If there’s only one thing

You’ve got to know where you are starting from.

Sometimes we forget that. Wendy Hord, NYSUT’s health and safety guru, started her workshop on preventing violence in the workplace with a great way to remind people. “Everybody stand up. Close your eyes and now turn to where you think north is.”

Of course, we’re in a hotel, windowless rooms with no clue. Most of the room continues to point forward, which as it turns out, is east. “You’ve got to know where you’re starting from before you go anywhere,” Wendy says. And the lesson continues from there … My dear colleague Bernie Mulligan is there to cover the rest of that workshop, so I scoot out as I’ve got other pictures to take.
