Team members from Dynamic Edge Consulting are focused on learning and professional development! This past weekend, the crew attended their Fall Leadership Development Seminar at the Courtyard Marriott in Orange County. Top performing industry leaders were selected to address the crowd of several hundred business professionals. Speakers covered a variety of topics, such as: mental strength and toughness, time and priority management, organizational expansion planning, and how to be a productive leader.
One of the speakers opened up with a quote from President Abraham Lincoln, where he said, “Give me six hours to cut down a tree, and I’ll spend the first four hours sharpening my saw.” That intro led into talking about the importance of taking the time for professional development, “sharpening that saw”, and the role that that plays in helping one achieve their goals.
The next speaker talked about how Jeff Bezos recently hit the net worth mark of 93 billion. “Your level of influence is directly correlated to your success,” he said. The speaker continued to give the audience notes on becoming stronger, more influential leaders in their field.
The final speaker talked about mental toughness and how mindset is a choice. He went on to give some tips on how people could start changing their mindset. This included reading books more often; the speaker suggested that the audience read the book, “Choose Yourself.” His next tip? Challenge conventional wisdom. You can change the way you think, just by deciding to do so. His final tip was to “have an attitude of gratitude.” Be grateful for the opportunity to have success, and for other people and their successes. “Gratitude and envy cannot live in the same heart,” he said.
By the end of the Leadership Development Seminar, the Dynamic Edge Consulting crew had pages of notes, and they were excited to get back to work, and to attack their goals. It was definitely a great learning experience and time well spent.
