Business Development Consultant Chad Prinkey kicked off Day Two by encouraging us to think about how we are going to take the best practices we’ve learned and the goals and ideas we’ve generated over the course of MDD and turn them into meaningful actions so that we are sure to make the most of this training investment.
As he put it, we spend two days learning and leave with a ton of ideas for improving ourselves, but then we get back to the branch…and work happens. The danger of falling back into old habits and routines is that all the “to-dos” we learned at MDD turn into “shoulds” that we don’t act upon because we are too busy.
Chad advised us to start the process of turning ideas into actions by making a list.
Realistically, you will not be able to retain or act on everything you’ve learned, so the goal is to take three to five things and turn them into meaningful actions. If each of the 500+ people who attended MDD can do this, that means that 1,500+ meaningful changes will result from this year’s event, which would be pretty impactful!
