Some years ago, I decided to introduce a Proteus national breakfast series into our suite of programs. As a business decision it is a total ‘loss leader’, but as an opportunity for us to connect with literally thousands of leaders and businesses, and our tribe, it has been an incredible success. Eight years later, we still fill our breakfasts in 5 states of Australia.
Well, for some years now we have been taught that networking is the only way to build our businesses and our profile however, our ability to network and communicate through a range of different platforms has now changed things, not necessarily the principle, but certainly the medium. The click of a button now gives us the information we need on any topic or subject. Social Media tribes have now replaced many of the face-to-face opportunities that we once had and that will continue to happen moving forward.
But sometimes it is just great to get together, without the expectation that the person next to us is trying to sell us something. Sometimes we just need a safe place to refill our emotional and physical tanks, without any preconceived expectations.
Now don’t get me wrong, there is a time and place for that type of networking, but there is also a time and place where we just come together to stay connected and to be inspired.
A place where we can meet for personal support, to support others with a common cause, and have the opportunity to exchange ideas. A place where we can celebrate with our teams outside of our physical workplaces.
All of us need a place of belonging, where we can feel psychologically safe.
We all need a tribe that has similar goals and objectives, but where we can also feel comfortable enough to display our differences.
So, thank you to all of our tribe, both long-term and newer members, for supporting the Proteus breakfast series nationally. We will continue to bring them to you while you continue to want them.
Our next breakfast series is in October where Richard Dore, Co-CEO of Proteus Leadership will be speaking on the topic – Right People, Right Teams, Right Outcomes.
