What is your role with OCL? I am privileged to be a Professor for the OCL Colorado chapter. I completed my professor certification in January 2017 with my colleague, Rob Martin. I “discovered” the magic and power of Truly Human Leadership when I attended a communication skills training in Aspen in April 2016. I left that experience dedicated to approaching my relationships in new ways.
What is your day job/career: I knew I wanted to share this will ALL the people in my span of care so I kept nominating colleagues and staff at Colorado Mountain College (lots of them!) where I am fortunate to serve as the Vice President and Campus Dean of the Glenwood and Spring Valley campuses.
How did you become involved with OCL? Colorado Chapter Leader and Professor, Shara Brice and I, strategized to bring the training to all of Colorado Mountain College; that’s 7 campuses located over 12,000 square miles in the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains! And it’s happening!
What is your hope for OCL? I know that this training has an impact and that it changes people’s perspectives and actions for the better. I hope that we can bring this remarkable experience to Colorado Mountain College’s students and our mountain communities and start changing the world.
How do you most often find yourself using what you learned in CST? Every time I teach I am re-energized and re-dedicated to that vision of changing the world – and I’m reminded of all that is required. It all starts with the belief the everybody matters.
