Profound Quotes from the Igniting Leadership Program

17 October 2016 By Kath Knott, Nexus Primary Health

Our focus for day three of the Igniting Leadership Program included Drivers of Change (Rob Hart), Coaching (Marion Macleod) and the FIRO-B profiling tool (Lynn Scoles).

We started our morning with a quick round of speed networking (similar to speed dating) to bring us together, reflect upon last weeks sessions and how we have begun to put into practice the things we have learnt.

As a lover of quotes I thought I might sum today up in the quotes provided by our highly talented and skilled speakers:

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Our calm presence liberates others from fear

It all starts with knowing and coming to terms with yourself

If you are planting for one year, grow rice. If you are planting for twenty years, grow trees. If you are planting for centuries, grow people

Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance

You've got to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was

We finished with more practical tips and strategies to implement todays teachings in our workplace. It is an amazing group to be a part of, energetic and authentic, and I look forward to day four.
