Welcome to the December 2004 edition of Key Inspirations Internet Learning Service with Kevin Asbjornson, MIM, executive educator, keynote inspirational speaker and international recording artist. Thank you for subscribing!
Key Inspiration for the Day: To make a point with impact, don't tell. Show! A recent article in US News & World Report described a variety of experience based leadership development programs that use the arts as the media for enlightenment. The article quotes J. Richard Hackman, professor of social and organizational psychology at Harvard University, as saying, "The showing, not telling, is pretty powerful." Kevin Asbjornson, MIM, achieves the same impact in his executive education experience, Artistry of Leadership - Creating Meaningful Connections®, by modeling the principles of inspired leadership rather than merely lecturing about them. As a result, Kevin's clients understand his message with clarity and profundity uncommon in executive education today.
