Program:  Fellow Self-Assessments: Where have you gone; where are you going?
Each fellow will have 5 minutes to elaborate on Question #4 of their pre-work “one-pagers” (see questions below). This is a chance for you to connect with other participants who have the same interests and issues in a moderated discussion.

  • What is the strategic goal you are working on now? (If it has changed since the July sessions, why did you change it?)
  • What two examples can you give of actions you’ve taken, decisions/plans you’ve made or executed, or other scenarios that represent positive movement toward your strategic goal?
  • What two examples can you give of remaining challenges that you need to successfully overcome to achieve your goal?
  • What targeted tactical plan will you and your peer ally focus on during the January on-site planning sessions?
