Future Business Leaders of America

I recently had the opportunity to attend the Washington State Future Business Leaders of America (WAFBLA) annual conference held in Spokane. The mission of WAFBLA is to educate and network next generation entrepreneurs and business leaders in Washington State. WAFBLA builds programs that focus on teaching 21st Century leadership skills for youth in middle schools, high schools, and colleges.

With over 2,000 young people in attendance from every part of Washington State, it was incredible to see their individual and collective energy and enthusiasm for leadership and entrepreneurship. One of the highlights for me was attending the keynote presentations throughout the three day conference. One presentation in particular delivered by Roger Woodworth, Avista’s Chief Strategy Officer, had a huge impact on the entire audience. Roger shared six guidelines that help to determine the impact each of us will make in our life as leaders.

I would encourage you to watch this presentation, as it will challenge your thinking about your goals, choices, commitments, relationships, priorities, and your legacy of leadership.
