Wilder @ a Glance


Not a Dog in the Fight

I am writing this during the Super Bowl. It's a little weird not having a dog in the fight...especially hard since your favorite football team has moved (2nd time to experience it in my life), however I do enjoy it immensely. I've always thought the Monday after the Super Bowl should be a holiday - anybody with me?

Now for another great week.

Spring Meetings Feedback

The Spring Meetings are officially completed. Through out the week , I will be adding notes regarding our conversations on your growth plans. I enjoyed chatting and spending one-on-one with each of you. I would like some feedback regarding the experience so I can make sure they are a valuable as possible for you in the future.

Please click on the button below (Padlet) and provide me with the good, the back, and the no so cool of our Spring Meetings.

Seeing things from a different persepctive

To manage the change many of us are going through, it's important to adjust our perspectives about the goals of our work. Below is a great video that addresses the importance of "seeing things from a different perspective."
