Exactly one year ago, your statement, “Yak head, sheep body – you going to create funny animal!”, generated much laughter amongst the 60 corporate executives and 60 social sector leaders participating in the Connecting for Change Dialogue here in Vancouver.
I am not sure if we created a new animal, but since that day there have been many ripples of connection, that have led to building new, and enhancing existing, collaborations to help make a difference in the world.

In his wonderful Book of Wisdom, the Dalai Lama speaks of the importance of seeing from a variety of perspectives.
Every event has many aspects and naturally one event can be viewed from many, many different angles….
Seeing events from different angles can be a challenge. Seeing another’s perspective, especially if seemingly different from our own, can be a test. Gaining awareness of our own stories, and perhaps even changing these, may be the leadership challenge of our time!

Whatever you have to say, leave
The roots on, let them
And the dirt
Just to make clear
Where they come from
