The sold-out Women of Whistler event at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler on Tuesday, November 27 was a great way to spend the afternoon. Each time I attend a WOW event, I am always amazed at the diverse skills of the women attending and their ability to share their support and knowledge, whether they have known you for years or just met you that day.
Featuring guest speaker Dawn McCooey from the Women's Enterprise Centre, the topic of leadership drew a full crowd of local business women (and one brave man).
Dawn spoke about how to become a better leader by uncovering our leadership gifts. She outlined a very interesting framework of leadership: Pride, Passion, Purpose, Performance and Poise. It all starts with Pride. Think about your proudest moments, she said. These pride stories are the foundation of our leadership. By tapping into our proudest moments, we can fuel our leadership potential.
Our Pride leads us to our Passion. Dawn explained that you don't need to find your passion, it’s already in you. Passion makes everything more interesting. I think everyone can relate to a small task that seems so very enormous if there is no interest in it.
