Have Workshops. Will Travel.

This was a good day. Decision made. I'm getting back in the open seminars biz after having spent years of almost exclusively conducting in-house sessions.

Conducting workshops is both exhilarating and exhausting. My favorite part has always been the interactions with class members as we've explored ideas and approaches. I recall a group from one company in the Midwest that returned to the same class two years in a row because, as they put it, "Even though we were here before, we knew we'd get something new."

They were right. The process, if done properly, should be a mutual learning experience. When you are teaching management workshops, hearing what people in the front lines are encountering is essential.

As I said, a good day. Look for me at an airport near you.

Michael, send me any marketing materials and I'll help get them around and, of course, see when you are near. Thanks, E.

Thanks. I'll let you know when I get to your neck of the woods.
