Becoming a leader was never meant to be a walk in the park. To gain even an inch or two of growth seems to require elbow grease, if not getting the hands downright dirty.
It was one of the first lessons 24 Los Alamos residents, with me included, learned during a two-day Leadership Los Alamos orientation, which was held Friday and Saturday at the Homewood Suites in Pojoaque.
This year’s Leadership Los Alamos will hold seven monthly classes. A graduation will be held on May 7.
To begin this process, some background information on the participants was gathered. On Friday night, we interviewed each other – who has ridden in a hot air balloon? What time of year is preferable? What were some reasons for participating in Leadership Los Alamos?
Saturday, we dug a little deeper. The retreat facilitator Phil Bryson of On the Edge Productions, kicked the day off with a quiz.
The quiz determined what social styles each individual in the group possessed – whether it was driver, expressive, amiable, analytical or any combination of these styles. The key to the quiz was not only to identify your own style but to recognize what other styles people may possess. Therefore, you will be better equipped to work successfully with anyone.
