If you've been around a while you probably remember that old show MacGyver. No matter what type of sticky situation he was faced with, MacGyver always found a solution. His favorite tool was his ever present Swiss Army Knife.
Well, he's no MacGyver, but pretty close. Meet our next guest speaker for the Administrator Conference, Larry Slocom. He doen't use a Swiss Army Knife to help him solve problems, he uses Conscious Discipline.
Larry is a Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor from Ohio and he will be sharing his session, "Duct Tape Leadership: The Power of Sticking Together" on June 9 as a part of our Administrator Conference. Larry has been a dynamic and energetic community and business leader for the past twenty-five years in Hamilton, OH. He was President/CEO of Wheeler Insurance Agency, Inc, Director of the Hamilton Rotary Science Fair, President of TV Hamilton Board of Directors, and was chosen as Butler County Volunteer of the Year. He is now pursuing his true passion of teaching and music by implementing Conscious Discipline in Ohio schools, YMCAs, and homes--through teaching children, composing music, staff development, and leading parent groups.
Larry is a wealth of knowledge and experience as he makes the concepts of Conscious Discipline come to life with his energy and enthusiasm! In his interactive session, "Duct Tape Leadership," Larry will help participants discover how to stick together, even when there's no duct tape around as they explore Conscious Discipline concepts to help with conflict management. Participants will be able to demonstrate their understanding of how Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose need to be the cornerstone of team building activities by designing activities that will help build staff engagement.
"Duct tape has a well-earned reputation for being the ultimate all-purpose fix-it tool. The attributes that make it the world's most reached for repair tool are also the same ones that make it the perfect prop for teambuilding games." (Tom Heck)
