Relationships change. People move into PULSE, learn what they have come to learn and then move on. Over the past six years I have watched as people contribute what they can, learn about PULSE and themselves and then move onto the next adventure. PULSE as an organization manages many kinds of relationships. What might be unique is that once people move on efforts are made to keep in touch and to redefine relationship rather than end it completely. I like that about us. It isn’t alwaysthe case but most who have worked with us in one capacity or another do keep in touch and maintain a relationship based on the principles and shared criteria for involvement.
Terry, our Executive Director is moving on. She will focus on her own company – TiLT. Although that leaves PULSE with a gigantic space to fill, I am happy to see that she is following her own dream. That is what PULSE is about empowering people to do what they do best. It would be inconsistent of us not to wish her well and to provide what ever support she needs to reach her own goals. Terry will become a PULSE Associate, offering PULSE products through TiLT.
Redefining relationships is what we do in every conversation that we have in our lives. It is interesting to me to see the PULSE philosophy working especially within our own company. A structured conversation makes even difficult conversations successful. Terry’s criteria for a better future and our needs as a company are considered as we plan to transition to this new level of involvement in each others work lives. The future becomes obvious when criteria are made clear and we move toward it. Best of luck to Terry and to PULSE.
