I'm thinking about...
As we prepare for my collaboration and partnerships workshops I invite participants to consider who they are and what they bring to this work.
And to bring some small physical item that they might be able to talk to as part of their personal introduction.
I am always in awe by the depth of thought that goes into these preparations and the variety of presentations. I often find these times early in the session are personal and moving (tears and laughter are common place!) and provide an opportunity to connect deeply. I am always thankful for individuals’ readiness to be vulnerable and share from their heart.
After we share, we are ready to begin our work together.
Yesterday one senior leader walked in with this beautiful basket of fruit. As I commented on how lovely it was he said, “Our cup runneth over!” A true reflection of abundance and generosity and service for the community.
Thank you to everyone at yesterday’s hui for your generosity.
