Keys to Success What is the inner game that produces the visible results we produce? How do we draw attention to the interconnected and interdependent nature of thinking habits, emotional empowerment, language and our presence with results? It requires prioritizing one’s awareness: visioning/dreaming, reflecting/pondering and getting real about multitasking and so many habits that are self-sabotaging.
As a part of Essentials of Effective Leadership, a training program designed specifically for the GRCA, Tom Rhoads speaks on authenticity, intuition, and five character attributes, core competencies, and mindsets and cross reference the GRCA programs. One of the central keys is our emotions, and although we may find some common ground with traditional emotional intelligence themes, our focus will be on emotional empowerment. While those themes are indeed rational and essential keys to success, the amazing thing is that they are all felt by the professional and all they encounter.
