(Seguin) -- In order to be inspired, sometimes it takes having to hear from others who have also been in your shoes and who have since gone on to inspire individuals, families and even the operation of their businesses.
Sign-up is still available for Friday's worldwide leadership simulcast event, Live2Lead. The simulcast is being hosted by the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce & Realizing Your Dreams, a local leadership development business
designed to strengthen professional skills and personal growth.
Larry "Bear" Watts, who owns Realizing Your Dreams with his wife Dawn, says Live2Lead is a world class leadership experience packed into a half-day format full of "rich content, key takeaways and easy-to-implement action plans."
"The primary benefit, both for the business community, but more importantly, just for the average citizen here in Seguin is that the L2L is a chance for you to come out and it's going to deliver a leadership content to inspire and motivate,
both the individuals and their teams that go through there. It's going to give a chance for people to come out and connect with some of our major community involvement at this particular time. It will also let you expand the business network with relationships that produce tangible results," said Bear Watts.
Dawn Watts says the panel of speakers are encouraging and inspiring -- each one having a different journey.
"(Leadership expert) John Maxwell will be talking about his book that he just wrote, 'Blow the Cap Off of Your Capacity.' So growing your capacity and learning how to identify and debrief some of the key core capacities to help you to become a more successful and more fulfilled in your life. Cheryl Bachelder talks about her book that she put out to learn the qualities and attributes of a strong effective leadership. So with her leadership abilities, she not only changed the face in the culture of Popeye's Fried Chicken (Louisiana Kitchen), but she brought them together and created team leadership and team building and has made Popeyes' very successful again. Then Warrick Dunn, of course, has made such a difference in people's lives. His mother was killed, who was a police officer -- leaving six children and Warrick Dunn was the oldest. He was a senior in high school. So he was left with raising his brothers and sisters and through his experiences and hardships and dealing with depression, he is now -- help with the single families, getting into homes -- he's honoring his mother of owning a home that she never got to see," said Dawn Watts.
Also scheduled to speak will be Dave Ramsey, personal money management expert and best-selling author. Described as America's trusted voice on money and business, Ramsey is known for his national radio show and Financial Peace seminars -- many of which are hosted here in Seguin. Dawn Watts says the event also helps connect individuals with others in their community.
"It's for everyone who just wants to be inspired and encouraged. One of the things that I love that John Maxwell says is that we all lead at least one person and that's ourselves. If we can grow in an area of leadership, than we can add value to people around us. That's the whole essence of this. Each one of these speakers is a servant leader and talks about how we can add value to the people around us and to grow and build our communities and our relationships with not only people in our community, but in our relationships in delivering a positive attitudes and servant leadership meaning you help the people around you to grow and develop," said Dawn Watts.
