“Don’t be afraid of the answers. Be afraid of not asking the questions.”
– Jennifer Hudson
It is hardly breaking news that we are living in an increasingly complex and uncertain world. We are seeing this everyday, witnessing changes in many systems. Many of us are exploring how to deal with this uncertainty and host change in the systems we are part of. This is no easy task, and there are no simple answers as to how.
We need good questions to guide us in our personal lives, families, organizations and nations. We need questions to seed the conversations that really matter, engaging others to address and explore new and better ways of doing what needs to be done.
“The First People had questions and they were free. The Second People had answers and they were enslaved”.
Will you join us?

What is the format?
We’ll be using a participatory, peer-learning format that will draw on the power and expanse of our shared experience and increase our capacity to learn with and from each other.
Working online, we can take advantage of the international scope of our inter-connected communities.
