What if we all became artists in our workplace?

One bright Summer morning, in the heart of Pennsylvania, I was looking forward to an early morning discussion about water conservation design - in renal dialysis machines. As I didn’t even know precisely what renal failure was,  that conversation was never going to fly. But gradually the conversation - listen to the podcast here- turned to... Continue Reading →

What if we really valued all our children?

Somewhere on the shores of Lake Norman(I forget where exactly) in North Carolina I once again am graciously hosted by a total stranger, as we get to grips with her sightly disturbing 'What If' scenario.  Was my mental jamming partner, a lifelong teacher,  suggesting we didn't really value our children, judging by the way we educated them?...

In an amiable dinner table... Continue Reading →

A Black widow called Fat Mama
