Coming back form the annual MINT Forum, I'm always filled with a mixture of emotions, and this year is no exception. I just spent the past week with 300 people who provide training in Motivational Interviewing, and despite the fact that we live all over the world, many of us are like family. I was sad to leave them at the end of the week, but thrilled to be back home.
This year, we were together in Berlin, Germany, and we shared a cultural and intellectual experience like none other.
Next year, we're off to Montreal, Canada, and as excited as I am about our next location, I still argue that it doesn't matter where we go on the map. The experience of looking across the dinner table at friends from Sweden, Japan, Chile, South Africa, and Poland is remarkable in any corner of the world.
