Spring has arrived in Southern Nevada. The rays of light seem to be penetrating giving us the warmth that a ” being” finds refreshing, invigorating and energizing. Mother Earth is giving us the entrée to be out and about creating and imagining, “what if “?
What does “What if ” mean for you, a friend, family member or those you work with on a daily basis? In reading a quote from Henry Ford, his “what if” might have been, “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success.” To me, it means working with others – using ones imagination to be able to feel a change, see it, sense it, feel it and best of all redirect my focus to possibilities. No matter the descriptor or definition it is working and communicating with others. It is about us, all of us.
This past week I have had the opportunity to read and review the fine work, Practicum’s, of many of those that have joined us at Appreciative Inquiry Facilitator Trainings somewhere throughout the world. The stories are touching, encouraging and most of all speak of individuals coming together with a common purpose and outcome, as Henry Ford stated, “…working together is success.”
Individually, how can we create a difference for others thus changing ourselves?
