Summertime and The Living Is Easy

I'm very glad to be staying home most of July, teaching in a Leadership and Social Change Portal at the Hotchkiss School here in Lakeville. The course explores the ways that narrative storytelling through film and personal essays informs leadership. Half of the participants will be Native American students about to enter Ivy League colleges for the first time. I hope to be able to help all of the students prepare for the next stage of their exciting young lives.
