To create a vision and images of the social enterprise we want to become, share values, find common ground, and have mechanisms to review progress, we need to re-think how we interact. Most interactions today reflect a mindset of competition. As Banathy and Rowland have commented:
"We fight for the floor, insert ourselves in momentary silence, and attempt to convince each other of right (me) and wrong(you).This discourages listening and meaningful collaboration, the very things necessary for us to create a future together."
Does this seem familiar?
