Big Sur--Day 3

The leadership community for externally focused churches at Treebones Resort ended very strongly. Because we use the method developed by WildWorks, which is based on "Knowledge, Understanding, Decision / Action" we always follow that flow throughout the 48 hours we meet. So "Decision / Action" is expressed in teams presenting their conclusions on a presentation board, or in this case a flip chart. To say, "We have so many good ideas that now we have to go home and think about their implementation" isn't the way these communities work! So we ended yesterday with each team taking 3 minutes to present their "Action Learning Plan"--what they purpose to accomplish in the next 6 months.

It's hard to find words to express how great John and Corrine Handy are...how beautiful the Central Coast is and what these two elements can add to the creativity of teams. But I think it is all additive.

At the left is a model of the town of Gorda, one mile from Treebones. If you click on the picture you can see what the town (the general store also serves as City Hall) looks like.
