Recently, Linda and Brian received news that a dear friend and mentor suddenly and tragically passed away. We were devastated and heartbroken…hurting for his wife and son, hurting for those influenced by his life, and grieving for our personal loss. He made a lifelong imprint on both Linda and myself as people and professionals. We did not choose this experience, we were chosen to share in this experience of grief, pain and suffering. In moments like these, you do not choose to be in pain, you just are. In moments like these, you do not choose to help, you just do. In moments like these, you do not choose to be human, you just are.

Transition will only provide transformation if we take time to remember and re-learn what we have already lived.
We often look for what is common and consistent in ourselves, teams we are a part of, or our larger culture. This perspective is important, as it helps us key into what is right about us and our environments, however, it is a limited view. As we turn our kaleidoscopes, looking at what’s consistently right about People, Teams, and Culture from a variety of angles, we gain a deeper understanding and application of Strengths and the diversity therein.
