You Are More Powerful That You Think - Lessons from AltMBA8

  • One Roof Women 77-79 City Road Southbank, VIC, 3006 Australia (map)

You are more powerful than you think.

Welcome to the age of leverage. A moment in time when each of us has more tools, more reach and more impact than a head of state did a hundred years ago.

Each of us has the skills and insight and power to see what’s happening around us, to create new ideas, and most of all, to change the way others respond and act.

With this power, of course, comes the responsibility to actually do something with it.

At the same time that individuals have been handed the power to make an extraordinary change, a second law is working just as hard. Seth Godin

Come join Sam Haywood for a brief two-hour session, as he provides a brief primer on how to do the work that matters. During this session, he will showcase the principles and his experience from the recent AltMBA8 cohort he participated in during February 2017 (so it’s totes fresh in his mind)

What’s gonna happen?

Session (The Breakdown) -

A simple three-part approach to every situation:

6:00PM - Rock Up

6:15 - 6:45PM - See what’s going on. Learn to notice. Determine where the assets are, the limits, the worldviews.

6:45 - 7:15PM - Assert what you seek to do. Tell a story that resonates. Make your claim, “here, I made this.”

7:15PM - 8:00PM - Change the system, the rules, the people around you. All good work revolves around change. If you’re not seeking to change something, no need to go to work today. But we hope you will.

Got it, but what’s the AltMBA?

Good question - here’s a little primer -

The altMBA is an online leadership and management workshop.

Founded in 2015 by bestselling author Seth Godin, the altMBA uses digital tools like Slack, WordPress and Zoom to engage more than 100 students in an intense four-week process. In 2016, students from 27 countries worldwide participated, with more students being added each session.

The all important - FAQ’s

Why are you doing this?

A key part of it is our commitment during the AltMBA is to pass that way of thinking forward even (especially) for people who don’t have the time, resources or inclination to actually be a part of the formal program.

What do I need to bring?

Yourself, a project idea (it can be big or small) and the ability to learn.

Where does the money go?

All profits will be given to YGAP - since they are some good people doing good things.
