It surprises me. I went to the meeting believing that I had thoroughly considered the merits and disadvantages of the issue. I took my place in the circle of chairs and waited for the meeting to begin.

I enjoy watching the process. People with different careers, experience, education, and gender mix their thoughts together like a cakemix. There is no shortcut to the process.

Invariably ideas are shared that I have never thought of regarding the issue being discussed. I’ve heard it said that a knowledgable committee produces a better result than a person working alone. I would say that is true.

These groups presented their ideas with respect and tolerance. Ridicule or censure are not permitted. There is no end to the good that can be done when people treat each other with deference and respect.
