WIFS Portland Metro
March Lunch and Learn
“Leadership at the TOP: Taking you and your business to the next level”
With Speaker Victoria Trabosh
What if you could change what you’re capable of accomplishing with the reminder that the view you have of the situation is critical to your ability to solve its problems?
How does personal integrity truly affect your business and personal life?
What if the awareness of your strengths instead of focus on your weaknesses was the game changer for your future?
Victoria Trabosh addressed these questions at our March Lunch and Learn. Victoria describes her style of speaking as a “hug and a punch.” Attendees left the lunch feeling inspired and challenged to be stronger leaders! Her book is “Dead Rita’s Wisdom” and nearly everyone purchased a copy! Get your copy here.
Vicky used the giraffe as an analogy for leadership:
- Long neck represents the ability to see long distances
- Strong body represents being grounded
- It has the largest heart of any land animal, and as leaders we need to have big hearts
- It’s connected to its young and its herd
- Represents sticking one’s neck out
- Can respond proactively if they see danger coming
Grounded – Intentionally operating from a place of integrity
Invest in People
Radical – Never waste a crisis; Show leadership when other’s hesitate; Believes in the goal in spite of present circumstances
Accountable to Shareholders
Factual – Operate from a place of reality not fantasy
