(Mouse-over for my “notes”)
When I’m learning about something, I like to start with the Big Picture, getting clear about its purpose.
Then I look closely at the pieces and their connections and how they work together and contribute to the whole.
As I do this, I see patterns and possibilities. I also see missing pieces and the what if’s…
I like to work with people collaboratively.
I want to understand CAUSE
– not in a “Who’s to blame?” way
– but in a “If we change this, will the result be different?
Will it be better?
Will the new result be worth the effort it took to make the change?”
