Between my teaching assignments, training programs, and speaking engagements, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to teach many teams including traditional and non-traditional classes, as well as corporate and non-profit audiences. As I think about my audiences, I’m struck by a strong common theme: community.
People want community. People want to belong.
This past weekend was the Pro Football Hall of Fame weekend. This was also the same weekend for the World Golf Championship – Bridgestone Invitational. All within a 15 mile radius of where I live. According to some economists these two events bring well over a million people to the area and an estimated $40 million in new revenue. This creates hundreds of jobs and is a huge boost to the economy.
You know what else it brings?
