The 3rd week in October is the Worldwide Week of Partnership.  This event, created by Power & Systems in Boston, is to build awareness about what it takes to create partnership in our communities, organizations, and homes.  The work of Barry Oshry shows that much that gets in the way of partnership feels personal. It isnt.  We are humans doing our best to survive in the different worlds.  If we see those worlds, we can be more understanding and more effective in building partnerships.

"All you need is love" -is not quite true according to Adam Kahane.  In his book, Love and Power, he suggests we need to stay in the tension of both love and power.  Love, the drive to unity, brings out the best in power.  Power brings out the best in love - to create.  Based on years of working with tough problems around the world, Adam Kahane has learned how we need to learn to dance with both to make a difference in our communities.

Why Do Good People Do Bad Things - September 9, 2013

It is easiest to think there is a line: on my side are the good people and on the other side of the line are the bad ones.  However, the line is much more permeable than we would like to think.  Peer pressure, time pressure, tunnel vision are just a few of the ways we slip into duplicity or hurting others.  How do we look at ourselves with clear eyes and then learn to forgive.
