Think Purpose First

To help people have better lives, not just better paper. To help people have better lives we should be able to answer these 6 questions

  • What do people like, admire, or appreciate about the person?
  • What is important to the person?
  • What do others need to know or do if people are to have both what is important to and important for addressed and in balance?
  • What outcomes will help the person move toward a desired life with a balance between important to and important for?
  • What goals will help the person achieve these outcomes?

Three important outcomes from this approach

Person Centered Thinking underlies and guides respectful listening which leads to actions to ensure people (1) have positive control over the life they desire and find satisfying, (2) are recognized and valued for the contributions (current and potential) to their communities, (3) and are supported in a web of relationships, both natural and paid within their communities.

Person Centered skills reflect and reinforce values that…

  • Propel the learning cycle
  • Help us support rather than fix
  • Work for Humans
  • Work at every level of the organization
  • Build the culture of learning, partnership, and accountability
  • Affirm our belief that everyone can learn
