This post was written by NSA-Michigan President Sherene McHenry. Sherene works with organizations who want to boost their leadership IQ so they can enhance effectiveness, increase employee engagement and raise productivity.
As much as I hate to admit it, when I first joined NSA Michigan, I was pretty lackadaisical about attending the bi-monthly workshops. What can I say? I didn’t know what I didn’t know, and driving almost 2 ½ hours each way made for a lengthy day.
It wasn’t long, however, before I began to see the value of attending every seminar. Even when I’d think, “I don’t need this topic,” I’d walk away with multiple gold nuggets that empowered me to be a better speaker and improve my bottom line. There is no way I would have ever been able to leave my W2 to speak full time without the knowledge I learned in those workshops.
Every summer I purchase my annual subscription to NSA Michigan’s seminars for two reasons:
- There is nowhere else I’d rather be on the 2nd Saturday of every odd month. I look forward to learning new information I can immediately put to use, and to seeing my speaker friends who intimately understand my world.
- I’m a bargain shopper and the subscription gives me a free seminar. Who’d pass up such a deal?
For me it truly is a no-brainer. What about you? Is it time you gave your speaking career the professional development it so richly deserves?
