I saw the add for a workshop about leadership and working with people. It was free and by a guy I had seen before and thought was really good, so I signed up. I deal with a lot of people at work and I'm interested in how people function and saw a great opportunity to learn something.
And I did.
But instead of a room full of people as expected it was me and 8 others in the room. Including the speaker!
8 other man.
8 other swedes.
8 other big bosses.
Talk about standing out! The workshop turned out to be quite interesting and helpful, especially after that first uncomfortable half hour. We learned some things, discussed situations and I met people that wouldn't have otherwise. Another plus is that I have a funny story to tell. After telling my boss he asked me, joking, if I was secretly planning to take over his job!
I'm not. That was just doing the Sara way, as usual.
