In October 2015, I led a communication skills retreat for the Michigan State University Department of Forestry. Every year, their undergraduates learn about a new leadership topic. The series of courses was developed by faculty member Jessica Miesel, while I helped plan the specific activities to meet course objectives. This year, we had a blast practicing active listening, conflict negotiation, and reading body language. We plan to work on facilitation skills next year, and project management skills the year after that!
