Our willingness to own and engage with our vulnerability determines the depth of our courage and the clarity of our purpose; the level to which we protect ourselves from being vulnerable is a measure of our fear and disconnection.
This past week I had the privilege and opportunity to spend time with one of our largest clients in Atlanta, GA. They created a unique space for fellowship, reflection on the previous year, planning for the future, and equipping its leaders to execute on strategies which will lead them closer to their 2020 vision. I was inspired by the experience and want to share with you some of the best practices I observed.
The final 90 days of the year are upon us. All the plans you made, goals you set, and promises you made will be examined, scrutinized, and assessed in the weeks ahead. Before you put yourself under the microscope and start counting the wins and losses, you need to remember there are still 90 days of life and leadership left in the year.
The final day of the Building Champions Experience provided Jerry Baker, CEO Mentor Coach, the opportunity to share what he has learned about life and business over the past fifty years.
Day 3 of the Building Champions Experience saw a shift from a focus on planning your personal life to a focus on business vision and tactical solutions to help attendees grow and lead their business and team.
Day 2 of the Building Champions Experience began with a simple message and principle: “Self-leadership precedes team leadership”. In other words, I can’t lead, sell, operate or be effective in my business if my personal life is not properly aligned to my priorities. I can’t lead those I love and serve with the energy and passion that is needed if I’m failing to lead myself.
The Building Champions Experience opened last night with a wonderful message from coaches Daniel Harkavy and James Allison. The theme of their message was that taking the time to reflect, plan, and connect is a unique gift that we must accept and maximize if we are to live and lead with purpose.

This week I will be in Sunriver, Oregon where my company will be hosting the Building Champions Experience. This four day event attracts leaders from across the nation and provides them with time, space, and coaching to help them reflect on their life and business, plan for the year ahead, and connect with other like-minded professionals.
I will be blogging from the event, providing my readers with a daily recap of key take-aways and experiences. You can follow the event on social media as well:

While being in the present is important, you must take time to reflect on the bigger picture. You must not lose sight of your overall strategy and plan for your life and business. Failure to do this can very quickly lead to feeling overwhelmed and anxious. Two feelings that will kill productivity and purposeful living and leading.
