We closed out the third week of SHA 2010 with Kent Whitworth leading us in a discussion about organizational health and building an integrated culture. Then Trina Nelson Thomas helped to prepare the class for re-entry into their own organizations with strategies for implementing change and maintaining energy. Yesterday, the final day, the students shared their thoughts and recommendations for improving the seminar next year, and spoke about their intentions for continuing to develop themselves as leaders in their organizations and in the field.
Last night it was the class party, highlighted by songs about history organizations, set to popular tunes. I'll be posting one to YouTube later and will link to it through this blog.
It has been an amazing three weeks of focused learning. If you have not yet participated in the seminar, I urge you to do so. It will be one of the most significant steps you take in your professional growth. If you're interested in applying, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
