I think my background in education, research, and consulting brings a unique set of skills and knowledge that can be transferable across industries and projects.
I love seeing both organizations and the people who work there, see the results of their hard work and dedication, and thrive.
My Blue Beyond is being in a place in my career and personal life where I know I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. When things feel like they’ve come full circle, and each experience I’ve had before is connected to and has led me to where I’m at. My Blue Beyond is spending time with the people, in the places, doing the things that make me feel fulfilled, seen, and at peace.
I love the fall. I love the changing color of the leaves in the midwest and how it signals winter approaching. I love closing down the garden for the year, and harvesting everything we’ve grown. Fall feels like the closing of a year, which means there’s a new beginning right around the corner.
I think an effective team is one that communicates clearly and effectively with one another, supports one another through feedback and encouragement, is committed to a common goal, sets high expectations, and leverages the best of each team member to exceed those expectations.
My wife and I have actually talked a lot about this. Right now, we would rent an RV, bring all three of our dogs, and drive the entire west coast, exploring small towns, finding our favorite coffee shop and bakery in each, taking our time with no pre-planned schedule or route. We’d then head toward as many National Parks as we could and explore each of those as well.
