Leadership and Team Communication: There’s a Place for Us – Somewhere

In the play, West Side Story, Tony sings to Maria:

There’s a place for us / Somewhere a place for us / Peace and quiet and open air / Wait for us / Somewhere

Intimacy needs such a place. It’s difficult to form and sustain a meaningful relationship in a chaotic, noisy and closed environment. Forming a group into a creative team, a team that has a meaningful relationship with each other and their vision-mission-values, requires a Somewhere place.

Believers go to their church, mosque or temple on a regular basis to remind themselves that they are members of a community. They go there to be inspired, to be infused with spirit. They don’t live there but they do regularly visit there. Leaders and creative teams need to frequent an inspiring place as well. Cramped and crowded meeting spaces just don’t cut it.

I believe the right space for idea generation and creative strategic thinking is critical. It’s why I opened The Idea Loft in Kansas City. Here are other cities with excellent venues worth your consideration:
