"If you work for a man, in heaven's name work for him! If he pays you wages that supply you your bread and butter, work for him-speak well of him, think well of him, stand by him and stand by the institution he represents.

I think if I worked for a man I would work for him. I would not work for him a part of the time, and the rest of the time work against him. I would give an undivided service or none.

If put to the pinch, an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness.“   --  Elbert Hubbard

      • How does your effort feed into earned value, cost, schedule?

    • Own Your Stuff

      • What happens when you get stuck?

      • How do you deal with team ownership?

      • What do you do when overwhelmed?

      • How do you convince other overwhelmed people to assist you?

        If you say you will do it, then do it.

Session 1

  • Relationship Example

Session 1

  • Working with people – most challenging and rewarding

    • Communication

Session 1

  • LDP Myths and Truths

    • Ques 1 – Is relocation a requirement of LDP?

    • Ques 2 – Can I get the same benefits without being in LDP? (Career Growth, Training, Opportunities)

    • Ques 3 – I’ve heard that managers don’t like LDP’ers. They get trained then leave. They only work tasks that they get awards for.

      Bottom line, if you want the real scoop, talk to an LDPer.

Leadership should be born out of the understanding of the needs of those who would be affected by it.

~Marian Anderson
