A few of our leaders got a special treat on Halloween and represented Team TAG at the annual Get Motivated Seminar. Our group of 9 joined 17,000 others at Staples Center in Downtown LA to listen to famous speakers such as Rudy Giuliani, Joe Montana, Lou Holtz, Laura Bush, Krishna Dhanam, and Bill Cosby.
The Get Motivated Seminar is one of the largest and long lasting business seminars in North America. The purpose of the seminar is not only to motivate and educate, but to challenge and inspire action amongst the audience.
One of the most memorable speakers included Krish Dhanam, a top sales training expert who was personally mentored by Zig Ziglar. His charisma captivated the audience and had all our leaders writing down his mantra:
“Plan with attitude, prepare with aptitude, participate with servitude, receive with gratitude, and this should be enough to separate you from the multitudes.”
“I really enjoyed hearing what Colin Powell and Krish Dhanam were talking about; Krish focusing on selflessness. They really honed in on the little qualities that differentiate a person who wants people to lead and a person who wanted people to be successful with them.” – Donielle Kalachi
Another anticipated speaker was Lou Holtz, the only college football coach to lead six different programs to bowl games. Holtz shared with the audience the things he believes and practices which included having a passion and focusing on your purpose. Intertwined in his speech were humorous anecdotes about his coaching experiences and personal life.
“I appreciated Lou Holtz speech because it was applicable to being a leader in any kind of situation. Whether someone was leading a team in sports, military, government, or business, it is important to have solid values, a great attitude, and a goal to strive for.” – Manilynn Disuanco
In addition to listening to the motivational speakers our team got the chance to network with other professionals, received workbooks filled with valuable information to share with the rest of the office, and participated in raffles and contests.
The task at hand now is to transfer the knowledge and motivation to the rest of the office.
“Coming to this event was truly an amazing opportunity to hear from the fearless leaders of our country. No matter what arena each leader associated with, each shared great nuggets of wisdom that can transcend to all aspects of life. Specifically I enjoyed how each speaker emphasized similar attributes of success: working hard, a great attitude, embrace change, and the importance of spiritual success.” – Ellesse Wong
We can’t wait to see what kind of motivation these leaders bring to our team!
