Yes, why DID I drink a glass of buttermilk yesterday? I volunteered to be a change agent in a group exercise that involved convincing my group to drink a litre of buttermilk. As if that wasn't hard enough, the buttermilk was colored green. Gross? Yes!
I was at a day-long learning event called Creating The Momentum For Business Success, lead by Eric Morse, Ph.D. of the Richard Ivey School of Business. The point of the exercise was to connect with the difficulties of group change. Nothing like a hands-on exercise to really understand the learning material.
In the end, our group drank the buttermilk (kudos to Owen for drinking 1/2 the litre himself!) and we were the first to be done. It was a great day. Many thanks to Eric and KPMG.
