Fall Leader Summit: Be a Goldfish! Ideas for Staying Afloat

"Be a goldfish!" You might be asking yourself: why would anyone want to be a fish with a 3-second memory? Well, it turns out goldfish have some rather admirable qualities! For starters, they're quite resilient; they are able to survive water changes, disease, and even cold winters. They're also very social; they love socializing with fellow goldfish and are known to be peaceful towards other types of fish.

If you find this approach interesting, please join Luis Hernandez for an exploration of, "how to be a goldfish". Participants will learn how to build thriving teams through respect for diverse opinions, setting up for challenges and growth, and the power of staying positive and resilient. So what are you waiting for? Let's dive in!
