Additionally, I enjoyed the reading assignment for the class far more than I thought I would. Because of the busy week, I didn't read the books until today. I took a long lunch and read. When I got to the book, Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting out of the Box by Arbinger Institute, I read the first five chapters as assigned and found that I didn't want to stop. The story is engaging and you naturally want to keep reading to find out what happens next.

As I reflect on the week and this evening's classes, I find myself, as usual, appreciating my learning team, but the experiences of this week and the discussions in class tonight make me appreciate the total cohort that we're on this journey together. I think that appreciation started a couple of weeks ago when the individual presentations started, then last week with group presentations. During those two weeks, I heard people speaking in class for the very first time. Now tonight, we just went a little deeper together in class. From someone that gets energy from learning about others and knowing their stories, this evening has supplied me with lots of energy. So to my fellow cohort members, thank YOU.
