YLConvention 2014

This was my very first Young Living Convention.  I am so thankful for the opportunity to go and see first hand how wonderful our company is and how serious they are about Young Living standards.  Convention was in Salt Lake City, Utah this year.  We stayed at The Hilton which is right across the street from the convention at the Salt Palace.

Monday, Day 1

When we first arrived we went to a leadership session with several great speakers.

First, Darren Hardy is the publisher and founding director of SUCCESS magazine. Hardy is a businessman, author, private equity investor, keynote speaker, corporate advisor, and a mentor to CEOs and entrepreneurs.  He  spoke on 21st Century Leadership.

A few of my favorite take aways:

Lead by example – behavior never lies

Leaders set the pace – people don’t go as fast as they can, they go as fast as they are being led

How do you get people to do what you want?  Ask yourself 2 questions: What do you want?  (list 12 top attributes you want)  Do I demonstrate these attributes?

Everybody recruits: military, colleges, sports, charities, religious, corporations

The best businesses have the best people.  Great people aren’t trained, they are found

Sell You! You are the living spokesperson for Young Living.  They are going to buy it if you believe it and exemplify it.   You can’t convince someone of something you don’t believe yourself.

Change SELL to HELP!  Help people better themselves, focus on how you can help them instead of what they can do for you.

Monkey See Monkey Do – You are always training someone

Then Connie Podesto, Award-Winning Author, Comedian, and Expert in the Psychology of Human Relations.  She was funny and identified our personalities and taught me I was a triangle.

Last but not least was our founder, Gary Young.  He is so passionate about what he does, it is contagious!  He encouraged us all to Dream Big, Live our Dream and don’t let people squash our dreams!

Some more take aways:

We are created to do great things!

If you are not self-evaluating yourself, somebody else will.

I can’t = I won’t

After leadership session, they had a Welcome Party with tons of food, desserts and a Ningxa bar.  We met up with some of our team here.

Tuesday night we attended a fancy Gala.  It was fun to get all dressed up.  They had bottles of Ningxa Red on our tables.

On Friday we visited the Headquarters, Warehouse and the Farm.  All week we loved how sweet and wonderful all of the Young Living employees were.  They truly love their jobs and the company.

What a fun week!  There is so much more, but this is all for this post.
