On October 16, 2013 we hosted Derrick Miles as a part of our guest speaker series. Mr. Miles is CEO and President of The Milestone Brand as well as partner at, i2: Integrated Intelligence, and the author of Superhuman Performance I & II.
Mr. Miles opened by asking everyone for their name, hometown, and why they wanted to be a leader. Following introductions Mr. Miles spoke on the importance of following one's dreams. Next he discussed the corporate lie of assuming that every thing is all about the money. Encouraging attendees to pursue with their passion and not with their pockets. Then Mr. Miles spoke on the importance of finding an sponsor, a person who helps you get to the next level. Sponsors serve as mentors who help guide you along your personal and professional journey. He then challenged every attendee to one day become a sponsor to others in the future. The majority of Mr. Miles' speak revolved around 14 Gifts that he believes we should all bring to work each day. They are as follows:
