Leadership & Communication for Innovation
helping organizations and individuals learn the skills and mindset for full participation
“Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out ... because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you... So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm... and walk through it, step by step... You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about.” – Haruki Murikami, from Kafka on the Shore
