(Approximate Read Time: 2 minutes + pictures!)
We had an amazing week in Delray Beach, Florida at the Community Change Experience! We had participants from Hawaii to New York, Alaska to Florida, British Columbia to Quebec. We are awaiting the photographs that were taken by a real professional but, in the meantime, we are sharing some photos we took that will give you a sense of the event. We are also still receiving evaluations from participants. So far, it looks like it was a grand slam. (Hey, it’s World Series time, right?) Here is one of our favorite comments…so far:
That is exactly what we hoped to do! As more photos and feedback comes in, we’ll share them out.
Tenacious Change Approach at the Community Change Experience
Tom Klaus, developer of the Tenacious Change Approach, led the opening teaching plenary at the Community Change Experience. For 18 minutes he spoke to the crowd about the meaning of shared ownership and why ownership matters. Then he invited Eric Jackson (Black Yield Institute, Baltimore), Lauren Zuchman (BeWellPBC, West Palm Beach), Stan Martin (HOPE Buffalo, Buffalo), and Lisa Attygalle (Tamarack Institute, Waterloo, ON) to respond and share their ideas on the topics, and then preview the workshops they were leading.
Tom’s teaching plenary focused on a foundational mindset shift and essential operating principle of the Tenacious Change Approach – ownership and ownership-based change. Throughout the remainder of the event, he received numerous requests from participants for the text of his teaching plenary. In the coming few weeks he’ll be making that text available in print as well as a video of the presentation. The video won’t be shot before a live audience, but it will have some good graphics! In the meantime, please take a few minutes to check out Getting Started with the Tenacious Change Approach
