As holiday season approaches, I have been thinking about all people and things that I am grateful for. I have also been thinking how I can give back to the community. As many of you know, my passion lies in empowering people through technology, training, leadership, and mindfulness.
2 weeks ago as I was talking to my dear friend, Noelle LaCharite who is an Alexa Developer and blogger, the idea of creating a “Leadership Affirmations” skill came up. I thought it would be a great way to blend in technology, training, leadership, and mindfulness and give back to the community. It would also require me to learn how to create Alexa skills – core to what I ask my audience to do in my #Amazon Best Seller, “Fast-Track Your Leadership Career” – continue to invest in yourself and learn new skills. Noelle was kind enough to walk me through the basics of how to create an Alexa skill and off I went on the weekend long mission to create the skill and make it available on Alexa store for free for anyone who wanted to use it.
Note that you do not need an Alexa device to invoke and use this Alexa skill. To set up your phone or tablet to play this affirmation:
- Download “Amazon Alexa” app from the App Store of your device.
- Log in using your Amazon account. Don’t worry if you don’t have a prime account.
- You are all set …hold down the Alexa icon and say “Alexa, open Leadership Affirmations” to listen to your affirmation.
