Reflections on a Remarkable Event

Last week I attended an amazing learning event in Chicago.  It was called the Author Pow Wow sponsored by 800-CEO-Read.  You can read more of my experiences here.

But you can learn more than just from me – here are links to other people’s reflections and lessons learned:

. . . from Erika Anderson

 . . . an idea spawned from the event by Ben McConnell

 . . . from David Meerman Scott

. . . words and a picture (of course) from Dan Roam

 . . . creative writing from Rajesh Setty

. . .  and more from Rajesh

 . . . from Mike Kanazawa

 . . . from Barabra Cave Hendricks

 These are all that have been posted at the time of this post.  If you find more, please comment!

Why do I share all of this with you?

What is the lesson for us as Remarkable Leaders?

Reflection.  In order to gain the most learning from an experience we must reflect on it.  I have haven’t really shared all of my lessons and action steps on either of these posts – not all of those things are relevant to this forum – but rest assured that I have captured many ideas, connections and actions that I will take as a result of this event. 

 The other lesson comes from the reflections of others.  We can also learn from the lessons of others.  When we, as leaders, create a space, opportunity, and expectation of sharing learning across our teams, we are moving that much closer towards Remarkable.
