NEW MEMBERS in November:

Hi all,

As promised, I continue to share with you stuff I'm learning in my class "Public Narrative: Leadership, Storytelling, and Action!" This week's lecture, section, and readings have all been about examining POWER. Who has it? Who wants it? What's it good for? How do we get it?

Dr. Martin Luther King defined power as "the ability to achieve purpose " -- adding -- "whether it is good or bad depends on the purpose."

Teachers and support professionals in schools often feel discouraged - our morale is low - because we find ourselves in positions where we feel others have the control over our working lives and we are powerless to change things. I'm here to tell you we CAN shift the power balance. We CAN affect change. Give us a call to find out how to start!

Peace,
Kathy Rohde
