LIFE Leadership Conventions

Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 5, 2013

It’s a beautiful Saturday morning and I just finished watching a superb video on the impact of the LIFE Business Leadership Conventions. Rob Hallstrand and his LIFE staff are knocking the ball out of the park on the recent videos. Indeed, the LIFE Convention video captures how a person can change from the inside out. In fact, it’s the only way true lasting change occurs. When a person thinks differently, he begins to act differently, thus producing different results in his life. Twenty years ago, I made one of the best decisions of my life by starting a personal growth journey.  Just like everyone else, I changed my internal thinking which led to external changes. For twenty consecutive years, I have read 10-15 books per month. But, I didn’t just read them, I applied them within the leadership communities. Over time, this reading and daily application led to amazing changes in who I am and what I see for the future. The same opportunity to start your journey is available at the LIFE Business Conventions around North America later this month. 2013 is the year to launch your LeaderShift! Here is the new video.

    Ditto the amazing TEAM Office. I help with tools for the monthly in Wichita. Noticed the Apprenticeship Packs needed the new CD by Wayne MacNamara. Emailed them Monday with an odd-lot request. Tuesday was “New Year’s Day”! Whoa-la. The audios show up the same week on Friday.

  10. Tina Abernathy said

    Excellent video Orrin! The Team office has done it again. I can truly say it was my first Leadership Convention that allowed this movement to flow from my head to my heart. And just like the heart organ, The Leadership Conventions are essential to LIFE!

    1 Million and Beyond!

    The very first leadership convention changed my life for the good forever. I need this association event to continue to move forward in all eight areas of life. The learning from just one event is priceless over a life time.

  17. Ann Greene said

    Leadership Conventions are the difference! You cannot duplicate them outside that environment, the love, the loyalty, the commitment, the struggle and the learning are ALL part of the experience.

    Great video Orrin,

    Each month I am in the LIFE business, something gets better. The PDCA plan of Plan, Do, Check, Adjust and the fundamental servant mentality of the LIFE founders are the reasons we are going mainstream. We will change the world!!!

  26. Mike Samuelson said

    Wow, Can’t wait until winter leadership 2013. This video is simply amazing, what a way to get the new people to get a small taste of winter leadership weekend. I for one can’t even begin to explain how The Life Business and its association has changed our family for best.

    Thank you PC

      I am particularly impressed with the music because it was my son Jordan who produced it specifically for this video. 🙂

        Kudos to Jordan! He did a great job. He has grown up in a household with such wonderful role models. Enjoy his success! I know we parents have a special sense of pride when we see our children succeed. And hearing good things about your children never gets tiring. Congrats Orrin and Laurie!!

    God bless

  50. Richard Kroll Jr. said

    Great video Orrin! I will never forget my first Leadership Convention. I saw the business “plan” on Wednesday, just two days before, and was totally SKEPTICAL… but thought I would go to this “seminar” to see if there was ANY truth to what I was just shown. I went and saw recognition and heard YOU speak… I ran down at the intermission to find the person who had sold me the ticket and “signed up” on the spot. I am eternally grateful!! LIFE Leadership Conventions truly are life changing!!!

  51. Tim Dwyer said

  55. Sheri Lucas said

  56. Mary Hermsen said

    What a great lead-in to the video! This is a terrific tool for all of us. Thank you Orrin and all involved.


  57. Elizabeth Sieracki said

    I am a visual learner. That video touches the heart. I have resent it out to all my teammates as an added promo to Louisville.
    We all know the common question we get about Leadership Conventions “why do I need to go?” That video does the best job EVER of explaining that.
    Thank you Rob and office staff. Once again, you’ve helped make our business not only easier, but better.

  58. Renee Oettinger said

    This is a great promotional tool for the leadership convention.

  59. Kim Decker said
