The Power of the Small
Aganetha Dyck, my mentor on this project, has constantly reminded me verbally and through her work about the power of the small. Instead of scaling up the ZingHIVE project (I was generating a lot of grandiose ideas of what could be accomplished) I am in the process of scaling it down and finding the power of the small.
So rather than a long blog post about bees, organizations, and behavior, here is a short quotation to mull over from Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield and Andrw Shimberg in the Fall 2008 MIT Slodan Management Review article, How to have influence:
Effective influencers understand
that what shapes and sustains the behavioral norms of an organization
are lots of small interactions.
Catch the buzz and find the power in the small. By the way, if you LIKE the project Facebook page that will trigger a one cent donation to honey bee and human well being!
