Our culture is evolving just as it has for thousands of years. During various periods pivoting change points caused our culture to take large swings in one or another direction.  Some of those moved our culture forward yet others set us back causing us to re-evaluate. Too often we look at these disruptive times as negitive as they cause unwanted change.

Looking at culture in your business, your neighborhood, your faith community, your family, it is dependent on who is inside that culture.

A culture where not winning is an opportunity for learning

Each day there are winners and those who lose. Our culture is attempting to cultivate an environment where no one loses and everyone wins.  Unfortunately this is not reality. Great learning takes place when you come up short and are not the victor. You learn things about yourself which are life lessons.  Important facts about how you prepare for challenges and how you deal with learning from the outcome. Taking away these vital learning opportunities only place you at a less than ideal place to achieve the best for your future.
