Slide1:  4th Quarter Newsletter Las Vegas ASTD Chapter Letter from the President:  Letter from the President Dear Training and Learning Professionals,   It's difficult to imagine where 2006 ran off to.  Now we are coming into 2007 along with all the wonderful opportunities that we can imagine.  I implore you to take an hour without the Blackberry, without the email or phone, and just fantasize about what the New Year could be and then how you will ensure that it happens. What do you dislike about your position now?  Instead of stooping to that level and complaining about it, take the high road and search out for the better.  Soar instead of being a bore!  We are leaders in our organizations; act like one! Jot down 5 to 10 goals that you want to accomplish.  Put dates down by each item.  Rational ones, not just because they look good on paper.  Your goals may entail Family, traveling, taking classes at the university, or even relaxation time.  These are the goals that are important and include personal growth as well. Make 2007 a year that you will imagine your Best!  Perhaps 2007 is the year that you and your company wins the Tribute to Learning!   What a coup that would be.  Set those goals high. Eagles soar, and snails leave trails. Have a Banner Year!  We hope to see you many times this year.  We start off with Deborah Thomas-Nininger speaking to us about Reputation Management.   It continues to get better!

Providing a counterpoint to the ethical bankruptcy of contemporary business, Heart-Centered Leadership champions the message that sound ethical practices must begin from within. This kind of leadership is a personal choice, and involves the whole person: body, mind and spirit. Through the application of seven underlying principles and virtues, we describe a clear path from the moment you are inspired to be a heart-centered leader through the process of developing the healthy attitudes and responsive actions needed to convert your inspiration into reality. This focus—inward, mindful striving to “do the right thing” and become the best person you can be sets this path to leadership apart from other strategies. Today’s leaders must be able to connect with, respect and show value to associates amidst challenges like intense time pressures & limited resources. That means that heart centered leadership—characterized by care, concern, honesty and humility is not a “soft” skill but a “dollars & cents” one. Cheryl will present an overview of the seven principles of heart-centered leadership Know Thyself Don't Assume Don't Judge Come to Understand They Need What You Need Letting Go Know the Impact of Your Words and Action Biography Cheryl Tyler has spent her career, in the hospitality industry in both quick and full service restaurants as well as the hotel and gaming segments.
