Every Monday my office starts off by having our weekly staff meetings. My CEO, one of the sweetest persons ever, sits at the head of the table while the rest of us file in and fill our usual spot at the long conference table.
Call me crazy, but I love Monday morning meetings. They take me back to when I was President of my Sorority, Gamma Phi Beta.
My CEO sits at the end of the table, flows through the agenda, and goes through the rest of the week’s business while the rest of us report back on specific matters.
As I see my CEO run the meeting I often times go back to my President days and how I would have handled the situation at hand while other times I just sit and smile inside because it brings back dear memories.
Being President was one of the greatest challenges I had ever allowed myself to take on, yet one of the most rewarding. I took so much from the experience.
In my office, I look like a million bucks. I know parliamentary procedure, I know how to organize-and keep stuff organized, I know how to run a meeting, I can balance multiple projects at once, I know how to dress in formal attire and have a presence, I have great PR..the list goes on.
People often times think being a sorority girl is a bad thing when, in fact, it can be a good thing. I don’t know how many times I have been able to take the skills I have learned through being a leader in my sorority in the many day to day occurrences I come across.
While I am extremely glad to be an alumni and have a completely different love for my Sorority now, every once in a while I reminisce on my glory days.
Here’s a picture of my Executive Council and I at our Regional Leadership Conference at our USC Chapter House. I sure did feel like I conquered with these girls.. in IIKE <3
Conquering the world.
