I’m here in Minneapolis to do a pro bono retreat for a statewide non-profit, in support of a friend who is the board chair. Even in retirement, I do things like this now and again. There are parts of the current work world, like marketing through social media, that I really know nothing about. I also think workplaces now move faster, and are more complex, than anything Jerry and I had to deal with building our business. But my board retreat skills, leadership development insights, and instincts for the right strategic move remain on target and useful.
The weather when I landed was in the mid-20’s with light snow — something I hardly deal with any more in Seattle. Happily I kept my warm winter coat when I moved from Rochester.
I’ll be back in Seattle for one day, and then off to Panama for a week — a temperature swing of 60 degrees. Snow here, rain there.
Oddly enough, Seattle’s the place with sun. 🙂
