We were asked yesterday what's core to our work. In ironic reflection of the current political zeitgeist, it's genuine engagement. We create spaces in organizations where people can discover the possibilities of engagement of their passions and strengths so engagement can also become more possible in their civic and personal spaces.
We do not have time to wait for institutional leaders to find the skill and will to create engagement instead of hierarchies and mediated democracies. We need to help people learn how to be engaged in their workplaces so they can practice and promote engagement in all places. This is the deep why of our work.
