Rosanne Longmore, CEO of Coroflo, gave us a brilliant Leader Lab yesterday evening. She talked about "The Power of Attitude" and highlighted key points in improving your attitude to the challenges and difficulties that we face daily. Among a number of tips that were given during her Leader Lab, she focused particular attention on body language. Even if you don't feel confident or happy, you can change your attitude by changing your body language: smiling more, changing your posture. She recommended a TED talk given by Amy Cuddy (see below). Another point she highlighted is that in each step in your journey through life and especially thinking of your professional development, you start from the bottom. But to not think of this as a negative but as a positive element of professional development and growth. In the same way we start from the bottom to climb a mountain, we also start from the bottom in each step along the way: we begin secondary school, we're small 1st year students; we begin college, we're the youngest on campus; we begin in the workplace, we're the new ones on the block. To see all these stages as moments of growth and opportunity.
