Speaker Entrepreneur and coaching expert Ty Dye will share his experience Feb. 25 at meeting
When lifelong entrepreneur Ty Dye yes that is his real name took a look back at a career that spanned several industries, from auto parts to real estate, he found a common thread.
What I recognized was the reason I had success in all those businesses is really my ability to develop teams, Dye said. The gifts God has given me in identifying peoples strengths and bringing the best out of them is what has brought all of my success in all of my careers. So I said, This is what I need to be doing full-time, coaching and developing people.
A longtime fan of author and salesmanship expert David Maxwell, Dye learned that Maxwell had a coaching program and quickly signed up.
Since then he has started his own coaching firm, Unlock Limits Coaching Groups, and was recently part of a 150-person Maxwell coaching team that trained 19,000 local leaders from all walks of life in Guatemala.
His experience in Guatemala will be one of the topics Dye covers Feb. 25, when he will present Equipping 101: What Every Leader Needs to Know to the Christian Chamber of Commerce of the Northwests monthly meeting at the Villa Academic Center.
To equip is to guide or develop someone, so its the exact same definition to disciple someone, Dye said. From a biblical standpoint, leadership is a commandment and were commanded to guide and develop others.
Dye will specifically cover how to use vision casting and team-building to develop leaders. He also challenges the notion of the self-made man, which seems to ignore teamwork and development.
In Guatemala, Dye and the other Maxwell coaches spread out throughout the countries to teach small group, but the program went beyond just covering the how-tos of leadership.
We trained them on a curriculum, but if you really want change, one of the key things in change is values, so we trained on leadership values, Dye said.
Dye will also share how those values stood up despite crossing over language and cultural boundaries.
