On Wednesday I spoke at the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland annual “Raise the Roof Gala”. I enjoyed this opportunity becasue Habitat for Humanity is modeling the way for organizational effectiveness. Habitat for Humanity celebrates the power of the individual spirit. The volunteers and homeowners who are part of the organization are given important roles. Their voices are strong!
I suggested Wednesday night that the Aquarian Age is going to be about a transition from institutions holding the power to individuals holding the power. Organizations that celebrate the individual are going to attract people and support. Organizations that resist sharing power are going to lose ground.
Habitat for Humanity is an orgainzation that strengthens the voices of others. In doing so, their power goes far beyond building houses! They are a modeling the way forward for others!
