Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.

Thoughts from Class

I may gripe and grumble a bit about things at work, but tonight in class we were talking about the mission statements of the organizations we work for. In talking about ours I realized how much I enjoy my job and how proud I am to be a part of the place I work. It felt good.

What follows is a passage from our text. It's an interesting approach that I've never heard before. I like it.

Gossips thrive in every organization because they provide the real-time information and scuttlebutt that everyone wants to know about. They have insider information on decisions, changes, staffing, and personnel that is usually not supplied in memos and open meetings.

Forget about e-mail; make sure that the gossips for all the major informal networks are given information early and accurately. They will get it out to everyone on their network. In one school the school council made sure that the gossips for both the resistant staff and worried parents were filled in whenever a key decision was being considered. This got out quickly to their networks, reducing the carping and griping about being "in the dark."
