George Broostin posed with me at the Good Leadership Training graduation ceremonies. What a handsome guy!
The theme for my summer blogs this year is growth: I love watching people grow. At Good Leadership Enterprises our business is to accelerate growth in good leaders. Over the next ten weeks you will meet people who are radiating goodness every day.
Today’s spotlight is on George Broostin, Director of Development at Guild Incorporated, and recent graduate of Good Leadership Training.
I consider George a friend, because he is exceptionally thoughtful – and we sing together in the Rotary Rooters glee club every Wednesday morning.
George has been a senior leader for many years and has heard volumes of management advice…so he was surprised and delighted when Good Leadership Training not only connected him with other good leaders, but also gave him meaningful motivation to improve personally and professionally.
One of the skills George wanted to develop was listening. “It’s easy for me to talk too much, so in Training I intentionally stepped back.” Throughout Good Leadership Training, he challenged himself to ask more insightful questions and let a conversation unfold; rather than drive it. “I knew I would learn more by listening and soaking it in.”
