What is it all about…

a poetic observation by Stien Michiels during a teaching on Complexity in an Art of Participatory Leadership Training, Brussels, 14 June 2018

The thing about puzzles is that they have so many sides
You can play with them, 
you can move them around 
and in the end they will find
their place in a whole that was predictable from the very start

The thing about people
is that they have so many sides
You might try to play with them,
you might try to move them around
but in the end they will move and play in their own way
and find their place in a continuously evolving whole 
that nobody saw in its totality ever before or ever will

This is not about making puzzles
This is about creating the best possible conditions 
for all of us to keep on creating the best possible whole together.
