I met Christina Baldwin in the late 1990s. It was some leadership work that my boss at the time, Margaret Wheatley, was beginning to form with Christina. Christina had the circle part of it. And a bunch more.
Well became good colleagues and friends over the years. Christina influenced me much then, and has continued to do so over the 20+ years since. Influencing ways of thinking, ways of seeing. Influencing patience. Influencing kindness. Offering wisdom when others couldn’t.
I was moved recently by a blogpost from Christina — What Shall I do With My Old White Skin? As I have known her to do over these years, she inserts her story and context into an invitation to be in very significant learning. She poses a question to help frame an important journey. She offers a direction rather than a solution when that is what is called for. She remains honest, and articulate, about where she is on the path.
Enjoy the read. I did. And the taking stock of how we journey into these evolutions of the times.
