Charisma and Things

By May 21, 2013 No Comments

Updates from your favorite Leadership, CSR, Teambuilding company that offers Life Cycles (bike building), Helping Hands, Playhouse Challenge and so much more.
Wow, it’s been over 8 weeks since I posted a blog here. Did you miss me? I’m still unsure who reads these. Though as they say, “the gift is in the giving”. The gift is also a bit selfish on my part as the task creates a reason for me to pause and reflect on things, which is always good.
Lots of things have been going on the past 2 months in the world of Odyssey Teams. We facilitated over 26 programs all over the USA, China, Netherlands, Greece, and Czech Republic. We also designed and delivered a Helping Hands program for 4,300 people! …our largest audience at one time, so far.

We’ve also lived our lives outside of work… scaling Mt. Shasta, field trips with our children, grieving and supporting friends in need, going to concerts, going to baseball games, church, long runs, softball, volleyball, basketball, swim/bike/run, kids plays/performances/sports, playing music, nursing colds/allergies, having challenging conversations, helping with homework, reading books, splashing in creeks, laughing with family at the dinner table, and lots of other priceless moments.
These are the ‘Good ol’ Days’. Lots to be grateful for the past two months…and today. I encourage you to take stock, breathe easy & often.
Charisma is an interesting topic. Often times after programs participants will come by to thank us for an outstanding experience and also acknowledge our delivery style. I’m most touched when they are just glowing, smiling, beaming etc. and speak to how they are feeling (connected, proud, alive, happy). It reminds me of the distinction made in this quote by Robert Brault:
“Charisma is not so much getting people to like you, as getting people to like themselves when you’re around.”
The more we all can create that feeling with those around us…the even better these Good ol’ Days will be.
