I recently spent a few days in Vancouver training with The Coaches Training Institute. It feels invigorating and very satisfying to have been in the role of learner for a few days. Lifelong learning is a fun and generationally correct (for me) item to converse about, but I feel I may not have been placing myself in learning situations enough in the last few years. Easier to espouse than to do. Seventeen of us spent a lot of time in the same room over the course of 3 days and we learned a lot about each other and ourselves. It was enlightening, emotional at times, clumsy, profound and so damn satisfying, I can’t wait to do it again soon. I want to thank every one of the participants and each of the trainers for a wonderful learning experience.
