It’s Okay to Look Back, just Don’t Live in It

I was decluttering over the weekend and found a newspaper clipping from 5 years ago. This is from the first leadership conference I was able to participate in as both a keynote/workshop and with multiple speakers in one day.  It was one of those “I remember it like yesterday” moments because of the unique format of the workshops.  For each breakout session, only two speakers were offered to the attendees.  Prior to the breakout time and after a keynote, those two presenters were required to go on stage and “sell” their workshop to the audience so they can make an informed decision.  To a natural “upfront personality type” ,  I ate it up.  So did the other guy with me who happened to also be named Scott.  We co-branded our promotion time as “Whichever you choose, you won’t go wrong with Scott.”

On the other hand, I remember during our promotion rehearsal time that some of the other speakers were very nervous about this opportunity to sell themselves.  It reminds me how some people want a piece of paper to tell their story and are not prepared for the interview.  I constantly remind myself to think like a business owner when I with people.  Not that I constantly selling a product or service, but how I present myself is very important to build trust and confidence in a relationship.  While enjoyed that moment in the bright lights, I realize I can’t live it everyday, but I can learn from it.

Experience It to Remember It

As an individual who has sat through conferences and workshops, I always enjoyed having the opportunity to get up and physically move so that I was an active member in the presentation. I make my audiences aware of this by sharing the following:   You remember 10% of what your Hear, 15% of what you Read and 80% of what you Experience.  Oftentimes when you are part of a team building exercise they use experiences to show cause and effect.  I have been and learned from some of the best.  (Mike Hall with Strong Fathers Strong Families and Dr. Robert Rohm with Personality Insights whom I am a consultant)  It is the heart of how I teach and train.  What did you experience today that you will never forget?

Susana Bailey,V.P Assistant for Wal-Mart and IAAP Conference Chair (Annual Regional Conference)
Your presentation was the perfect mix of a serious business message, along with an  engaging, humorous  delivery.  As a host of the conference, it was really nice to enjoy a well prepared, yet spontaneous high energy session. Having attended one of your sessions previously, this once again was truly an enjoyable experience. Landing in the “personality section” that I was in, was right as rain! My personality shouts: “No worries – It will get done”! We hope to work with you again in the future. Thank you so much!

We All have a Hand in Quality Conference

They came from near and far to attend the Rockline Industries “We All have a Hand in Quality” conference held in Northwest Arkansas. Associates from Wisconsin,  New Jersey, Arkansas and the United Kingdom were present at the conference.  Each of the associates was sharing best practices related to ideas that were implemented within their plant locations.  With a focus on quality and teamwork, Scott conducted an after lunch keynote to train on human behavior and communication.

For those who have heard Scott speak, you will hear his phrase often “People are what Life and Business are All about.”  It’s about the People.

While the conference focus was themed around “quality”, it is always a good time to teach individuals about themselves and how they are wired and the best way for them to communicate with others.  Since the associates were from different parts of the company and the globe, it was interesting for them to see the strengths in each of their personalities.

Enjoy this quick video of pics that were taken during the conference and the smiles that were shared.   Contact Scott to present for your next conference or convention.

Success with the Nebraska PTA team!

“Scott brings an instant enthusiasm to any conference or workshop. He works with you to define your goals and then delivers a spot on message. Our attendees enjoyed his spirit, wisdom and interactive delivery”.

When you have the opportunity to provide training for a team of people, the energy you put in to that presentation should not make a difference whether you are in front of 20, 100 or 2,000. Everyone in the audience is looking to connect and engage in the lessons/training you are providing.  I made a 1,600 mile driving journey over the last several days to the finer “tropical” destinations of St. Louis, Chicago, Kansas City, Wichita and Tulsa.

“Scott Huse brought amazing amounts of enthusiasm, positive energy and insight to our state board recently. His leadership style assessment was incredibly accurate and provided us direction on how to better work cohesively as a group. His positive attitude and energy levels were contagious and his presentation was engaging throughout. I look forward to his return to Illinois in the future!”
