If you are new to the World Cafe, would you please share how you heard about this community?
I was first introduced to World Cafe process at a conference of utility managers. Susan Kelly mapped a conversation about the future of customer service. The result was inspiring.
What field is the primary focus of your World Café work (ONLY CHECK AREAS WHERE YOU ARE ALREADY ACTIVELY USING WORLD CAFE PLEASE)?
Health, Education, Corporate, Government, Community
What knowledge, skills or resources would you like to contribute to the World Café community to help it grow and flourish?
Having worked in corporations most of my life, my business background follows me into the World Cafe process. I have a studied ear for meaning that underlies words - I try to draw that deeper meaning out of the conversation and onto the canvas.
What would you most like to receive from this community?
When people are doing good work that moves people forward with positive outcomes, I want to hear about it - that inspires me.
Would you like to share a Web or Blog address?
What haven't we asked that you'd like to share?
I heard someone say recently that people need a "shared social object" in order to connect with others. I'm leaning toward visual metaphors in the form of graphic recording as a way for people to start conversations that really can matter.

I don't do a lot with Six Sigma though it is part of our initiative. My focus is more on teaming and Lean Manufacturing techniques. Glad to make the connection with you here and on LinkedIn.
