GV ASTD met on March 8 for a very interesting and engaging session by member Bob Whipple, The Trust Ambassador, on how to help executives stop playing "whack-a-mole" and start leading. As always, Bob got participants to think, see outside the box, and explore ideas outside of their reality -- and was entertaining to boot.
He started with asking the audience "what's so different today for leaders than just a few years ago? Globalization, cell phones...bottom line, as a leader, "you're always on." So then, more importantly, what is the role of GV ASTD members who support and advise leaders? The group's answer was "To see reality; to view things differently."
