Speaking Directly 

While in Ohio, I had the privilege of meeting with several program managers and their board members. I was reminded of time demands and the conflicting areas that require our immediate attention. This is true for new program directors as well as by seasoned directors. And how do we take care of ourselves, too often by eating lunch at our desks!

This week take care of yourself, get away, get out, build a relationship, have lunch with someone else at least once this week! Networking, pays off! 

Speaking of networking -- budget now, to join us in 2014. In order to soar, you need training, practice, and affirmation. All of this, and more, will be yours while at Lake Junaluska.
