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.
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.
