Guiding Thought (from Dr. John Haskell, University of Manchester Law):  

We all face doors that seem locked in our lives at various moments. Sometimes they are; sometimes it is just a matter of the wrong key. Sometimes it is just that there are other doors we aren’t seeing. But there is always something to do about a situation and often the best way to get unstuck (or to stay unstuck) is to have opportunities to brainstorm with others. We hope these sessions help facilitate everyone to discover more and better choices in their professional and political life journeys.
