Negotiations with Transformation Northfield degenerate into finger pointing of biblical proportions

John George and Griff WigleyLong-time Transformation Northfield member John George and I met yesterday morning in my corner office at the GBM in an attempt to reconcile our differences since the big discussion about TN.

We were making considerable progress towards détente but in the end, we could not come to agreement as to who should pay for coffee. A summit is scheduled for April 14 at the next TN breakfast where John is a presenter.

Update 3/21: David Koenig was kind enough to take the photo. He then told us to keep it down as we were disturbing him and other patrons.

    Just to clear up some terminology, I don’t consider myself a co-founder of TN. I have been involved with the leadership people since before its inception, but that is about as far as it goes.

    John, I changed the wording to “Long-time Transformation Northfield member…”

    Let me know if you’d prefer something else.

    Can I sit at your table while John’s speaking, Nancy? I need to line up some friendly faces ahead of time. 😉

    Absolutely Griff; however, I must warn you that assumptions about friendly faces can be dangerous…….
