Grand words for what we do every day!
I’m excited to share that the Mills College Public Policy Program has appointed me Professor of Practice for Fall 2015, and I’ll be leading a graduate seminar on Organizational Efficacy — the theory, art, and sheer willpower of getting things done in our world. Deep gratitude to mentor Carol Chetkovich for her trust and the extensive reading list. I look forward to meeting this year’s Mills cohort, and learning from our journey together. Do you have a case study to recommend? Please share!
Important work moves forward with our clients and friends. Best wishes to you and yours for a glorious summer!
