Approaching the end of the year, I find myself reflecting on the events from 2010. Obviously, this has been a year of change: In June, I left my role as Senior Manager (Operations & Infrastructure) in the Office of Information Technology to become the Campus IT Director at the University of Minnesota Morris. My first 100 days were very busy, responding to a previous IT audit, helping the campus migrate to Google Mail and Google Calendar, drafting a 5-year IT plan, among other projects.
I thought I'd also reflect on a few of my favorite blog posts from this year, in no particular order:
- Write moar good
- Speaking well
- Keep it short
- Meetings, bloody meetings
- Communicating through change
- What's your mistake strategy?
- The importance of measurement
- How to use PowerPoint
- Coaching buttons and conversation gifts
See you next year!
