Holiday Hugging! Well look what we have here…the holidays and tons of holiday hugging. When did they sneak up on us?

Getting Over Yourself to Influence this Generation

Part of the intense facilitation/speaking training that I acquired through my three years working with QLN, was a deeper understand of their core tenets.

Rejection to “this generation’s technology” is a common reaction that comes up during almost every training. The frequency has dropped over the past seven years, but it still exists. Through the rejection, comes anger and frustration that spills over to cover a plethora of topics. At this point in a training is usually when I introduce our “Reaction to Technological Change” chart to help put the anger in […]

Last week I spent two days at New Mexico State University training their student leaders and staff on the launch of Red Rover as their new campus directory. Holly Rae Bemis-Schurtz (pictured below) from the Student Success office hosted me. Beyond making me feel extremely welcomed by suggesting the best guacamole and salsa in town (Andele), Holly’s championing of Red Rover ahead of time has made for an already successful launch. Here’s to a great year working together! Hostess extraordinaire, Holly! Airplane breakfast of champions 1st round of student leaders – left side of room. 1st round of student leaders…
