It’s nothing short of amazing what this project accomplishes through email, phone calls, texts, social media and virtual meetings. The internet makes LTYM accessible to a nation, even though the women who facilitate and sustain her live hundreds of miles from one another. Honestly, though? We yearn for face-time and I don’t mean an app! I mean the advantages of a physical works-space like cubicles, conference rooms, working lunches, and happy hours. Nothing can replace eye contact, body language, and the bonding plus laughter that ensues when coworkers can gather in real life to brain-storm, learn, problem-solve, strategize and DREAM.
This summer the team began discussing Listen To Your Mother as a leadership incubator, and how we might facilitate a first-ever IN PERSON leadership retreat. Within moments I knew exactly the spot where the LTYM national team could #DreamFearlessly together, face-to-face, and DreamBank Madison stepped in to make our retreat dreams a reality!
This December DreamBank Madison sponsors #LTYMDream16 where founder Ann Imig, diversity & inclusion consultant Taya Dunn Johnson, mentors Stephanie Precourt & Melisa Wells, and business strategist Deb Rox will gather together in person as a team—for the very first time–to realize LTYM’s dreams for 2016 and beyond!
Please follow our journey as we have our first epic group hug, as we explore @DreamBankMSN exhibits and share them with you via social media, and while we #DreamFearlessly in pursuit of our leadership potential and LTYM’s future!
