I’m kicking off this year 2014 with dedication to growing the potential of groups. The group is the fundamental narrative of connection and transformation. Every amazing hope known to the human experience in every era began with the magic of small groups making the impossible more possible.
A group’s potential is its unpredictable capacity for learning, relationships and significance. This is true whether we’re talking about informal and formal groups in education, organizations or communities.
Groups flourish to the extent they realize their potential.
The good news is that we now have the science to animate any group’s potential. The more groups learn the science of flourishing, the smarter and better they become together. They learn to claim authorship of their present in ways that creates the future they want to see.
Everything we wish for will happen because groups flourish. This is our most important opportunity on the planet.
