Mark Wong offers this listening advice:
Don’t listen so you can solve the problem. Listen so you can experience the story.
Don’t listen to people’s words, listen to the moments.
Don’t just take turns to talk. Take turns to listen.
To honor the memory of our dear friend and colleague Dr. Joseph Windham, there will be a community Celebration of Life on Monday, January 5, 2015, at 7 pm at the Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center at Northern Virginia Community College,
