A Deeper Place to Stand

The last few blogs have talked of learning in the cauldron of uncertainty. A friend recently sent me the following quote from Parker Palmer: “Great teachers will not just shatter our illusions. They will also bear embodied witness to the knowledge that there is a deeper place to stand when the ground beneath our feet gives way.”


  • Why do great teachers and great leaders shatter our illusions?
  • What is an “embodied witness?”
  • What is the “deeper place to stand?”
  • How could we use this passage to create a more positive organization?
