    • Connecting People and PlacesAchieving the Vision (My F Words)
    • Connecting People and Places Keep the participants in the discipline that you are discussing.Keep the “buzz words” consistent and ensure that there is an understood definition. Embrace the fact that you don’t know everything. Play devil’s advocate role. Don’t lose sight of what the effort is supposed to produce. Give them the freedom to discover how difficult it is.
    • Connecting People and Places You have got to be flexible to make this work. Let them explore concepts and ideas. Don’t interrupt or interfere with the process.Take the time to fully develop concepts and ideas. Help only when asked.
    • Connecting People and Places Have faith in the people you are working with. Have faith that they will debate every idea to death. Have faith that they will debate every idea to death. Have faith that they will debate every idea to death. Have faith that they will try to meet a deadline.Have faith that they will stick with it through to the end of the project. Have faith.
    • Connecting People and Places There will be failure. Failure is a good thing. Learn to get the most out of the failure.It may be more of a step backwards than a failure. Deal with it and move on.
    • Connecting People and Places Stick with it.Don’t walk out of a meeting frustrated say what you need to say. Bite your tongue hard but realize it will heal. Keep the task horizon in mind and keep pushing it.
    • Connecting People and PlacesThank everyone for the time they have put into the process. Have “them” present the results. Have “them” keep pushing the approved task. Do what you have to do to keep “them” on the project. Pizza goes a long way.
