If we were in the "Bumper Sticker" business we might have created the following
Please answer any or all of these "Blue Ocean" Questions by replying below:
2011 We met Melissa Wade and the Glenn Pelham Foundation (thank you John Hurlbut) - who introduced us to DATC (Debate Across the Curriculum) - We have collaborated on D.A.T.E. (Debate Across the Enterprise)
2012 We met Jenny Trautman (thank you Ofra Tessler) and she donated her efforts to facilitate our planning sessions for event. She took us to a level we could not have reached on our own. She then did her "parlor trick" - graphical facilitation during the event and "stole the show!" - She earned it!
2013 We met in small groups throughout the year and Jenny Trautman facilitated several of the meetings. We had better conversations because the groups were smaller and focused.
2014 - Imani's post was unsolicited and was validation of the value we were trying to create.
2015 - Noor Shabib stole the show - she also deserved it. We hope she is doing well!
2016 The University of Phoenix (thank you Dr. Oggs) was an outstanding host and Todd Thurston captured the event on video. Axel Antonio https://www.linkedin.com/in/axel-antonio-314180ba/ may have stolen the show. The crowd designed solutions to impossible problems!
2017 The plan is for the ALO to be the key take-away but if history has taught us anything - then we know there will be a surprise!
2018 What do you suggest we try? (Why?)
Thank you Todd.
I like the idea of an optional service project--- servant leadership/ Service before self- I can appreciate this.
Thanks for bringing up that idea, Todd!
A theme for 2018 that builds on the ALO theme of 2017 is "Performance Assurance." This emerged from a conversation with Damian Hanft over breakfast on November 29th.
What does "Performance Assurance" convey to you?
