True change will happen from the inside when a connection is made to what is meaningful versus from what we think is important. This reflects inner change and change that we want to see in the world of organizations or institutions.
If one wants change in government, one way is to become involved inside the organization. This may increase the likelihood of being heard and sharing what is meaningful and connecting to the deeper meaning behind others actions. What is meaningful in each of us is not in conflict. It is the solutions we come up with or the actions taken without inclusion that are in conflict.
Imagine being able to connect and hear the meaning in each other ideas before action or solutions. Could this open the door to actions (or solution) reflecting what is meaningful to many?
Is it time to replace resistance with resiliency?
Renee’s ramblings resulting from a workshop after suggesting that a political leader would be meeting their needs and that they may believe they are making the best choice for all. My point was that underneath opinions and with true listening change will take place. No one willingly changes when they hear opinions of what they are doing wrong and how they should do it, especially when they are holding onto their own opinions that they are doing the right thing. Yet a meaningful expression of what our values are, even with our differences, we connect.
