This weekend, the change in the air that says “school” was palpable, even here on beautiful and (still sunny) Bainbridge Island, Washington. Berry’s are going by, the marine air has a “Fall” weight to it, and the book I’ve been writing on EMERGE Leadership this summer is nearly written! (Three more chapters. So….close.)
So it’s timely to post this winter’s workshop schedule and launch registration.
