Get a Gift, Give a Gift

Christmas presents

 

This Friday, December 6 from 8-9 am is the next First Fridays Fort Wayne session featuring Amy Hanna. So why should you and your colleagues attend?

Get a Gift.  That’s right, if you attend you’ll receive a gift.  The gift of connections and networking.  You’ll meet some of the finest leaders in NE Indiana on Friday.  Making a meaningful connection is a great gift to receive.  This gift will give back as you learn what leadership looks like at area businesses, as you will be challenged by Amy, and as you realize how blessed our community is to have leaders like the ones you’ll meet.

Give a Gift.  Be open to meet and connect with someone new to you.  Invest your time on Friday to make a connection that can lead to a time of coffee or lunch.  Be sure to be ready to add value to those you meet.  Give yourself and your connections with the intention of helping others around you to become better.

There is still time to register for this free event.  Click on the image below to register today!

An Endorsement

I came across this today. My son had to write a short paper a couple of years ago in school. I’ll take this endorsement any time!

If you want to know the heart and passion behind First Fridays, my son captured it in his paper…

Favorite leader

My favorite leader is my dad. He had the courage to influence others, by creating a business where he helps everyday citizens, become confident with what they do. The business is non-profitable (love this!) and meets once every month. He brings in some of Fort Wayne’s top leaders and lets them help others. He is fearless of meeting new people.

A few months ago he went down to Canada to speak at a university in front of hundreds of people. He has integrity, because he loves doing his job but, he also has the integrity to help others learn and grow as leaders.

He is amazing at communicating. He gets the message out to people, that no matter where they work, no matter if they don’t have a job, they can still be great leaders in their community. When they meet they talk about how to lead others to become leaders.

He and my uncle were having a get together, and they said they wanted to have the community grow as leaders. They have been extremely successful and are still working hard to get new leaders in the community. He has been very supportive of people when they feel they aren’t doing a good enough job at work. He ran the student counsel at Haverhill elementary, and talked to us about how we can be leaders at school. He would also be glad to come in and talk to our class about leadership sometime. (I gave you his card).
