  • In every society, organization, or group, something works
  • What we focus on becomes our reality
  • The language we use creates our reality
  • Reality is created in the moment, and there are multiple realities
  • The act of asking questions of an organization or group influences the group in some way
  • People have more confidence and comfort to journey to the future when they carry forward parts of the past
  • If we carry parts of the past forward, they should be what is best about the past
  • It is important to value differences
