This is an excellent 10 minute intro into the things we need to consider when coming together in groups. Taking the time in the beginning to get clear on our purpose and our process helps enormously. This initial investment of time pays off in terms of a higher likelihood of achieving meaningful outcomes, more satisfaction of the people involved, and essentially a more "sustainable" organization.

In PatternDynamics terms, it's about Source and Structure, and the need to balance and integrate patterns for enduring health.
