SGC Breakfast Briefing on "Personal Leadership Lessons From a 800km Walk"

With Director of JK Executive Coaching Pte Ltd, Mr Joerg Kuehn

About the Breakfast Briefing:

Personal leadership lessons from an 800km walk

It was 18th May 2012. Joerg had walked 400 km on the Camino De Santiago (Jakobsweg) in Spain ... with 400 km yet to go! His blisters grew bigger, he was exhausted and battled anxiety attacks afraid he wouldn’t be able to reach his destination. He was facing the fear of failure. During these days he learned several personal leadership lessons, which not only helped him to complete the walk, but also changed his life.

In his touching and thought-provoking talk, Joerg describes the lessons he learned (the hard way) while walking 800km and how he used them when he came back to “reality”.

You can utilize Joerg’s walking lessons to retain focus in times of crisis, be clear what you “really” need in your “daily-life-back-pack” and implement simple yet powerful personal productivity habits to stay in control of your goals and priorities.

The walk has entirely changed Joerg’s life. Learn and leverage Joerg’s personal leadership lessons without having to sweat 30km a day.
