Hi David -- Thank you so much for the warm welcome! This has been a long time coming.

 

Very happy to share stories! I'm excited to say a recent project where I combined the world cafe with appreciative inquiry worked extremely well.  The project was  a listening tour related to change management within a company.  Rather than lead focus groups, we hosted cafes, to convey that much of the insight from the conversation could potentially be acted upon by the folks in the room locally. We also used cafe questions to elicit stories about leading and responding to change both, so there was a sense of shared ownership of the whole change experience. The indicator of how well this worked were the "provocative propositions" the table groups came up with in the last round. Very inspiring commitments to how the company wants to share in leading and responding to change, written by people of all levels, almost every one of which sounded like it could have been written by the CEO!

I'm really looking forward to engaging here with you all. Please let me know if there's a better place to share stories such as that one.

 

And btw, I get to speak about the book at the Commonwealth Club on April 13. Will post an event -- would love to have the World Cafe Community come share their thoughts on courage, compromise, and how we can inspire greater trust and integrity in the world!

Thanks, David, I look forward to discovering how this whole systems works and relates to future discoveries for myself, but more importantly the hundreds of families I work with on a daily basis...
