Happy Thanksgiving! For the first time since August, we have an entire week-end off with no boardroom session, and no exam. I have to admit that I am daydreaming about how I will relish this time with my family. With the fast pace of our program, these moments of rest are a rare occurrence. It is also an opportunity to pause and take stock of the past five months since starting the CQEMBA; in doing so, I want to give a special shout-out to my boardroom team.
One core tenet of the CQEMBA program is working and learning as part of one team for the entire length of the program. I am thankful for a team who supports one another and works together collaboratively. Of course, working closely together with people in such an intense environment also brings about a set of challenges. Yet, some of the team’s greatest growth and development has occurred when we have persevered through difficult moments. It has been an eventful summer and fall, and I look forward to all that we will learn and achieve in the coming months. Thanks Team Markham!
