New Run at Old Runways: Space for Renewal

In Rochester, New York, where I work – we’re ripe for a new run at old runways, the kind that Captain Sully grew ready for before a crisis changed his flight. Been there?

That touchdown where carriers cruise into place,  brimming over in lessons learned from former mistakes  – and refueled by sheer curiosity. That landing where fresh ideas replace rusted ruts. Does that describe your workplace? Your brain?

Microsoft previews mind-bending inventions that promise to jettison folks into the next few years’ learning and leading adventures. Ready for transformation?

Your brain’s equipped for dynamic change, with a wee bit of help from you. Agree?

    Maybe that why Wm Yeats said learning is not the filling of pails but it is the lighting of fires. Agree?
