Post its are to start conversations, not to be the final product. ‘Tell me more about….’ is a simple invitation to the other to tell us stories.
From the Blog on Change
Having an opinion or an assertion about the way things are and the change you would like to see is not arrogant. It is necessary. It is human.
When we encounter complex challenges, we struggle because our binary thinking doesn’t work. We search for ‘the’ starting point, which doesn’t exist.
Signposting happens all around us. Maps have legends showing us the colour of roads, size of cities, railroad tracks, and so on.
‘I didn’t expect it go that way’ is different from ‘I don’t where this is going’. Convening is not about control, it is about gathering the others together.
There are scenes that once we see, we can not unsee. And there are seminal moments in in history, which shift our collective consciousness into action.
Perhaps it’s time to come together on a call to both define the ‘problem’ and discuss ideas of different ways forward.
Permission and approval from others does not change the fact it might not work. Convening costs little, but does come with the risk that you might be alone.
One matters little, two brings novelty, but three, three creates change. Phones are relatively useless unless two (or more) people want to talk to each other.
