Hello, old friends;
New purpose on this blog: To discuss 30,000 foot, big picture issues as Executive Director of Imagine SLS with our community of clients, staff, families, colleagues and, of course, my old friends from this blog if you return. The main difference will be: more focus on things as Imagine experiences them and less focus on controversial political issues. A secondary difference will be more aggressive deleting of comments which seem antagonistic. A little less beerhall and more tea salon.
That said, the purpose of this blog will be to explain what passes through what passes for a mind in the Executive Director of imagine and to solicit input. No individual client issues will be discussed, obviously, nor matters with individual staff and in that sense the focus will be what it has been: How Imagine and other agencies can better perform for the people we serve and the communities those people share.
The first series will be about some of the thinking behind our all-staff training in May. Interested staff can walk into that meeting with extra awareness of the substance of the training and having helped to shape it.
