Circle of Courage News

July 15, 2014

Today is a good day! I just had the nicest interaction with a student who is working on his vocational skills and I am the beneficiary of his talent and work product. I want to thank the team that supports him in his quest for meaningful employment. They managed to discover his interests and guide his vocational resistance to vocational excitement. Fred explained to me how this occurred and I can only hope this gentle guidance & teaching model is utilized often. I see the Circle of Courage all through this experience:

  • Belonging: Knowing you are cared for, respected and part of a community.
  • Mastery: Skill based learning and a product that you can be proud of.
  • Independence: Growing and nurturing your abilities allowing you more  personal decision making.
  • Generosity: Helping others, mentoring those coming along behind you, demonstrating service to others.

Gordon included a letter thanking me for giving him the opportunity to do this copy job. I want to thank Gordon for his responsiveness to my request, the quality of his work, and the personal delivery of my material. Thanks to Fred, Andy, Brittani and Genna for creating an environment for Gordon to shine!
