Our Outer Accountability – Living Focus

Commitment as an individual begins the flow that unfolds into a productive, collective accountability.

The act of becoming a facilitator was accomplished in the art of practice. Without the risk of trial and error−and as I learned and played with new knowledge−I would have never found myself standing in the middle of varying collectives ready to listen and flow with what I heard.

In my hunger for knowledge I become ever more accountable for what I do with the knowing; and what I do must translate into a living focus. Focus lives externally, in outer accountability, only as it finds life internally; rooted deeply in your passion. Your outwardly focused passion, supported by values, strengths, and skill, is precisely what we need from you when you are standing before us.

Our moment-to-moment experience is improvisational, even though it exists within a structure or plan. … True improvisation is always an act of responsibility: it implies a conscious morality.
−Patricia Ryan Madson, Improv Wisdom

Living focus means you keep going in spite of failure; and yes, in spite of success. Remember, that in leadership, maturity is about practice. The art of practice opens you to the flow and connection of knowledge and application−a perpetual learning-to-application impact. This is the progressive power of accountability.

In view of a larger story, your focus is a choice−a decision confidence to which we are drawn as you trust your own passion and purpose.
