Welcome back! We are about to kick off our 2023-2024 learning season and there are so many exciting things coming up.
Let's jump right back into our blog series and meet another board member.
This month’s featured board member is our talented and dedicated VP of Programs. Kathleen Kerr has been involved with ATD Maine for many years. She loves being of service and has been thriving in this world of virtual connection.
Meet Kathleen Kerr!
Kathleen describes the Maine ATD chapter as a welcoming group. She would tell you that the group does important and serious work without it feeling like hard work.
As Kathleen and I discussed work and ATD, I was drawn in by how she articulated her appreciation for virtual meetings. As a self-proclaimed introvert, she explained that working from home allows her the alone time she needs to fill her cup to be really available when she connects with people.
She explained how connecting with people via Zoom, when everyone is comfortable in their own space, has allowed for a different level of intimacy that can add to the quality of those interactions, and I couldn’t agree more.
Can you guess her superpower?
One of her strengths and passions is connecting people to each other. Her sweet spot is learning about one person’s needs and introducing them to another person who can meet that.
If you have had the pleasure of attending training with Kathleen present, you know how talented she is at connecting people and concepts and encouraging discussion.
So what’s her favorite part of ATD?
As the VP of programs, Kathleen spends a lot of time and effort finding, connecting with, and getting to know talented humans from many backgrounds. She loves researching people and meeting them and then taking all the knowledge they share back to her organization.
Kathleen is looking for volunteers to join the Programming Committee! If you’re interested in connecting with Kathleen, you can reach her at Programs@tdmaine.org
