Hi Ben!

Now you certainly have "tickeled my toes" with this one!
Thank you very much for your honest way of sharing your inner live.
Sometimes that's a risky buissiness!
With a little shame I dare to ask you this:
"How deep does this experience and similar experiences go? How long do they
last for you?
Are they gone and forgotten by the end of next week and are you on to
something new and more exciting then the last experience?
These questions might sound insulting, ironicly or even sarcastic to you,
but they are not meant as such!
The question that bothers _me_ on and on is: How can I prevent myself from
forgetting what I 've learned? And as a next consequence: How can I help my
clients not to forget what they have learned?
So often I discover that I forget my own'live-lessons'. So who am I to
tell my clients............
What do you think is necessary to be done to prevent that people in
organisations forget what they've learned?

Bon No=EBl from Holland!
