Relationship between the 4Rs and Probe-Connect-Create Change-Reflect (continued)
Does the following parallel work?
Could they all be about bridging gaps that always arise given the unruliness of complexity?
Q: Why would you take a risk? Why would you probe?
(These questions are asked in the spirit that change (which includes actions) flows readily once the vertical-unity is in place.)
Answer 1: Because there are necessarily gaps to bridge.
A2: Because once you have respect and connections you can risk and probe—you don’t need to continue along previous lines.
A3: You don’t have to take a risk or probe. Indeed, we can expect that you won’t all the time—the support will be insufficient. However, when you are ready to do so the 4Rs will help—or the 4Rs will help you get ready.
Q: Why would you Probe-Connect-Create Change-Reflect?
If you invoke the factor in the left column, we ask why and then categorise the reasons given in the other 5 columns
