One of things that we are hearing a lot is that the bright spots framework is giving people the language to explain their success. In writing the report we hoped that it would be useful to help people assess their organizations and identify how they could improve, but we are thrilled to see that it is a useful tool for groups that are experiencing success as well! We got an email from Cathy Sang at the Mingei International Museum in San Diego, who says that the report “helped me better understand why our Museum has thrived these past few years while others around us have not. I shared it with our Museum’s director who then shared it with our Board chair. We plan to use it as a central discussion theme at our management team and Board offsite meetings this July.”
We’re working on developing some more tools for leading conversations and workshops using the bright spots framework. To be kept in the loop, sign up here.
