Thursday, October 4 
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm  Registration 
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm  Personal Enrichment Session: Energy Leadership 
Energy Leadership is a defined means of understanding how we, as leaders, use our energy to lead and influence ourselves and those around us. You may be saying, “I have energy, tell me more!” Check out the short story below that really illuminates how this works in a nutshell.

A new leadership development program was being piloted in one of the San Diego resorts of a reputable vacation ownership company. All associates of the resort could apply to be considered for an opportunity to participate. In the breakroom that afternoon, a conversation was overheard between 2 associates. Sarah was venting to John about this new program. “Can you believe that to participate, they want us to put in a few extra hours every week for the so called development opportunity?” Why do we have to go through more hoops just to be promoted around here?? John responded to Sarah, “I can see your point, Sarah, but I’m definitely putting my application in and taking the opportunity to further my development. Who knows where it could lead?”

This short story illustrates a key difference between anabolic and catabolic leaders. Two people, faced with the same situation, yet having two totally different reactions. What's the difference between them? In a word, ENERGY! Sarah demonstrated catabolic energy while John showcased anabolic energy.

When you think about your reaction to situations around you, do you tend to resonate more with Sarah or John? Join the Energy Leadership workshop and learn more about how it works and the benefits you can experience immediately both personally and professionally.
