Today was full, mostly on "The Vision" for the kind of organisation you want to run/lead/work in. There is no quick handout and off you go.....there are deep discussions on sticky topics in small groups......I find it very challenging to be an engaged listener and a thoughtful contributor when so much is going around in my head - so much I need to still sort out and make sense of. I try not to jump to work that I must do when I get back, conversations I must have, changes I must initiate....I try to stay in the moment and be that reflective thinker person I aspire to be.
So while I mull it all over and let is sink in, here are some amazing quotes from the presentations today.
Management is doing things right. Leadership is doing the right things. - Peter Drucker
When you provoke curiosity you grow reflection - Margie Carter
The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become - Charles Dickens
Dreams are a living picture in the mind, generating energy - Sylvia Ashton-Warner
The moment one give close attention to anything - even a blade of grass - it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself - Henry Miller
