As Iron Sharpens Iron

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17 (NIV)

This is the verse I think of when I consider my time at the SCORRE 2012 conference.

Ken Davis holds nothing back in this training week. He gives us the tools we need to become successful communicators.

There’s another key to the SCORRE conference…

It’s one thing to have the tools you need in your tool belt, it’s another thing to actually get them out and learn how to use them.

Each day of the conference gives the attendees the opportunity to use each tool we’ve been given. This is the part I found INVALUABLE!!!

It’s putting reality to skills. Anyone can tell you how to do something, but a true leader takes the time to show you.

I left SCORRE with a confidence I never knew was possible. I’ve begun seeking out more speaking engagements because I’m confident in my new found skills of communicating truths effectively to others.

What are you waiting for? Sign up for the next SCORRE conference!

Thank you to my personal mentoring group, and to the staff of the SCORRE conference for changing my ability to communicate in an immeasurable way.
