Happy Anniversary! We marked the 20th anniversary of HSD Institute with a meeting in the HSD Community Commons. The earliest members of our community connected with the most recent, as we shared stories and impacts! We closed the celebration with a musical and visual walk down memory lane. We hope you enjoy it, too.  This was the first in a series of quarterly HSD Community Commons sessions where Associates share their questions and discoveries. Join us for the next one on June 21.

SO WHAT can our collective experience and intelligence teach us?  NOW WHAT are options for action today to create the tomorrow we desire? Join the HSD Community to explore what is possible when we: see patterns clearly, seek to understand, and act with courage to transform turbulence and uncertainty into possibility for all.

Did you think, “I should share this with colleagues!”? And then, when you made time to sit down to write about it, did the words refuse to come?  If you are like either one of us, it’s not just that words wouldn’t come! You couldn’t figure out how to start, what needed to be said as your core message, or how to bring it to a close!

But in the face of such complexity, how can you even know the questions to ask? In today’s blog post, Royce offers suggestions for Inquiring directly into the complex nature of your world.
