Quite a number of years ago a colleague and friend of mine named Paula recommended attending a seminar conducted by a company in Eugene, Oregon called Wings Seminars. It turns out that my wife and I attended a whole series of Wings seminars and both consider the experience to be life changing.
Since that time I continued working in education but with a renewed spirit and a broader perspective on the impact that my life might have within and without my professional life. For the majority of my career I worked in public education. With grown kids and a newfound sense of adventure, we ventured overseas spending the past 5 years working in an American International School.
The quote at the bottom of this page is one that I wrote down during one of the Wings seminars. Although experts tell us to change our tagline because others will stop reading them unless they change regularly, I can’t seem to force myself to remove this from my email signature. It speaks directly to my beliefs about human development and to my mission to expose as many individual as I can to the possibility that they have it within their grasp to become a world changer.
Nearing the end of a career I admit to more than an inkling of angst regarding my next steps.
