The number one thing that people identify that they want from their leaders is TRUST.
There are three parts to the Triangle of Trust - Empathy, Authenticity, and Consistency.
Empathy - How do we build understanding with people? Everyone has a story.
Authenticity - How do we get more real? Live your Truth and Reflect on your Lies.
The 4 Big Lies get in the way of our leadership. (Perfection, Approval, Failure, Shame)
What is one thing that you would be willing to commit to doing daily to be consistent and predictable in mood and action.
