Care and Feeding

In an Open Space conference last summer, one young woman walked in, looked
around, and announced "I'm not sittin' in no circle!"

Then she put her things on a chair, got a cup of coffee, and sat down in the
circle of chairs.   And she was a very active participant all day, too.
Lovely to have a choice!

The issue of choice in school programs where the course or meeting is
required is a tough one.   I opened space for a graduate-school program, and they had
struggled with this issue.   In the end, everyone came, but some admitted
that they had not felt they had a real choice in the decision.
