“You probably don’t remember me, but I was in a class you taught many, many years ago in Pierre, South Dakota for the Department of Game, Fish and Parks. I can still vividly remember the lessons I learned from your project management computer simulation that we used. I have lost track of the number of times I have reminded myself, and those around me (including my superiors), that the answer to a problem is not just to throw more people into the mix. In my current role managing a remote fish hatchery supervising a super-star team of people doing unprecedented great things, I rely on what I learned from you about teamwork, project management, and effective supervision.”

Thank you!
