I love sitting around the fire pit and talking with you about leadership skills and leadership actions that I learned in the trust depleted places around the world, that work even better in your world. Sharing the skills of leadership, Rooftop Leadership, from life and death so that you can use them in life and business. Let’s take a moment to talk about the “soft skills”. I call them the “Lawrencian” skills.
The same skills that T. E. Lawrence used to mobilize the Badu tribesmen to overthrow the city of Aqaba and the Ottoman Turks in World War I. This week we’re talking about hospitality, but more specifically we’re going into “Giftology”.
John Ruhlin wrote this book called Giftology, and he coined the term, but he didn’t coin the process. I will tell you that Special Forces, all the way back to T.E. Lawrence, have been using a form of Giftology, which is the giving of gifts to make connections and build relationships in high stakes moments, for decades, if not centuries.
Let’s sit around the fire pit and break down the concept of, Giftology.
I’ll see you on the Rooftop…
