On November 10th, 2022, Chantal Machabée, former sports journalist and current V-P Communications for the Montreal Canadiens hockey team, was a guest speaker at the C.R.O.I.R.E event in La Prairie, Quebec.
The organization's mission is to help people of all ages and backgrounds develop the skills and confidence needed to take on leadership roles in their communities and beyond. In her talk, Machabee shared her own journey to leadership and offered participants practical advice on how they could develop their own leadership skills. Developing one's leadership skills, she explained, can have a profound impact not just on one's own life but on the lives of those around them as well—and by extension, on the world.
Machabee also stressed the importance of self-awareness, communication skills, emotional intelligence, problem-solving skills, and time management skills—all of which are essential for any leader worth their salt.
Chantal Machabee's talk was an inspiring reminder of the power of leadership—not just for those who aspire to take on formal leadership roles but for everyone who wants to make a positive difference in their community and beyond!
