Keep it Simple - BE GOOD!
This year’s Re/Max Activate conference was held at Whistler mountain last week. Of course I went! Nothing like 600 people excited about their work and careers sharing their stories.
It was a great learning experience as well as being lots of fun; chatting, laughing, and dancing! The Chateau Whistler was a wonderful venue; fabulous setting, good food and not a rubber chicken in sight!
The reason I am sharing this event with you because not only was a great time had by all, but because of the amazing keynote speaker that the Re/Max team brought in. John Herdman is coach of the Canadian Women’s Soccer Team; an unusual choice, perhaps, for a group of real estate agents. His message, however, was universal and inspiring. His sincerity and passion resonated deeply.
John stresses the importance of developing a high performance culture, learning to overcome adversity with grace, and the role of leaders to inspire trust, confidence, and success in every aspect of life, work or home. John’s message was simple:
“Be good!” At the same time, the simplicity is complex.
How do we apply that basic principle of being good every day? Some days are more challenging than others and I have occasionally wanted to throw myself on the floor and have a tantrum. I am sure you have too!
His philosophy is be good every day and that consistency grows into greatness.
Here’s what I took away from John’s talk: a passion to create an exceptional business for my clients, where I could put their needs ahead of my own; to create a seamless and stress free event for each and every client; to be good to everyone I meet in this business; to be above board with all of my transactions; to inspire trust and loyalty; to motivate and empower others.
What will it mean to you to “Be Good” every day? I am grateful every day for the opportunity to serve you; my family, friends, and clients. Thank you for letting me share a passionate moment with you!
