I like the five points by Olivia Mitchell at Speaking About Presenting on avoiding information overload in your presentations. “A presentation is a taster for what you have to share. It can raise awareness of your topic. It can provoke different ways of thinking about an issue. It can inspire and motivate.”

Seth Godin asks us to focus on creating genuine connections, even in the midst of on the job frustration – to quilt not quit.

I cut my facilitation teeth years ago on a program that brought communities, designers and artists together to enhance their public spaces. Social Spaces reminds me of those years and the power of bringing people together to explore and create opportunities for their community.  Social Spaces’ Idea Cards include this photo of New York’s High Line project, a wonderful example of community and using what you have.  Ten years ago, two people wanted to save a disused railway line from demolition.  That initiative created a public park and has blossomed into so much more.  Thanks to Erin Kreeger for the link to Social Spaces.
