This morning, a rather warm morning I stepped out of doors to run an errand. Upon leaving the building I heard a familiar sound. The sound emanated from a flock of Canadian Geese, flying rather low, headed South. The call of the Canadian Geese was very familiar as I was reminded of my experiences while working or visiting my Aunt and Uncle on their working ranch. It was a beautiful sight and a treat to hear their call or honk.
Did you know that a flock of Canadian Geese will fly, at times, 1,500 miles in a twenty-four hour time period. A Canadian Goose is a social bird remaining in their flock throughout the year. The V formation while in flight is well known. There is a lead “honker” with the others following or drafting behind. Eventually, the honker flying “point” will wait for the others to pass him falling to last in line for a rest.
I pictured this as a metaphor, an example of a strong social behavior, teamwork, flying in formation with the intent of not only drafting but disciplined in supporting the flock. How often do we as individuals or organizations practice this type of behavior? A behavior that is supportive, organized and disciplined in the best interest of the flock.
We as beings can do the same.
Professional development for the seasoned expert and beginner…
The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) program is a comprehensive three-tiered teacher and trainer development program that serves as the foundation for several professional development activities The ISW typically is facilitated by two ISW Facilitators [See Instructional Skills Workshop Facilitator Training].
The ISW is offered within a small group setting and is designed to enhance the classroom effectiveness of both new and experienced teachers or trainers. During the four-day workshop that is facilitated by two ISW Facilitators, approximately five teachers or trainers design and conduct three “mini-lessons” and receive oral, written and video feedback from the participants who have been learners in the mini-lessons. Using an intensive experiential learning approach, participants are provided with information on the theory and practice of teaching or training adult learners, the selection and writing of Intended Learning Outcomes with accompanying lesson plans, techniques for eliciting learner participation, and suggestions for evaluation of learning.
The ISW encourages reflection and examination of one’s teaching/training practices with feedback focused on the learning process rather than on the specific content of the lesson. Effective feedback skills, practiced in the workshop, are useful for classroom teachers or trainers and also as they fulfill their other organizational tasks.
The ISW engenders participatory learning and the building of community that can transfer back into the classroom and the school, college, university, or organizational setting. Participation in an ISW creates an opportunity for new teachers or trainers to learn about the unique culture and value system of the organization and can also be a renewing and revitalizing activity for more seasoned teachers or trainers. Added benefits are a sense of collegiality, team building, self discovery, and learning new approaches to working with others.

Heather Henson (left) and Melissa Robaina (right) are all smiles as they partake in a local cleanup in celebration of Earth Day
On April 22, 1970 over 20 million Americans rallied in the streets, parks, schools, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment. According to earthday.net, “Groups that had been fighting against oil spills, polluting factories and power plants, raw sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, freeways, the loss of wilderness, and the extinction of wildlife suddenly realized they shared common values”. That day in 1970 is one to remember. As a result of everyone’s efforts, Congress enacted the United States Environmental Protection Agency in addition to passing the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species acts.
Company of Experts got down and dirty in celebration of Earth Day. The Company’s Social Marketing Director, Melissa Robaina, along with their student intern, Heather Henson, joined Get Outdoors Nevada – an interagency volunteer program – in its fight to preserve the desert ecosystem. Together they spent hours picking up trash in a remote area east of the Las Vegas strip that is often used for illegal dumping. More than thirty volunteers from around the Las Vegas area joined the cleanup efforts in order to restore the desert landscape to its beautiful, well-kept state.
When asked to reflect about the cleanup event Melissa replied, “This experience has been humbling and has ignited my desire to find additional ways to ‘go green’. I am very thankful to work for the Company of Experts’ whose principles not only value the people we serve, but the world for which sustains us all.” Heather’s response was brief and to the point, “Life is a garden, dig it.”
