Our Commitment to One Another

  1. 1. Our Commitment to One Another<br />Create a space for authentic exploration, dialogue, and mutual respect and support.<br />Be the change we want to create.<br />
  2. 2. We create our own environment.<br />Listen twice speak once: listen deeply.<br />"We" know more, feel more, do more, and need more than "I" know, feel,do, and need.<br />
  3. 3. Welcome all that arises. Judgement before understanding and acceptance inhibits building synergistic relationships and confines meaning.<br />Bring your self-interest to the table.If you do not, you are not present. If you place yours above the group's you will be an outsider.<br />
  4. 4. Speak the TruthWe owe it to one another to speak the truth without having to have our truth prove another wrong.<br />Don`t Just Go AlongGoing along with that which you do not embrace and commit to does not honour who you are or those around you.<br />
  5. 5. Data must include stories.Data by itself is not enough. The stories we tell using the same data is where we find diversity, new possibilities, and can build or find a new story that is ours.<br />Change is personal and interactive. It impacts our identity, our values/beliefs, and change often shifts the balance of power. <br />
