The intention with the Values workshop (a Café run as a World Café process) was to initiate a very different story about the way things are at a retailer we were working with. We could not have asked for a more successful outcome.
One of the women who had been working as a secretary walked up to Melanie afterwards to say “I have been in this organization for 28 years and no one has ever asked me what I thought. I can not thank you enough for this opportunity”.
When Melanie told me the story I was reminded of all the times when people came to me after similar workshops with a very similar story: “I have been in this organization for so many years and I have never been invited to be part of the conversation. Thank you SO much for making it possible for me to be part of this conversation”
