About this learning opportunity

Why are we here?  What do we hope to accomplish together?  During/ After the Covid19 Pandemic the reset may be in order  upon returning back to school with your staff or departments at the system level.  This process results in an opportunity to focus on your team's function and purpose.  It results in more than revisiting statements but reviewing our beliefs and commitments to one another to ensure the work is aligned and focused on what is most important.
