Friday Five: How I spent my Thursday

 A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader, a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves.
I had an awesome day at training yesterday and have more to come today. We did lots of learning, but also some teambuilding and leadership exercises. I capped off my night with fun and relaxation. For your viewing pleasure a photo tour of my Thursday.
1. Learning about leadership. I am awesome, but even the great can be better.
2. My team effectively constructed the best shelter using available resources. This isn't our shelter, but just an image I could find. I need to remember to take more pictures.
3. Capped off my night with a few of these:
4. One of these:
5. And a little of this:
Why I Kick A$$: Because I have run two marathons and a colleague flattered me (and another marathoner) by asking us questions about running and giving us a face of amazement. I love it, I really felt accomplished to talk like I am a real marathoner.

Thankful Three
  1. Professional Development...have I told you how much I value the time and energy that goes into quality and effective training.
  2. Pacifico
  3. Way too many snacks last yummy!
