Consultation is great for:
Boards of directors
What a great resource for all kinds of decision making whether it be a small group, a neighborhood gathering, city, national or international leaders working to solve problems. And what a great resource for family consultation. I find that the 5 steps leading to finding the truth in solving a problem is most beneficial and enables everyone to feel part of the process.
It’s a bold vision, a way of collaboration through respecting and honoring each member in a group, and seeing them as one. Realizing our inherent similarities, our mutual nature. The nature of love and belonging is at our core, we all share this. This book illustrates beautifully the principles and strategies for how to come together and make real change while honoring all the people involved. Whether it’s a big organization, or a family, these can apply to any group. There is brilliance in simplicity. And the author weaves in her own stories and experiences to show just how effective this consultation process is. I read it in one sitting, and feel changed.
