Our organizations are crippled by separation. To be effective, we must repair these broken relationships within teams and within whole organizations.

When we begin to replace:

Separation with Closeness
Concealment with Visibility
Ignoring with Listening
Suspicion with Trust
Blame with Group Reflection

Punishment with Appreciation
Defensiveness with Vulnerability
Fear with Courage
Frustration with Fellowship

We can begin to work effectively again.
