Warm wishes to you during this winter season. As a programming note, we will be taking a break on posts until January. Feel free to explore the archives.

We hope everyone has a chance to reflect on the things they are thankful for and to think about how we will improve ourselves, our communities, and our organizations in the new year. We look forward to returning in 2015 and to continue supporting you in ways big and small!

We recently talked with Paul Torkelson about his leadership story. Paul is a representative in the Minnesota House of Representatives and an alum of the Minnesota Agriculture and Rural Leaders program. Watch and listen about how knowing yourself can contribute to more effective leadership.

To hear more stories about how Minnesota leaders are doing great things for the state and their communities, visit our Perspectives on Leadership page.

Happy Thanksgiving!
