Reflecting back on the potential I first saw for this work and myself in it and how that has shifted — what is the next order of actualization (i.e., developmental edge) I am being pulled toward?

I'm being pulled towards manifesting a system of programs at a higher order of complexity (meaning, more complex to conceptualize, manage and operationalize) than the work we've been able to accomplish so far, in a way that grows the viability of our organization and the visibility of this work in the world.

What inner development will that require?

Right now I feel like I've got a bunch of ideas and impulses that are siloed from one another and I'm looking for the nodal intervention that will bring them all together into something coherent. This will require a really strong process of working together as a team, and I think that the inner edge of my capability that I need to work right now has to do with being an effective resource to that team, which includes folks both way ahead of me on the path as well as newer folks that are walking behind me on the path.

What would reconciling those make possible in terms of the evolving role I could play and the unique contribution I could make?

I think that this is really about my developing my capability as an individual while guiding the process of the organization itself developing new capability. I feel that I need to pave the way by being a learner myself, but I need to lead while learning if that makes sense.
