Lead2Feed Lesson 4: Be a Bold Ad for Your Big Goal

It's time for part 4 of the leadership lessons from the Lead2Feed project challenge—designed to help young leaders build leadership, teamwork and collaborative service skills. The Lead2Feed lessons are a part of the Ambassador Leadership Summit experience.

In our last lesson, Lesson 3, we learned an insight driven approach to leading people and achieving goals.

In Lesson 4, we will learn how to MARKET THE CHANGE: BE A BOLD AD FOR YOUR BIG GOAL.

Through this lesson, you will:

  • Personalize your vision and practice delivering an “elevator speech” to communicate your vision to others. 
  • Explore credible media to learn how to catch the attention of your target audience.
  • Create, launch and refine an ad to advocate for your Big Goal.

Effective leaders know how to get people on board. They are able to share their vision with anyone at any time, in a very personal and compelling way. This lesson teaches you to communicate your vision and your Big Goal in a concise, effective manner.

In the book Taking People With YouDavid Novak shares that in the midst of all the media consumption you only have a small window of time to grab someone's attention. In fact, that window is only 6.5 seconds! So you have to really think about your initiative and find a great creative hook to inspire people to get in the game. Hear more how to make it happen.
