I’m combining business with education this weekend. I was hired to give my Distinguished Speaker Series talk for ASID-New England at the Design Center in Boston on Thursday. We worked it out so that I would come when I needed to be in Boston for my Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching training. My final session starts today and ends Sunday at 5pM. It’s been a terrific course for me, developing my coaching skills for working with teams, couples, partnerships and large organizations.
A fun side benefit of this Boston trip was pulling into the parking garage at the Westin Boston Waterfront. I knew I didn’t qualify for handicapped parking, and I was too late for the special spaces I’ve seen recently at Stew Leonard’s in Norwalk for expectant moms and parents of infants all located closer to the entrance than the rest of the parking spots. But right here, in this large hotel garage, there were spaces near the exit and elevators marked with green stripes for hybrid automobiles. I pulled my Toyota Camry right in and felt virtuous and privileged at the same time.
