Last fall, Tonya Drayden took us on an adventure along the Camino de Santiago, her 500-mile pilgrimage through France and Portugal to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. While showing images of scenery and people along “The Way,” Tonya presented a candid view of her motivation and learnings as she wandered, including themes surrounding family, life/work imbalance, personal relevance, and goals for the future.
The discussion following Tonya’s presentation demonstrated just how much these topics (and uncertainties) resonate and continue to take front and center in our lives. Many participants expressed a desire to continue the conversation, so we are offering an opportunity to do just that.
The Year-End Quarterly Social gave us a chance to pick up the threads from Tonya's presentation. We discussed how we have retained or regained relevance as personal and family relationships evolved, and as careers decelerated into retirement.
