Hot Shot’s Secret Shares Takeaways from SEMA Training

Josh Steinmetz shares insights from the SEMA Future Leaders Network professional development training event.

Hot Shot’s Secret Brand Manager, Josh Steinmetz, shares top five takeaways from SEMA Future Leaders Network (FLN) professional development training, May 11-12 at the SEMA Detroit Garage in Plymouth, MI.

Steinmetz recently completed a two-day, in-person program focused on improving individual and business performance sponsored by SEMA’s Future Leader’s Network. The Future Leader’s Network, formerly called Young Executives Network (YEN), provides aspiring professionals aged 39 and under with the opportunity to network with industry professional to build a higher level of professionalism in all facets of business – marketing, sales, operations, and technology, according to FLN.

This training opportunity was offered at half the normal cost to select FLN members. This is the second year that FLN has offered a professional development program.

Steinmetz attended the training for the first time and shared his top five takeaways from the specially designed Dale Carnegie program: 

  1. Effective communication is important; it provides clarity to all parties involved. 
  2. Building self-confidence and maintaining a positive attitude are vital components of the Dale Carnegie program. We must step out of our comfort zones, face challenges, and overcome self-doubt.
  3. Strong interpersonal skills help to establish rapport, show a genuine interest in others, and will build relationships based on trust and respect.
  4. Learn how to inspire and motivate others by delegating tasks and providing constructive feedback. This develops strong relationships with team members and creates a positive work environment that fosters collaboration and productivity.
  5. Have a positive mindset! Your perceived mindset can lead you in the wrong direction. Opening your mind to an optimistic viewpoint will open doors of opportunity.
