Four themes clearly emerged from the business community:
We will cultivate alignments. There will be opportunities for us to align ourselves with others, and there will be opportunities for us to help others find alignments amongst themselves. Both activities are important. However, we must bear in mind that a perfect match in two human perspectives is as rare as a straight line in nature. Compromise is what breeds positive change – not a domination of will. We can never force someone's perspective to shift to the exact place where we want it to be. With regards to our own image, we can only realistically expect to draw someone's opinion away from the proverbial badlands of regulatory obstruction and into the greener pastures of intelligent advocacy and aligned principled relationships.
The question we must answer now is how should we apply ourselves to this process? How can we use our team's resources – our people and our capital – in a way that we can support our industry partners and help them thrive?
It was said that, "Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal." Our ideal – our beacon of success – is relational excellence. If you would like to be a part of the conversation, contact Bob Parry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
