The organizational agenda is to plan, execute, measure, quantify and produce.
The human agenda is to love and be loved, to be seen, heard and understood.
Organizations are populated, organized and led by humans.
How can this be?
We hide our deepest longing because it is abstract and seemingly, frighteningly unattainable.
We acquiesce to, and even abet an alternative agenda for the perceived sanctity of an equivocal certainty.
We work at cross purposes because integration seems beyond our reach.
If we reach out a little further, we just might grasp it. The trick is in believing it is there to be grasped.
