This is Laurence.
It is so great that you are coming in to assist. Thank You for freely giving your time, your energy, your love, your alacrity, your commitment, and your zeal to set up and to produce the Landmark Forum in South Africa. What's required of you - uncoerced, of your own volition - is to do what you said you would do. Nothing less than being your word in the matter is acceptable on this team, and in here you will be held accountable for being your word.
I want to let you in on the best kept secret about assisting the Landmark Forum While your promise is that you will be your word in the matter, you will get more out of assisting than you put in. To realize that, do not do things your way in here. To assist on this team requires that you discover how to do things the team's way. While that may or not be the same way as your way, there is an opportunity in here for you to uncover what it takes to operate seamlessly as team.
You will make a contribution in here (the possibilities of which are literally endless) and you will also get more out of leaving your way at home and discovering, instead, the team's way than you can now possibly imagine. And - if you like - you can always go back to doing things your way after the Landmark Forum is complete.
I am available to you if you would like to share your experience and be heard, or if you would like to make suggestions as to how we can become more effective, or if I can support you in any way. I am your Friend and your Partner and your Ally. Your support of the Landmark Forum in South Africa means the world to me.
Enjoy Yourselves. Thank You for being here.
I Love You.
