Session: Power of Pivotal Moments
Those small moments that can make a difference. Those pivotal moments. It’s a question asked, or a decision made that, when nurtured, provides the opportunity to transform into something you couldn’t have imagined at that moment. That moment today can have a great impact tomorrow.
We all have pivotal moments. I have reflected on my Lean-Agile journey that started over 15 years ago and will share with you some of my pivotal moments. I will share what the moment was, the lesson, and the impact. While my moments are different than your moments, we can learn from each other and the lesson from it to lead us to greater and better things.
As leaders we shape the organization’s culture through our words and our actions. That moment when we take time to listen. When we are present. Empowering. Encouraging. Through these actions we convey trust.
As individuals, your curiosity, your willingness to step up and take chances, your commitment to learn and grow makes a difference. Combining these traits coupled with the support of leadership is the focus of this presentation.
Seize the moment. Be tenacious. Follow through. Be kind. You never know the difference a few moments can make. And you just might be in a pivotal moment now.
