iLead.iCare: Leadership Convention

This morning I attended a Leadership Convention at Grand Convention Center, Cebu with my colleagues. Personally, I learned a lot from the speakers who shared their knowledge on how to become a great leader. There were stories shared that were very inspiring, my personal favorite, John Wooden’s. He had taught his players not just about basketball but also about life.

John Wooden’s maxim:

  • Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
  • Be quick but don’t hurry
  • Flexibility is the key to stability.


Key Learnings:

Becoming a great leader is treating the person as a whole. Lead and Care. Set an example. Walk the talk. Focus on what you can control. Be honest.

— things I remember from the video shown are:

Lead by not telling them how to do it but tell them what to do and you’ll be surprised of their ingenuity.

Example is leadership.

Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of being. – John Wooden

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. -John Wooden

My personal favorite:

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what other thinks you are. -John Wooden

Tell me what you think!
