I am back with the Ministry of Justice for their second day of training today.
Years ago, I was speaking at a conference and an attendee said to me, “Are you here for the stupid conference too?” I smiled and I said to her, “I sure am.” You could just see the look on her face when I got on stage. The look said, “OMG did I actually say that to her?”
I get it. Another conference. Another speaker. Hiring speakers and hosting training days are a way that leaders thank their teams. Truly. I would challenge you to change how you view your meetings.
