To create is to be human. To be human is to create. Creating should not and cannot be solely the domain of the arts. While my background is in the visual arts, my life has made me an organizer, an educator, a nonprofit executive, a consultant, an entrepreneur, a product manager, a coach, a parent and so much more. Any success I have had in any of these realms, personally or professionally, can be directly attributed to my education in the arts. The creative process is about learning and growth and, at times, even survival. This book shares the sustenance creating has provided no matter where life has taken me.

Power is a fundamental dynamic in every relationship we have - relationships with each other and with the organizations and institutions around us. To transform power and put it into action to positively impact our work and our world, we must first acknowledge our own power. In doing so, we must also help others find theirs. Only when we bring our power together as "we" will we be able to build and sustain meaningful, transformative work over time.
