Empowered? You Bet!
How do you measure the results of being part of a ConnectUs Empowerment Team? I wasn’t sure until I sat around the table with the first graduates.
This group met through an invitation from Smart Betty. The owner, Lisa Rots agreed to promote the event through her newly established company. The results were that 10 people that didn’t know each other; spent a day together. The purpose was to set goals and establish an action plan. Each person had to agree to do what they could to encourage and help each other. I was the facilitator. It was agreed that the team would reconnect after 60 days to report in their success. We even created an Empowerment Team Facebook Group.
We met on Saturday, February 25th again at Stone Edge Estate. 8 team members came prepared to share the results of their goal setting. The results were amazing!
While I could write an entire article on the team and their stories, I encourage you to connect with each member of the Empowerment Team and learn from them directly.
