Think Differently: ideas that change communities
25 – 26 Jun 2015
Today's rooster is tomorrow's feather duster, and the same thing goes for doves and peacocks and owls. You've got to keep the golden eggs coming, only better - double-yolkers, and organic. You have to think differently.
You need time to reflect too. If you're not going forward, you're slipping backward - and you should be learning, either way. When did you last take time out to reflect on what your organisation is doing well, and what it could do better? What's the reception for people pointing out your missteps, mistakes, and failures?
You can't ever stop changing and adapting. Every advance creates new expectations. And you can't work in isolation.
At Communities in Control 2015 we set aside some time to be open to the future. To take the long view, and the high ground, and the red pill. For a couple of days, we knew what it meant to think differently.
