  7. 7. Page Evolve’s 5 C’s CONTRIBUTION: People need varied and meaningful ways to contribute and are supported with the necessary capability (resources and information) to do so. CHOICE People are naturally curious and enjoy acquiring and exploring new ideas and information. They like to have a CHOICE about when, how and where they do this. CONNECTION: People enjoy having genuine opportunities to CONNECT with others, exchange thoughts, grow, evolve and improve. CLARITY Participants derive CLARITY from clear communication of the meeting objectives, process and intended outcomes. CONTINTUITY Meetings are part of a process, which, through continuing communication, can lead to the development, maintenance and strengthening of authentic long-term relationships between participants. It is critical to celebrate events and milestones in that relationship.
