Throw a stone or two into the water and see where the ripples go.   It’s an image that’s sitting with me.   One that emerged from a reference to the Cynefin Framework at Crumbs, a workshop led by Johnnie Moore and Viv McWaters.  A stone in the water.

Complex environments call for you to probe, sense and then respond.

Do something.  See, hear, feel what happens.

Then respond with something.

Something small.

It requires trust in yourself as a facilitator.  Trust in your instincts, your first response.

Trust that the ripples will have an impact, even if you don’t know what that impact will be or what it was.

You cannot not influence someone.

HT to Shawn Callahan at Anecdote for the Cynefin Framework explanation.
