It’s Friday. Time for a spirit lift. I know just the thing.
At the recent 2011 Starr Symposium (Age Becomes Us: Leading, Empowering, and Building Capacity Across the Generations), the lunch crowd jumped to its feet for a spontaneous dance when The Wild Women of Kansas City – oh yes, there are official ones in town — offered their rendition of the Gloria Gaynor classic “I Will Survive.” To feel the spirit, take a look at what a simple IPhone captured. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cioK-DKS-xQ
If you look carefully, you will see writer and activist Gloria Steinem, social justice activist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers Union Dolores Huerta, and The Leadership Professor enjoying the moment. (More on the substance of this amazing symposium in future posts.)

Spontaneous and audacious dancing encouraged – preferably with your office door opened!
