2019 Word of the Year

Yearly I put thought into a new Word of the Year.

These words become part of my year and help keep me on track of my goals in many different ways. They are never intended to disrupt me in any big way, but rather to help me along on my journey.

I encourage you to consider a word or phrase for yourself, on your own journey through life. Do you have a word that guides you as well?

This word has popped up in numerous conversations over the past few months and I can see how it will provide value for me in 2019 and beyond.

Webster defined Wondering as “desire or be curious to know something” as well as “feel admiration and amazement; marvel.”

Both of these definitions are applicable to my desire to wonder more as I journey forward in life. I want to continue to discover more knowledge and perspectives. I also enjoy admiring and being amazed by great things, words, events, and fabulous people in my life.

I intend to be #Deliberate as I apply this word of the year with #Purpose, #Focused on my goals as I execute the #Actions needed to be successful and show #Gratitude for my life.

DDI Certified

I had the honor of being selected by Forsyth Technical Community College to participate in a DDI Certified Facilitator class this March (2014).

It was nearly a full week of study, exercises, group sessions, practice facilitation, rinse & repeat.

There were six of us in the class from various community colleges across the state. We helped each other, laughed with each other and got to be friends during this class.

I packed my lunch (brown bag) for all three classes and spent at least 3 hours the first three nights studying and preparing my presentations for the following days.

The end result is that I now have six new great connections in community colleges around the state and I am a DDI Certified Facilitator and member of the DDI.

I can facilitate as many as 60 different courses from Development Dimensions International

Thanks Trish, Eddie, Larry, Patricia, Jackie & Sherri. I enjoyed our time together.
