In order to sharpen my skills, leadership abilities, and over all effectiveness here at FTI, I periodically engage in refresher courses of various subject to increase my worth and value as an Executive Director. I am currently engaged in a 2 day seminar entitled, "Racing for Mediocrity: the Quest for Survival in a Cruel World", and subtitled, "How to Make the Most with the Idiots That Surround You".
If I do say so myself, I seem to be a leader in the class at this time. I have repeatedly had the right answers, relayed the most helpful experiences, and throughly impressed the facilitator of the course. After yesterday's first session, he pulled me aside to congratulate me and compliment me on how impressed he was with my participation. We started talking about my actual experience and background. After explaining my circumstances and describing how the Misfits think and act, I have been granted a waiver of the enrollment fee and have actually been asked to conduct a seminar on his behalf in the future. The reason for asking me to do so? I obviously have greater expertise in this area than the moderator when attempting to "Making the Most with the Idiots That Surround You. "
