Creating a container for collaboration
Most attempts at working together to create change fail because the foundations were not put in place at the start. One of those foundations is often called a ‘container’ which just means that it holds the process of collaboration inside clear boundaries and limits. This requires strong foundations, clear purpose and well-defined boundaries.
Having understanding of our own power and that of others can be used to create these foundations and this container where people feel safe enough to stay in the heat and not retreat when it gets difficult.
