7 thoughts on “More on Return to Core Values”

  1. Ben, I again offer my support for this idea:

    “I like Diane’s idea of maybe turning the forum into a crisis spot for anyone. Just that. Are the other categories currently on the forum adding or detracting from our focus? Just have a kind of ‘I need an answer now!’ kind of thing over there on the forum. Ideas on that?”

    The forum needs to be as specific as possible and really the only thing that one can’t do here on the blog is get immediate feedback on urgent problems. Anything more “big picture” can be filtered through you and discussed here on the blog.

    I would also like to see the “successes” part of the forum stay to balance out the desperate feel of the “specific questions” category. It’s fun to just shoot the breeze over positive experiences and I’d say that’s another thing you can’t do here on the blog easily unless it passes through your inbox as a “report from the field.”

    So the forum needs to fulfill a need and add functionality on top of the blog. The instant Q&A-type feature is the role of the forum in that vein.

  2. Growing pains are great, right? I like the idea of the big idea vs the small stuff. Please may we never lose sight of the fact that new people need a place to get an answer to the “small stuff” . The “small stuff”, to a new practitioner can be major and we must always remember that. We can’t become a place where only the big ideas are discussed. The Forum can provide a lifeline and the blog can function as the place where great truths are vetted. The big ideas are our framework, but everyone has to have a place where more immediate needs are met.

    1. Hey Ben,

      Could you clarify something for me? I am not understanding the path that led to the need to call for a return to core values?

      Are you feeling a need to publish each and every thing that people send you? Would it not make sense for you to decide if a piece is in keeping with the core values and, if it is not, could you ask the person to put it over on the forum?

      I think if that were the policy we would be more careful to stay focused…

      Am I missing something?

      thanks

  3. It’s more nebulous than that for me skip. Let’s define the core values and maybe that is not the best term. By core values I simply mean the Big Ideas that we have going for us now. They are starting to break up a little. It’s hard to express properly. I want the simplicity we had some time ago, but as things keep changing I am losing that. Does that clarify at all? I don’t have a problem with the stuff in the queue. It’s all good stuff. I think the forum is good. I’m just getting wigged out because the overall work is becoming less clear. Can you imagine what new people must think with the acronyms and all? I want to address that in the organization of the site but don’t know how.

  4. For me, as a new member, I think what would be most helpful is to have a template for all the “core” stuff in the template section. That way I don’t have to search through all the articles to find how to do each thing and what each thing means.

  5. Kyle and Suzanne I couldn’t agree more that we should have those Big Ideas/Core Values/Most Important Links in one place. I never thought of that. Now how to do it? Do we agree that the list above is the final list we want? Are those the key posts of the last seven years? I know they are for me. They are the best wine we have bottled here and the strategies that most of us base our daily instruction on. OK unless I hear back I will proceed to load them, with their links, into the Templates section. They are not really templates but some day they may be. I agree that what is important right now is just to have the links there, or somewhere.
