Suedled during the podcast – it’s Kristen’s Empathy Cap!

i am not quite sure how this happened, but May is more than halfway over. (?!)

we are also more than halfway through the Committed Series. the series has sparked conversation, comments and all sorts of thoughts. Kristen Abell and i have been looking for a way to discuss some of these thoughts and we figured, why not sit down and talk about the series? that’s how this whole thing started anyway!

 

So for your listening pleasure – Our conversation on the Committed Series.

Feel free to comment or connect with us to discuss more.  Thanks for the support!

this Saturday marks many firsts for me.

 

it will be my first time traveling to Indianapolis.

ACPA will be my first national conference.

and (drumroll) it’s the first time #suedles will be on a national stage.

 

nervous excitement at its best!

nervous excitement at its best!

 

i’m excited to announce that  i will be sue-dlinglive

for the opening & closing sessions (and more!) at the ACPA National Convention

 

bringing visual language to our field can help ‘reinvent’ how we communicate with each other, process information and encourage this kind of expression in our home institutions. i’m pumped to be involved in such a unique way and grateful to those who helped make this happen.

 

if you are attending the conference be sure to say hi. oh, and keep your eyes peeled during the rest of the conference. you never know where you will find a suedle… 🙂

 

follow the backchannel using the #ACPA14 and #suedle from March 26th – April 2nd for conference fun and illustrations galore! 

stop! collaborate & listen.

there’s an awful lot of noise in our lives.

if you work in student affairs, the volume get particularly loud as autumn approaches. if you don’t, i bet you can point out a time during the year where you feel overwhelmed and possibly unheard.

today i was reminded that we can change that with one little (big?) adjustment.

how often do you take the time to listen?

no, not just hear the noise around you. how often do you take the time to LISTEN?

that adjustment can make the different between a mediocre and awesome moment.

break out those q-tips & happy friday.
