So You’re Going To A Seminar…Open Your Mind!

Open Your MindSeminars are one of the most convenient outlets to expand our knowledge, network with other professionals and learn new skills. I, myself, am not only a professional speaker but a seminar junky! Have you ever noticed how many adults attend a motivational seminar with a closed mind and full of complaints?

It is as though they already have a pre-determined way of doing things and are just looking for a place to qualify it. They see other people as the ones who need to be “fixed,” and only want to learn how to get somebody else to “change” their behavior.

Seminars are open forums of communication. They offer a great opportunity to try on new viewpoints and get a positive mindset on personal and professional growth. When you are at an event, you do yourself a disservice by not joining in with the games or exercises and throwing away your notes at the end of the day.

Find out how you can get the most of the event by talking to the trainer before, during, and after the seminar. Trainers are more than happy to share their knowledge and do some life coaching to assist you in reaching your goals. Raise your hand in the seminar, ask questions, and be willing to talk to fellow attendees about current issues. They may have a new approach that you’ve never heard of before!

I have always reminded myself that even if I attend a training and I know most of the information that is delivered, if I can walk out of there and take with me at least 1 or 2 new strategies for success it was well worth it.

So, the next time you attend a seminar please remember to come with a smile on your face, an open mind with a pen and paper to write on. You might hear one tidbit of information that just may change your life…
