Caryn Davies came to speak to the AIM Central Massachusetts CEO Connection group of which I am a part, and I was fortunate to be able to include many members of our team here at Lutco as part of the audience and discussion.  Caryn comes with many years of proven team involvement over many Olympic cycles, and as a part many other teams that she has been involved in and been a part of their success.  This differentiates her from many others in the sport of rowing because it is one thing to be a part of a successful team, but entirely another to be a part of many different successful teams, often in the same pivotal position on each of those teams.  The stroke seat.  This coupled with her real experience in other areas of professional life truly qualified her to bring real benefit as a speaker.  And bring that benefit she did.  Speaking specifically about empathy for oneself, ones team mates, working with team members each in different ways to bring out the strongest possibilities of success are only a few of the unique perspectives she shared.  She inspired without question, but most importantly enabled every single member of my team, as well as those members of our CEO connection group to think differently and impactfully about their own experiences.  It was truly valuable.  I hope it is not the last time we are able to enjoy her company!”
