"Beyond the walls is a battle cry that mobilizes . . . The wallsthat surround us, protect us, and embrace us can also inhibitmovement, limit understanding, restrict engagement, and diminishour relevance in the wider world. I realized that my walls, and thewalls of leaders everywhere, were not only the walls of currentpolicy, practice, procedure, and assumption but also the walls ofthe past--safe, familiar, and secure. This recognition was just thefirst of several as we worked through a process to take ourselvesand our organizations beyond the walls to new levels of performanceand positive changes in the lives of people."
