A Great Tired
I had a rewarding week. It began with an Emergenetics workshop at the PI on Tuesday. I got the chance to work with people from various organizations throughout Columbus. I love to see the expressions on people's faces when they begin to learn more about themselves. Emergenetics does this for me.
Wednesday I drove nearly four hours to Athens, Alabama, where on Thursday morning I presented the workshop, Lead Different. Various constituencies from throughout the community participated in the three hour class. I want to thank Dr. Robert White, Assistant Professor, Religion, for inviting me. He is a true servant leader and should be applauded for his efforts to bring servant leadership to Athens (although I think the community is already practicing it).
It is great to work with people who get it. This is in no way a knock on anyone else. But there is something about teaching people who want to learn. It makes my job easier and more fun.
This explains why I am so tired this morning. But it is a good tired. Heck, it is a great tired. I had two wonderful workshops this week. And I met some beautiful people. When a group wants to be taught, it increases my motivation tenfold. I give my all even more. Every ounce of energy is drained from my body. As exhausted as I am, I could not wait to share this post with you. I am writing this at 5:15 this morning...lol.
Coincidentally, this is the same feeling I had last week when I traveled to Hanceville, Alabama to present the Playing Nice in the Sandbox workshop to the leadership team at Wallace State Community College. I do not think that I have ever met such a cohesive group of employees who love their place of work more. Dr. Vicki Hawsey is doing a fantastic job in being a leading force, not just at the college, but within Hanceville community.
I hope you have an enjoyable weekend. Don't forget to checkout Saturday and Sunday's posts. I will see you on Monday.
