This post speaks about a theme we discussed a lot at The Warehouse Social Transformation Course – the importance of taking time to understand the true needs, rather than presuming you can see what the needs are and rushing to bring in your presumed solution; the central role of humility – ‘sitting under the tree’ with those in the community to learn and listen; and being aware of how power is used… Very thought provoking read. http://livingsocialjustice.com/2012/04/03/relinquishing-power/
