TED began in 1984 with a conference. The annual conference still continues, and I daresay that its web site has grown exponentially in popularity.
So, on TED, you’ll watch famous people as well as people you’ve never heard of on all kinds of topics.
So what I love about this particular talk is how Gilbert recounts poet Ruth Stone’s description of creative inspiration. It’s as if, she says, a “thunderous train of air” is blowing through the landscape, and you can see it and feel it. And if you don’t catch it (write it down) while it’s in your backyard, it’s going to blow away to the next artist, writer, poet.
Sales coaching with Lee was such an enlightening experience! She has such a way of putting people at ease and setting them up for success. The entire team in my store is committed to developing the skills which we had been taught from the beginning. Lee's visit really brought the concepts of "Customer Friendly Buying" to life, so that each of us would take away from it just what we needed to. As a result of Lee's coaching, I am committed to the coaching of the consultants in order to continue to reinforce the principles taught and coached. Lee truly met each person on my team at their level and challenged them to stretch and move out of their comfort zone...I already can see them developing some good habits, especially in the icebreaking, conversational, and staying connected phases. Lee is truly an inspiration.
