Every goal needs milestones.
Milestones where the big picture which the participants are contributing to becomes visible. Where dialogues take place which provide inspiration for the next stages of implementation.
Events where the significance of one’s own actions can be experienced in a way which provides considerable motivation. Where participants are spirited away from the numerous day-to-day e-mails, meetings and telephone calls so that a “helicopter perspective” can be adopted.
Where face-to-face contact with other people, who one would otherwise see infrequently leads to a new, deeper affinity, which provides stability for success.
