    Hi Portia, very inspiring talk.. I agree that we can build a better working environment by planting the seeds of personal growth, fulfilling other’s personal development needs. We tend to expect that personal development is the job of our managers or HR and blindly believe that it’s a big task to take on. However we can make a difference tomorrow by taking a baby step towards the right direction. As David W. Hutton puts it nicely ‘Plant clumps of seedlings in hospitable places and nurture them. As they mature these trees will spread their seeds and the forest will eventually cover the fertile land’.
