A visceral image to keep in mind - thanks! (...but it's our monster...)

Can I please have my good karma now?

Coming to you airmail express, with oo and xx.

I love this! You are not alone in the foundation world. This occurs in public planning workshops and in organizational management. Such dialogue can be fruitful, but you have to manage expectations. If asking for input is meant to be a sign of respect, so it must also be that participants should be informed about the parameters of their participation. No one wants to be asked for their opinion and then feel they are being dismissed. And, we should not shy away from a healthy argument, a fear not limited to the philanthropic community.

Thanks for sharing this, Natalie. Misery loves company :-)
