Where Was Obama?

Where was Obama the other night, Tuesday, I think it was?

He was in St Louis, and threw the traditional “first pitch”, to start the Major League All Star game.

Shouldn’t he have been at the White House?  Or meeting with important world figures.  Or working late into the night on a critical National issue?

Instead, he was at a baseball game.  A baseball game?  Seriously?  What the heck was that all about?

Here’s my theory.  What he did was critical to his role as our Nation’s Leader.

How?

It is important that we trust the President, right?

How does the White House team increase our trust in President Obama?

By design, the White House team knows that relationships are the key to trust.

By seeing President Obama as a “real person”, enjoying the same things many other Americans enjoy – Baseball, our National past time.

This makes me wonder how I could apply this to my work as a professional speaker.

Guess what, I’ve already got a few ideas.  Stay tuned.  And, um, oh yeah, carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂
