Getting Ready for our Course Together

Length: 8 minutes|Difficulty: Easy

I’m looking forward to seeing you shortly. You have watched a couple of videos about communications as a leader, about taking responsibility for your communications, about the habits of daily preparation and we talked about Aristotle’s triad of Logos, Ethos and Pathos.

My lessons from the best teacher I ever had: Mr Eric Matz

If you learn everything in the textbook and can get 100% right on the quiz, you are worth $30 more. If you develop curiosity and a systematic approach to thinking about the world… you are worth infinitely more.

The 3 Types of Participant

  1. The Optimistic Idealist – happy, engaged… but a little naive.
  2. The Optimistic Realist – scared, aware of the consequences… but courageous and steps out of their comfort zone.
  3. The “Sent by HR” Participant – they already know this stuff. There is nothing we can do to open a closed mind.

Preparation Worksheets

There are 3 preparation worksheets that I would like you to print out and spend some time (45 minutes over a couple of days is best) reflecting and writing your ideas.
