All I can say about yesterday’s Leadership Development Institute (LDI) is WOW! For the first time, someone didn’t just give me the ‘how,’ but also the ‘why.’ What an incredible difference! I tossed and turned most of the night and finally got up at 3 a.m. this morning and immediately went to my desk to review my notes and feverishly starting typing my thoughts and ideas. I have not been this pumped up in at least 10 years! (As my grandfather would say, ‘You have awoken the bear.’) I’m finally able to cross the barrier from building a résumé to building a legacy.
Pam is great, but she was REALLY great as it related to our goals. She heard everything we said in our prep calls and didn’t miss a single detail in her presentation. Her segment provided some of the best evaluation remarks we have ever seen.
One of the best and most timely speakers I have ever heard. A true message from the heart. Thank you. She was very genuine, engaging, funny and motivating.
