our mental model for today
Our Mental Model for Today:
  • You are here as a member of your leadership team. You may take a vacation from your daily identity.
  • This isn’t about “knowing” something at a deep level or a complete level.
  • This is time to explore ideas and possibilities with colleagues around the common theme of T/LC and standards.
  • This is step one of a longer process of systemic implementation.
