I was in NYC Monday thru Thursday of last week. I had my leadership team together to do a Q1 kick-off to make sure we were all aligned on the objectives and goals for the Quarter and beyond. It was pretty late when I arrived on Monday at the new W hotel next to WTC site. My room looked out on the construction and the nearly complete memorial. Of course that view brought on an on-rush of thoughts and emotions. My directs are from all over the country and for many it was their first time back in lower Manhattan since 9/11. To a person they were all unsettled by being at that spot.
We had a long couple of days as we had so many topics to cram into 2 days. I thought it was well worth the time and effort. The only downside is that I came down with a nasty sinus and chest cold which robbed me of my voice and caused me to miss 4 days of training. 4 days off in a row. A pretty big setback. I think I could have done low intensity strength training but decided that would only prolong the thing,
