More from Peter Block about invitation.
We come together to create a new possibility through having a conversation that we have not had before. We do not come together to negotiate interests, share our stories, or problem-solve the past or future.
No one will be asked in any way to yield on their commitments or interests. We are not coming together to decide anything. We begin with the belief that the commitments and interests of each of us have to be honored and taken into account by all.
Each agrees to participate in all discussions. There are always emergencies, and always pressing priorities, but the loss of even one person, for just one meeting, immensely reduces our chance of success./blockquote>;
