Strength Based Co-Creativity - Interview with Craig Caesar

Creating change takes many different strategies and styles.  Different people have different strengths. If there is an area where you are weak, find others in that area that are strong.  For example, I am weak in technology.  I was most grateful when I found a colleague in my local area, Craig Caesar, to help me with my website.  I discovered that we shared common values and interest in the community.  Rather than a top down, “find the expert” approach, he uses strengths of creativity to develop a co-creative approach.  He helped me to better use my skills and resources while he provided invaluable consultation on the design and technology to best meet my needs.  

Many times we can learn technology from the internet, but takes more than the internet, face book, and twitter to get things done.  It takes the expertise and talent of interactive live contact too.  I find that the bonds of real people in the community are stronger than the ties of the virtual world. It is the direct community contact and the deeper bonds that helps us to feel supported enough to take meaningful risks for our values.

Every month I host a teleconference in which I interview a guest on their character strengths and how they used them to create change.  Last month Craig Caesar shared how he uses his strength of creativity in his unique approach to website work.  You can listen to the replay using the audio player below.
