My annual July sojourn in Winona, Minnesota. At Saint Mary’s University. I LOVE LOVE teaching in the masters program for Philanthropy and Development.
Cohort 27. Can you imagine? This program is 27 years old. And I’ve been teaching since 2000, Cohort 9.
Some great stuff from Cohort 27.
- We watched Brené Brown’s vulnerability video. If you haven’t watched it, do so! If you have, watch it again, as I do every year.
- Brandon noted that when we’re leading change, remember the 7 emotional triggers: Anger. Fear. Greed. Guilt. Flattery. Exclusivity. Salvation. SMART! Those emotional triggers are useful for more than fundraising!
- Geologist Jeff told us to check out KK.org. (Kevin Kelly) Some interesting stuff. For example: The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces that Will Shape out Future. And check his blogs.
P.S. Hey Cohort 27 members. Here are a few videos that we didn’t watch but I think you’ll find them cool and applicable to our first course together. How might you use some of this stuff back home? Go for it!!
