1. Taniesha Rogers Girls BB Coach Cysprings HS Last week Mr. Cedrick LaFleur came and did leadership training with my team and I personally LOVED it. The girls opened up and shared personal stories about their past that I didn't even know. Some of the things they took away from this leadership lesson was 1. Effective communication 2. Make & Keep Goals 3. Go the extra mile These are things we as coaches repeatedly tell our athletes however sometimes it takes a professional like Mr. LaFleur to get the message through. The week after the training the girls shocked me. I was amazed at how quickly they applied the lessons they learned to the court. #HonestMoment at first I wasnt exactly excited about this season BUT now. I am!! Even more excited that the girls came up with something they wanted to implement in their team huddle "He who kneels before God can stand before anyone". I can't say "Be 212" because that's another schools motto but I will say this group of girls will go the extra mile! Thank You Cedrick for the new outlook on this season you have given myself and this team! I truly appreciate it! 2. LaGrange HS Leader Team Teacher I actually said “building our bench” for the first time Thursday. PLCs were difference because of our Wednesday meeting with you. It made a difference. I appreaciate our meetings more the longer I think about them. Thank you for adding a new dimension to our thoughts. 3. D. Young (financial coaching client) Thank you soooo much this was the most encouraging call I’ve had in such a long time!!! I can see progress. I got off the phone with you and immediated called my insurance company to see when my rate will decrease. Thank you for assisting me and taking the first step. So appreciative for everything you do and can’t wait to see the next part o my life and I’m calling you scheduling sessions on investing. 4. S. Walker Mr Cedrick LaFleur I can’t say than you enough. You have created a BUZZ. I love it. They are thinking better, setting goals and winning. 5. S. Buller Thank you so much for working with the LaGrange HS Link crew. Your ability to reach students and enhance their leadership abilities is undeniable. Today’s workshop was life changing and I can’t wait to see the positive changes that will come from this. John Maxwell says, “A leaders is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” Thank you again for being an example of leadership and showing the way.
