I can't seem to get enough of the wine country to the west of my humble environs. For the second time in as many days, I find myself in Santa Rosa. I'm helping facilitate a strategic planning retreat. It's my first real gig since I started the collaborative governance certificate, which is just about the most useful thing I've ever embarked upon.
If I had only had a sense of myself and my ability to do work like this when I was younger-- I'd have perhaps come into my own a bit sooner, made more money and been more secure, financially, socially, professionally and personally.
Regardless, this retreat is a great learning and networking opportunity, and I intend to work it!
