When people come together to talk about issues and opportunities which are in common, it’s not uncommon for a spontaneous combustion of generosity to occur.
Passion rises as folks realize the space is safe for collaborative dialogue, and the momentum builds.
Possibilities begin to emerge – like popcorn – as the participants begin to let go of their inhibitions/reservations about daring to trust each other. With each new idea and perspective, the blocks of the walls of hesitancy begin to crumble. Trust builds as we engage more and each of us become more willing to be more transparent and emboldened to push the boundaries.
Every new thought builds the excitement as potential, emergent solutions give rise to a now unstoppable force that transforms into ACTION!
“TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves MORE is not just another cliche”
It’s simply what happens when the right people show at the right time in the right place to explore in-common, BURNING issues.
It’s even more juicy when there’s a diversity of people, perspectives, ideas, backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, experiences AND potential for conflict.
When these conditions converge around important issues, and opportunities are present, UNBELIEVABLE – unfathomable things come to fruition.
A veritable EXPLOSION of generous creativity.
I see this happen EVERY time a group opens space.
Open Space Technology ALWAYS works . . .
Expect to be surprised!
Yesterday, I had the privilege of opening space with 25 very sharp Real Estate Principal Brokers, and guess what?
