Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 5, 12:28 PM

Powerless is a myth. Power flows and how we use that power is the key to success. An important consideration is not to allow others to dictate the work we do. It is important to realize we are social and live in the world, but abdicating our power is giving up. When we take it back, we are able to speak and act courageously.
