There are very few moments in my leadership career when I have experienced such a team victory that the moment seemed surreal and the pain and exhaustion from hard work was swept away by a flood of emotion.
This past weekend was a moment like that. I attended what I would describe as the most impactful and significant event in my leadership journey thus far. It’s called the LIFE Fall Leadership Convention and words escape me to adequately express the impact of this 3 day experience.
Since the LIFE community made its debut almost a year ago, its mission has been to connect a growing number of people who are passionate about making a significant difference by helping others in various areas of their life which is called the 8 Fs. This community of leaders has experienced unbelievable growth and has created opportunities beyond our wildest dreams.
Thanks to the passion of a few amazing leaders from Canada, including LIFE co-founder Claude Hamilton, a 90 day vision was cast to shatter all growth records in LIFE community building. To be part of an incredible group of people that lock arms and strive for a common goal develops a synergy that can produce a team accomplishment that simply could never be achieved as an individual. In other words, Together Everyone Achieves More.
With world class mentorship, and the unification of a team of committed people, the Top Gun Power Player achievement was awarded to the Kaizen Unified family. Under the amazing leadership of Wayne & Raylene Macnamara, and the council of Claude & Lana Hamilton, this team (and many other teams) exploded their organizations and demonstrated what a committed group of servant leaders will do for their team. I love the win-win culture of this organization and am so proud to be part of it!
Congratulations to every member of the LIFE community. It is said that a rising tide lifts all ships and the tide is coming in! This event was proof positive that when a community comes together with a shared vision, lives are changed.
