Great Minds Think Alike!
In our efforts to cover unique and relevant content to the industry, we are sharing some thoughts here from some of the brightest minds in the industry. When I was at the recent PMANC Regional Association event in beautiful Monterey, Calif., someone suggested that we cover the PPAI Women’s Leadership Conference (WLC), which this year happened to be just three hours away, in San Diego.
Of course, I never would have thought of that, but since I love San Diego and the opportunity to bring fresh content to the industry, we chose to use the WLC as a launching point for a variety of insightful material that will be shared by some brilliant people. More content like this will follow. My amazing collaborator on this, Glenda Stormes-Bice, representative for Bankers Advertising, interviewed a few of the women who attended the PPAI Women’s Leadership Conference and compiled their thoughts in words below. Links to the video interviews we filmed are also included.
Our goal is to bring insightful information to you that will be helpful in your personal and professional development. To that end, we will be presenting a FreePromoTips SuccessTracks Online Learning Experience to cover more of this valuable content. This SuccessTracks session will be bought to you with the support of Southern Plus and The Vernon Company. You won’t want to miss what’s coming!
In our conversations, we discovered that successful leaders have many of the same skills and articulate some thought-provoking ideas. We share them with you here, in no particular order.
Teach Decision Making Skills: The promotional product business can be described in many ways, but most would agree that in its simplest form we create experiences and solutions for people. This highly individualized process means that one day is never the same as the next. Being successful means we must enlist the help of others, and empower them to be able to make decisions.
