At the recent FPA Fall Executive Conference, Social Entrepreneur and Author, Matt Tenney, discussed “Serve to Be Great: Leadership Lessons from a Prison, a Monastery, and a Boardroom.” Matt is an international keynote speaker, trainer, and a consultant with the prestigious Perth Leadership Institute, whose clients include numerous Fortune 500 companies. He works with companies, associations, universities, and non-profits to develop highly effective leadership skills, and achieve lasting success by focusing on serving and inspiring greatness in the people around them.
Matt believes that as humans, we are wired to see what’s wrong in life, and not what’s right. We need to train ourselves to see what is right, no matter the circumstance, and act quickly and efficiently as possible. It can be something as simple as saying “thank you” to an employee for a job well done, and showing appreciation for their work.
