Jean what you suggest is good but I believe we do need something very tangible so that we know exactly where a new idea is in our system. Someone suggests it, we tease it out, we refine it into a more concise form and approve it. We then present it to members and work on the feedback received to create a “final” document published as such on the website but revised annually. Your phases are there but more operationally defined.
- It is almost impossible for anyone, even the most ineffective among us, to continue to choose misery after becoming aware that it is a choice. Dr. William Glasser
