NMASC Recaps and Resources

Keynote - It’s the little things that make the biggest difference

Quick Recap

  • 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.
