I’M NOT EXPECTING ANY ONE PERSON to come up with a way to right all of the wrongs in the world and create change in the world over night. No one person has all the facts. But we can get together with like-minded individuals and start planning processes that will chip away at some of the wrongs that we see here in America and all around. Collaboration brings together the best ideas from everyone, and then creates a synergy that may produce an even better idea than anyone imagined.
Do we ever get so attached to our ideas that we don’t allow others to come in and address an issue in a new way?
Other professions have found that by bringing in people with a variety of knowledge and ideas, they create collaborations that produce solutions that work. Their resulting solution would never have been dreamed up by any single individual. It often takes group collaboration and all the expertise to think in new ways and chart a new course. Be willing to collaborate and you may find that the best solutions are in the group, not in yourself.
“I am driven to create awareness of how much displacement and relocation (historically and currently) our cultural community has had to endure; especially, as I see how the economic developmental agenda of our city is pushing out my family and my culture from my neighborhood. My story and the story of my community drive me to write and create a documentation of what has happened and is happening.” – Spoken Word Poet, Sydney Valerio (www.sydneyvalerio.com)
