Nuggets and gems from my final boot camp

My pick of the best things I learnt at Boot Camp #3

  • Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment
  • What is your elevator pitch? – who are you? what do you do? what are your values? what are you passionate about? what do you want?
  • Someone needs to make the hard decisions, sometimes you need a certain level of ruthlessness
  • Recruiting the enemy is twice as effective as killing them
  • Point your team in a clear direction, give them lots of encouragement and trust.  Then being good will boost their morale.
  • Be a squirrel – collect and store information and stimulus
  • Ask ‘so what?’ (I do that a lot!)
  • Dare to dream.  Make it happen.
  • How far do you dare yourself to go?
  • What do your fears/weaknesses help you do better?
  • Set challenges to your team out of their comfort zone and nurture/encourage and offer safety
  • If you have talented junior people in your team get them sponsors and supporters across the business.  Encourage them to hand raise.
  • Grit plus self belief will bring success
  • Don’t give time to worry, it’s time wasted
  • Get a regular dose of people who excite and motivate you
  • This is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time.

    Love this – thanks for sharing. My only other ones to add were “follow your beating heart over your aching head” (thank you Amanda) and “be a warrior not a worrier” (thank you Arthur)
