About the class:
“Baby steps get you there faster” – Steve White!
#celebrateapproximations is likely the biggest hashtag I use! And these two words (celebrate approximations) are echoed in so many threads and conversations within the ATA content & our community!
Last year – I was even lucky enough to present at the PPG ‘geek week’ event about what these two words mean & why they are so important to me! A MASSIVE part of that presentation was giving credit to and – the sharing of concepts/ideas – that I learned from Sarah Owings! Consequently, I reached out to Sarah earlier this year and asked if together she wanted to create a piece of content with me talking about our experiences, how we implement/live the concept of celebrating approximations (I.e operationalize these words) and how you can as well!
And for this live event we want to invite you all into the conversation – to come and share your stories/ideas, ask your questions and learn together … So that together we can continue to approximate our way to success!
NOTE: Original credit to the term “Celebrate approximations” goes to the amazing – one and only – Susan Friedman
