He meets his employers, Dr. Zubritsky (Gary Frei) and Lenya Zubritsky (Alecia Miller) and immediately falls in love with his beautiful pupil, Sophia (Allison Jacob). Snetsky (Roger Jones), Slovitch (Debbi Roth), Yenchna (Amber Porter), Mishkin (Jordan Wehrs), the Magistrate (Wayne Kling), and Count Gregor (Brad Linberg) complete the colorful cast of characters as Leon attempts to break the curse by educating Sophia.

Women's Leadership Book Club

The Goat Coffee House, 336 Water Street, Eau Claire, WI
Looking for a chance to invest in your professional development in a casual, no cost way? Come to the Western Dairyland Women's Business Center's Women's Leadership Book Club, February 13, 2015.

We will meet monthly at The Goat Coffee House, 336 Water Street, Eau Claire. Discussion, facilitated by Karman, will start at 8:00am, but feel free to come early to network and chat over coffee and yummy baked goods.

This month, we'll be reading and discussing First, Break All the Rules: What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently. We'd love to see you there!

The world's greatest managers differ in sex, age, and race. They employ different styles and focus on different goals. Despite their differences, great managers share one trait: They break virtually every rule conventional wisdom holds sacred. They don't believe that, with enough training, a person can achieve anything he sets his mind to. They don't try to help people overcome their weaknesses. They disregard the golden rule. They even play favorites. Gallup presents the remarkable findings of its massive in-depth study of great managers - those who excelled at turning each employee's talent into performance.

Companies compete to find and keep the best employees using pay, benefits, promotions, and training. But these well-intentioned efforts often miss the mark. The front-line manager is the key to attracting and retaining talented employees. This amazing book explains how the best managers select employees for talent rather than for skills or experience, how they set expectations, how they motivate people, and how they develop people.

Gallup's research produced twelve simple questions that distinguish the strongest departments of a company from the rest. This book introduces this essential measuring stick and proves the link between employee opinions and productivity, profit, customer satisfaction, and rate of turnover.

Dog Sledding and Snowshoeing at the Henke Farm

Beaver Creek Reserve Wise Nature Center S1 Cty Road K Fall Creek, WI 54742
There is something magical about watching a team of dogs as they push forward through the snow, tails wagging in excitement, moving as one. This is what sled-dogs were born to do and they love nothing more than the opportunity to share their love of mushing with you. Come out to our satellite property, the Henke Farm, and join a group of fellow dog mushing enthusiasts. You can stay warm by the fire sipping on soup or a steaming cup of hot chocolate or, if you’re not ready to sit down then strap on a pair of snowshoes and do some more winter exploration as you wait for a turn with the dog team and guide, Howard Thompson. The sled can accommodate two adult riders, or one adult and two small children, with a choice to sit or stand. Each sled trip goes on a 1 ¼ mile loop trail. Bring your kids or grandkids to share a special winter moment with, or surprise your special someone with a Valentine’s Day adventure they will never forget. We’ll caravan from the Nature Center to the Henke Farm. Don’t forget to dress warm!

Tree and Shrub ID in Winter

Beaver Creek Reserve Wise Nature Center S1 Cty Road K Fall Creek, WI 54742
Leaves are one of the biggest clues for tree and shrub identification. So what do you do when there are no leaves? Winter offers a special time to appreciate trees and shrubs in a totally different way. This program will point out unique bud and bark characteristics of many of our native trees and shrubs, making identification possible even in winter! A power-point and a hands-on session inside will be followed by an outdoor hike around the Reserve to apply what we learned inside. Some easy tips and a simple winter tree and bark key will be provided for participants to take home. Bring warm clothes and boots along for the outdoor portion of the program.
