CHECK IN - What do you hope to get from today?
Come together – recognised a common calling
Lots of energy for the beauty of the process …. being together
Magic happens ….. something you don’t expect …. and it’s beautiful
Intention to hold today lightly
In a learning phase
Nice to have people say “we’ve always got your back”
Wondered “How could this way of working ever thrive in the government sector?” …. And I’ve seen the exponential changes in my workplace
Keep the wank factor out of it
Amazes me how simple this stuff is ….. it brings about change
I really like learning from people. I sit back and wish I was as good as other people ……. Stalking other people and seeing what they do. It’s about doing it differently
Wake up with a smile on my face ….. I get to do this stuff full-time
I need a bit of a fix ….. a stop, reconnect and a think
Being human ….. being able to sit in those kinds of conversations …. Inspiring …. Energising
“Clarity of purpose is the invisible leader”
Listen with curiosity
Fear and doing it anyway
“What’s the risk if I don’t do it?”
Trembling …. The point of no return
