Phase One Complete

This year at school, I'm working on my leadership skills and style.  I try to do a good job of leading and facilitating, and then I write about what went well and what I think could have gone better.

October was my month to facilitate team meetings.  Today's the last one, thank the lord.  One problem I'm having is that my face betrays my every emotion, including aversion and incredulity.  It's not so wonderful to display these reactions when facilitating a meeting, I've learned.  Maybe what I need is pump-up music.  Perhaps a playlist including "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga.  I think it might do the trick.

I ran into this situation a few times while coaching. Was never able to
get that deadpan look down effectively. Good thing or bad thing? I'm not sure.
Congrats on always having cool goals. And on working on them. I admire this.

I have the same problem with looks of aversion and incredulity, but unfortunately my mouth also engages. "Poker Face" seems like a good choice.
