Hello learning friends,
I've got my bags packed and am anxious to travel south for some learning, laughter and strategic planning with my friends and fellow NCSPOD Board of Directors. With the recent flight delays across the east and south I'm hopeful I'll be able to bypass all of that and arrive in Orlando as scheduled tomorrow afternoon. My sister-in-law plans on picking me up at the airport (thanks Darla) and taking me out to eat before she drops me off at my hotel room. I've packed a book to read, "Finding It And Satisfying My Hunger for Life Without Opening the Fridge." by Valerie Bertinelli. I've read the first 2 chapters and so far....so good.
As President-Elect of NCSPOD I have been working, the past several days, to ensure I'm prepared for an engaging and productive strategic planning week-end. Before the strategic planning begins, Friday evening, I will be spending Friday at Disney. I know what you are thinking......Oh sure, Lauri, this sounds like hard work to me!!! However, it really is work related. One of my fellow board members knew a friend who knew a friend and has set up a wonderful behind the scenes experience that will allow us the opportunity to learn about Disney's programs and process for hiring, training and developing their employees. In my role at KCELT I am eager to learn from one of the leaders in hiring, training, and on-boarding. I'll be sharing what I learn so stay tuned! I'll post each evening so be sure to check back daily.
Once again, I'm excited to have you join me on this learning journey!
Sunny & warm Florida.....here I come!
