This is great, Ros--and Chris Corrigan sent a piece to the OSList a couple of
days ago about coaching which may also be relevant.
Tom's questions remind me a bit of Michael Herman's archetypal question, "Can
Catholics do Open Space?" Most of us have some anxiety about the unknown,
and that anxiety fixes itself on some aspect of the situation and looks for
answers or guarantees.
I suspect that even academics from different disciplines can manage Open
Space, and will be able to communicate with each other (which they already do in a
variety of situations). If they cannot manage it, that is a huge discovery,
important if not exactly heartening. But a good theme for the next Open
Good luck, Tom and Peggy!
