Every country comes to Copenhagen with their own agenda, seeking to influence the agreement so that it favors their particular situation and demands less of them.
The moment I realized how misunderstood values were in organizations came around 15 years ago during a session I was facilitating with the top team of a resources company.
Last week I went to a yoga class in a centre built on a beautiful piece of land, with yoga platforms overlooking the ocean.
It has been there for about 40 years, despite pressure from nearby developers to sell the site. The experience was a most pleasurable one, as I am sure it is for the many travellers who visit. The center has an interesting history. The land was bequeathed by a father giving thanks for how yoga had transformed his daughter who had suffered a drug addiction and come out of it through yoga. He wanted others to have the same opportunity his daughter had.
