Stuff

For years, to close out each week and set teams up well for the following, I have sent emails on Fridays called ‘Wrap Ups’.

In each, there is a section of inspiring or provocative things I have read, listened to, watched, or caught my eye that week. I have had good feedback on them so figured others might enjoy or find them useful too.
