Inspired by recent conversations with Phil Cass I have been thinking about Organizational Practices. Juts the same way that we as individuals need practices to keep our centre and sanity in constant change (see my recent blog) - so our organisations need practices as well. Here's a quote form Phil and enjoy the video blog ...
"Leaders of organizations frequently talk about relationships being the core operating principle in their organizations. When I inquire as to how they "practice" relationships in their organizations there is rarely an answer. Organizations must practice being in relationship with each other for this to ever be a core principle in their organization." Phil Cass, Confluence Partner and CEO at Columbus Medical Association, Columbus Medical Association Foundation, Physicians Care Connection and Central Ohio Trauma System
There was a lot of interest in Village as a Venue following national coverage in the Globe and Mail and CBC regional radio coverage. I thought I would write a short blog on where I am at. I hope this blog provokes conversation, get some ideas circulating and invites people to get involved in the next steps for the idea ... I've put up a simple website at www.villageasavenue.com with more info too. More to come!
What's the idea?
The place we meet impacts the the quality and creativity of the conversations we have. If we want creative, innovative and interesting meetings then we need to be meeting in creative, innovative and interesting places. As someone who runs all kinds of events all over the world - too many times my heart has sunk when walking into a room with no windows and no character. We may have another option right where we live!
The village where I live has all the necessary facilities to be able to offer a boutique venue for conferences and conventions. I figure if Mahone Bay does then probably lots of other places do too. That seems to me like an opportunity to leverage assets we already have and bring some extra business and people into the village - good for everyone.
