Building your toolkit
Have you ever started a project and realized you didn’t have a tool that is necessary? It has happened to me so many times. It used to frustrate me, but now I take the trip to the hardware store with joy because I get to add another tool to my toolbox.
As I enter my last week at Prosper Waco, it is causing me to reflect on this portion of my career and the opportunities it has provided for me to sharpen my skills and add to my toolkit. One of the main tools that I have developed is more of a multi-use tool. The seven elements of collective impact is that multi-use tool that has shaped my work at PW but also will be a skill that I take into the next portion of my career.
My time at Prosper Waco has been very meaningful. The work we accomplished was great, but the relationships that were built are what I will take with me. This is my last week at Prosper Waco, but I am not going very far. I look forward to connecting with many of you as I move over to the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce to lead their workforce and talent initiatives.
