Interesting day: Guest lectured at the University of Southern California's School of Sociology's DV class. Spent a fair amount of time discussing personal safety strategies and saying "no." No surprise I recommended IMPACT. Had lunch with Dr. CarolAnn Peterson and Floyd Norman then sat in on Floyd's presentation to a leadership class. Floyd started his very long career in - wait for it - 1956, and is still consulting with them. The first African-American to be hired for long-term projects by Disney. I love days when I learn more than I teach.
