I just returned from a very successful Boot Camp in Seattle yesterday. Thank you to those who attended…we had a lot of fun.
One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how important the group sessions are. Anyone who instructs or facilitates knows this fact – the answer is in the room. In other words, usually a question can always be answered by another attendee in the room. There was a question yesterday in the Boot Camp about PowerPoint and a couple different Campers had great suggestions and resources they were able to share with the group.
I encourage all of you to find a group of like-minded individuals to form a Mastermind Group. Regardless of how formal (or informal) you want to be, you will find your peers to have great knowledge. I just recently started up a Mastermind group with four other associates and it has paid dividends just in the short time we’ve been together.
Remember…the answer is in the room.
P.S. I’m planning two more Boot Camps in 2008. Make sure you get in on the fun. Here’s what one boot camper wrote – “Dan makes his class feel at ease…he really sets up attendees for success. I found the material on storytelling very valuable. I did re-tool my elevator speech and feel it is more effective.” Thanks for your kind words. Next time, will you join us? More to come…
I recently ran a four hour Toastmasters training session, whereby almost all of the input came from the delegates. They had all the answers, they just needed for their thinking to be focused.Craig
